Aspiring Comedian From Arlington Joins Cast of The Real World

A 24-year-old Herndon native and current Arlington resident is a cast member on the upcoming season of MTV’s The Real World: Back to New Orleans.

Eric Patrick, an aspiring comedian and State Department employee, is “known for his dreamy eyes,” according to his MTV biography.

Eric is also “a handsome ladies’ man and has perfected the art of juggling various girls at one time.” I guess you can chalk that up to a State Department education in the art of diplomacy and multilateral negotiations.

From Facebook and the internet, we learn that Eric graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in political science. According to one account, he first came to the attention of Real World producers while attending a casting call at a bar in Adams Morgan in November.

Eric has performed stand up comedy around D.C. and Baltimore for the past three years. He advanced to the second round of the 2009 “Funniest Fed” contest and placed third in a competition called “Baltimore’s Next Superstar.”

See a NSFW clip of Eric’s comedy after the jump.

The new season of the Real World, set in New Orleans for the second time in series’ 24-year history, will premiere on Wednesday, June 30. You’ll recall that D.C played host to the Real World for the first time last year. Those guys down in New Orleans have all the luck.
