Description: For the fans of podcasts, of secret shows, and of the back alleys of the internet, r/Standup is a live standup show starring the best comedians today's scene has to offer. This is where the outcasts become the cool kids and where unique is celebrated. r/Standup features the same comedians you'd see at a theater, but it's priced at just $10 so you can be a regular and never miss it. There's a pre-show bar mingle meetup for redditors, and most comics stay around after the show to hang. And every show features one awesome unannounced guest.
Steve Byrne: Steve Byrne is the star of the hit TBS half hour comedy Sullivan & Son. The show is based on Steve Sullivan (played by Byrne) leaving behind his life in New York as a successful corporate attorney to take over the family bar in a working-class Pittsburgh neighborhood. The first two seasons were a huge success averaging 2.4 million viewers an episode. The third season will appear on TBS in the summer of 2014.
Steve’s standup has been featured on several shows including NBC’s The Tonight Show, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, and TBS’s Conan. He has also appeared in the hit comedies The Dilemma, Couples Retreat, and Four Christmases. His 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), and he has been a part of several national comedy tours including Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Tour, The Kims Of Comedy, and most recently The Sullivan & Son Comedy Tour. As a big supporter of the US troops, Steve has headlined several USO tours in Afghanistan, Iraq, Japan and Guam.
Steve’s lack of ego and outstanding work ethic has helped him become one of today’s most respected comedians.
