  • Steve Byrne

    Steve Byrne

    In just a few short years, Steve Byrne has risen through the ranks of the comedy world to become one of the industry’s most innovative and sought-after performers. 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.  Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Steve Byrne was born to a Korean mother and an Irish father. His unique background has given him the base comedic material for his first television show, Sullivan & Son, a half hour comedy on TBS.  The show is heading into its third season, premiering on Tuesday, June 24th at 10pm. 
     
    Next up, Byrne will release his latest one hour standup comedy special, CHAMPION, on Netflix in May 2014.  He will then be taking his live show on the road along with his castmates; Ahmed Ahmed, Owen Benjamin and Roy Wood Jr.   The Steve Byrne & the Cast of Sullivan & Son Comedy Tour will begin in New York City in June and continue around the country through August. 

    After winning TBS’ cutthroat competition, the Myspace Standup or Sitdown Comedy Challenge, Byrne was hurtled into a brilliant television and film career.  As his popularity began to expand, Byrne was featured in his very own half-hour Comedy Central Presents which was soon voted as one of the best specials of all time in the Comedy Central Standup Showdown. His hilarious standup has been seen on NBC’s The Tonight Show, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS’s The Late Late Show and BET’s Comic View. In 2008, Byrne’s first one-hour special, Steve Byrne’s Happy Hour, premiered on Comedy Central and further cemented his star status. Packing an impressively wide range of appeal, Byrne’s comedy soon landed him on the The History of the Joke on the History Channel and the Discovery Channel’s The Science of Laughter.  He has since appeared on some of TV’s hottest shows including ABC’s The Middle, The Chapelle Show, G4’s The International Sexy Ladies Show, The Howard Stern Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, The Very Funny Show and was a series regular on NBC’s The Real Wedding Crashers. Byrne’s most recent hour special, The Byrne Identity, premiered last year on Comedy Central to rave reviews. 

    A true international comedian, Byrne has performed to sold-out crowds around the world.  He has been a featured comic at the Just for Laughs Festival (in Montreal, Toronto and Chicago), HBO’s US Comedy Arts Festival in Las Vegas and the CanWest Comedy Fest in Vancouver.  He has been part of several national comedy tours including The Jameson Comedy Tour, Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Tour, The Kims of Comedy, The Camel Cigarettes Sin City Tour, and his own national Myspace Comedy tour.  Byrne even had the honor of opening for esteemed musical acts such as Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Modest Mouse, Puddle of Mudd, Spoon, Rev. Horton Heat and many more.  As a big supporter of the US troops, Steve also headlined several USO tours in Afghanistan, Iraq, Japan and Guam.

    Byrne has appeared in the hit comedies The Dilemma, Couples Retreat, Four Christmases and The Goods: The Don Ready Story.  His 2006 documentary, 13 or Bust, chronicles the attempt to perform 13 comedy shows in Manhattan in one night. 

    Byrne’s lack of ego and outstanding work ethic has helped him become one of today’s most respected comedians.
