Erin McGathy is an American podcast host, artist, and comedian who is a force to be reckoned with within the industry. She is best known for her work on This Feels Terrible, as co-host of Human Conservation along with Wayne Federman and Harmontown.
Erin McGathy Wiki, Bio
Erin was born in Japan on December 5, 1985, but she was raised in San Diego, California, by her parents who were preachers. She has Japanese citizenship and belongs to the Asian ethnic group.
She found her love for comedy already in high school, where she started with her improvisational comedy. She became interested in acting at a very early age, which led her to pursue a career in television, where she worked both as a presenter and as a comedian. While she has been working in this field since 2017, 31-year-old McGathy first became famous as the presenter of This Feels Terrible. She was later named co-host of Human Conversation along with Wayne Federman and the “comptroller” of the Harmontown podcast.
In 2007 she began her acting career with an appearance with the Upright Citizens Brigade. Subsequently, her solo show This Feels Terrible was broadcast after three years in the theatre.
Together with her comedian colleague Wayne Federman, Erin co-hosted the podcast Human Conservation in 2015, where they discussed a variety of often intriguing and tortuous topics without the need to bring technology onboard.
Erin McGathy Wedding, Family, Divorce
Family life is not really one of Erin’s strengths, or so it seems. She was married to her boyfriend Dan Harmon, who makes his living as an American writer, producer, and dubbing artist. The couple got engaged in 2013 and entered into a life-long engagement in November 2014 at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum. Harmon hosted a huge wedding and also posted their wedding news on his podcast.
However, their marriage lasted barely a year before it broke up. Her divorce may have raised a few eyebrows, and Erin had to turn to social media to make a public statement about the end of her marriage.
“It is sad to announce that @danharmon and I are getting a divorce. We ask that you respect our privacy when we discuss it openly in our respective podcasts.”
While Erin is currently single and shows no signs of dating anyone, her husband Dan Harmon seems to have moved on. He started a relationship with a new girlfriend, Cody Heller after the couple split up. Apparently, for couples, it doesn’t mean they live in the same room, in the same profession, but that they are happy forever.
As a producer and voice actor, Harmon created and produced the NBC comedy television series Community, co-created the adult swim animation series Rick and Morty, and co-founded the alternative television network/website channel 101.
Harmon was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was a member of ComedySportz Milwaukee. In 2011, Harmon began hosting a monthly live comedy show and podcast at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood called Harmontown, which became a weekly offering after he was fired from the community. The show is hosted by Jeff B. Davis.
In Harmontown, there was a regular part where the hosts played an ongoing campaign of pen and paper role-playing games, first Dungeons & Dragons and later Shadowrun, with the help of Game Master Spencer Crittenden. Guests at the show included Hollywood personalities as well as Harmon’s ex-wife, podcaster Erin McGathy.
Due to their short-lived romance, Erin and her ex-husband did not have the opportunity to produce offspring. So when they split up, there was really nothing to bring them together but their work. Still, they remained good friends.
In January 2016, Erin moved from California to Dublin, Ireland, to leave the past behind and live a happy life and pursue her career.
Apparently, the 31-year-old actress and comedian have worked really hard for the things she enjoys now. Over the years she has made an attractive amount of money from her career and added a luxurious touch to her life. While Erin’s net worth is not yet known, her former husband, Dan Harmon, seems to be making money as a renowned American writer and actor. His net worth is estimated at around $5 million.
