Erich Schwarz, a trained industrial businessman, attended the Bochum School of Drama and was engaged between 1958 and 1967 at stages in Bielefeld, Mannheim, Cologne and Lübeck, where he met his future wife Ulla. In 1967, Boleslaw Barlog hired him to the Schillertheater in Berlin, whose ensemble he belonged to until the closure of the house in 1993. In 2003, Schwarz and his acting colleague Manfred Eisner founded the reading stage "LesArt WIDERHALL" and taught lesbian children in a legasthenia centre co-founded by him. At the end of the 1960s, Erich Schwarz also started working for film and television and had guest appearances in well-known series such as Liebling Kreuzberg, Der Alte, Polizeiruf 110, Praxis Bülowbogen and several crime scene episodes. In the cinema, Schwarz was seen in the two Loriot films Ödipossi and Pappa ante portas in small roles as waiters. In addition, he worked in a series of radio plays until the mid-1990s.
