Not to be confused with contemporaneous Harvard player Eric Nielsen.

Erik Nielsen played quizbowl for the Florida high school all-stars, Boston University, and UCLA from 1999 to 2005. He was most famous in quizbowl for extensive literature and trash knowledge and for hastily quitting quizbowl and academia after a frustrating experience at the 2005 ICT. He has since become more famous out of quizbowl as a standup comedian and actor (under the SAG name "Erik Charles Nielsen") who portrays "Garrett Lambert" on NBC's Community.

Erik Nielsen is the only former denizen of the Quizbowl IRC channel to achieve "celebrity quizbowl alum" status.
