Early Life and Podcast BeginningsWhile Erin was born in Japan, her father was a preacher, and her family later moved to San Diego, California where she was raised. During high school, she developed a strong interest in improvisational comedy, and joined the Upright Citizens Brigade which is a comedy sketch and improvisational group based in Chicago. She began performing in the group’s theatre in 2007, leading her to eventually work on her own projects. In 2010, she debuted her solo show about relationships called ‘This Feels Terrible”, which premiered at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre. From its stage beginnings also came the idea of a podcast of the same name, to which were invited various friends and comedians as guests to talk about their relationships. Numerous popular comedians can be heard on the show, including Rob Schrab, Dan Harmon, Wayne Federman and Marc Maron. Her collaboration with these other artists led her to be featured in other podcasts as well. She also had a guest role in an episode of the television series “Community”, created by Dan Harmon.

The show also featured Jeff B. Davis from “Whose Line is It Anyway?”, and was initially a live comedy show, but after Harmon left the community it has been released as a podcast. Numerous guests have also been heard on the show, including Dana Carvey, Felicia Day, Aubrey Plaz, and John Mayer. The show later started a Dungeons & Dragons session at the end of each episode of which she became a regular member.
