Long Bio

Eric Thompson has been delighting and entertaining audiences since the early 1980’s with his unique style of comedy, magic, and illusions. Eric is an accomplished comedic magician, a veteran of hundreds of venues including comedy clubs, theaters, college campuses and corporate events. His distinctive variety of humor, his individual flair and his cleverly adept ability to amaze has brought rave reviews from audiences and media alike.

Eric Thompson was born and raised in Warren, Ohio. After completing his high school education at Howland High School, Eric attended Youngstown State University and Kent State University. While still a student, he began performing magic and sleight of hand at local bars and restaurants. About the same time, Eric wrote a few jokes and worked on his delivery and presentation of stand-up comedy at Tickle’s Comedy Club in Warren on their weekly amateur nights. After winning several consecutive amateur night competitions, Eric was booked to be the opening act for several headlining comedians that were on their national tour.

Shortly thereafter—and after much encouragement from several well known and highly regarded comedians—Eric combined his stand up comedy act with his well-honed magic act. He refined and sharpened his talents at amateur nights in comedy clubs in Pittsburgh, PA., Cleveland and Akron, OH, and in the mid-1980s, Eric launched his entertainment career with a tour through more than eight states and Canada. He performed shows at colleges, comedy clubs, nightclubs, performing arts centers, corporate events, and private parties.
With no designs on slowing down after thirty years of entertaining audiences everywhere, Eric Thompson has continued to dazzle and thrill crowds with his performance of magic and illusion while providing side-splitting laughter with his incomparable sense of comedic timing, his uproarious sense of humor and his unrivaled hilarious, sharp improvisational skills. Eric takes great pleasure and pride in entertaining and amazing each audience he encounters.

Outside of his entertainment career, Eric is married to Susan. They have three children; Sara (married to Josh), Eric Thompson Jr., Katlyn (married to Briar), one granddaughter, Madilyn Grace and two grandsons Elliot and Grayson. Eric continues to live in Newton Falls, where he served as a firefighter and emergency medical technician with the Newton Falls Fire Department. He has also served two terms as a Newton Falls City Councilman. In addition to his magic, comedy, and civic work within his community, Eric owns and operates several successful businesses including Satolli Carpet & Floor Covering , a full-service retail carpet and flooring store in Downtown Warren. He has served on several boards for philanthropic, civic, business, and professional organizations over the years in his efforts to make his community and the region surrounding his home and business a better place to live, work, and play.
