At the age of ten, Erica Rhodes started her entertainment career by voicing the conscience of legendary humorist and writer, Garrison Keillor on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and has worked on that show ever since. She has performed on stage with Meryl Streep for PBS’ “A Prairie Home Companion Celebrates the 4th of July” special and co-starred with Martin Sheen when the famous radio show played L.A.’s Greek Theatre and Hollywood Bowl shows. Her work can also be heard on the Grammy-nominated album, “Garrison Keillor’s Comedy Theatre.” In 2012, she also became a writer for the show when it toured Houston, NYC and San Francisco.
Erica starred in the cult horror films “Plague Town” and recently wrapped a supporting role in “Dog House” directed by Rodman Flender and starring Marylynn Rajskab. She also starred in “Big Sky,” an indie road trip movie that followed a young couple’s journey from L.A. to Montana. Erica co-created and starred in the award-winning web series, “Apt. 45,” but is probably best known for the character of Sandy in Iron Sink Media’s web series, “Upstairs Girls” and her own hit spin-off, “Sandy’s Channel.” Collectively, those two web series have had an astonishing quarter billion hits. In 2011, Erica was nominated for an LA Comedy Award for “Most Hilarious Leading Actress in a Web Series.” She produced and starred (with Ray Wise and Oscar nominee Sally Kirkland) in the short film “Posey” which premiered at the 2013 Idyllwild Cinema Fest. The film went on to make the festival rounds, garnering many awards.
Erica co-hosts Bil Dwyer’s “Stardumb!,” a game/talk show comedy hybrid that has been featured at San Francisco Sketchfest and L.A.’s RIOT! Fest, starring major comedy players like Zach Galifianakis, Simon Helberg, Oscar Nunez, and Maria Bamford. She is also a fast-rising standup comic who has guested on popular podcasts like “The JV Club,” “The Mental Illness Happy Hour” and “The Self Help Comedy Hour.”
