After graduating, he began performing stand-up throughout the Bay Area and quickly made a name for himself. He is now a professional comedian who can be seen performing at clubs and colleges across the country. In 2005, Louis had a great year, appearing in both the Montreal Comedy Festival and Atlanta’s “Laffapalooza” Comedy Festival.

With his high-energy, physical style of comedy, Byrne has evolved throughout the years into an extremely versatile entertainer that delivers on a day-to-day basis.

After winning TBS’ cutthroat competition, the Myspace Standup or Sitdown Comedy Challenge, Byrne was hurtled into a brilliant television and film career.

In 2008, Byrne’s first one-hour special, Steve Byrne’s Happy Hour, premiered on Comedy Central and further cemented his star status.
