Before landing a career in showbiz, Eric Froilan Nicolas worked a couple of odd jobs. He was a member of the dance group "Old School" and he used to be a dancer in a bar. Another job that he had was of an animator for a company which produced the popular animation "Dragon Ball Z."
Eric started out in the comedy industry as a stand-up comedian. With a stroke of luck, he was discovered to come on stage one night to be the subject of banter of the on-duty stand-uppers. He delivered antics and the bar owner who was able to watch him that night, hired him right then and there.
His career as an audience jester began when TV host Willie Revillame was able to watch his show in the comedy bar he works for. The host hired him and made him work for Wowowie.

Eventually, he became the jester of shows like ASAP 20, The Voice of the Philippines, and Bet on Your Baby, among others.
Aside from delivery funny lines, Eric also uses his wordsmith know-how to compose songs while stuck in traffic.
Will his many talents be enough to earn him a title in the Your Face Sounds Familiar show?
