In just a few short years, Steve Byrne has risen through the ranks of the comedy world to become one of the industrys 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, which continues to provide him with an inordinate wealth of comedic material. Byrnes most recent hour special, The Byrne Identity, premiered last year on Comedy Central to rave reviews.
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 NBCs The Tonight Show, ABCs Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBSs The Late Late Show and BETs Comic View. In 2008, Byrnes first one-hour special, Steve Byrnes Happy Hour, premiered on Comedy Central and further cemented his star status. Packing an impressively wide range of appeal, Byrnes comedy soon landed him on the The History of the Joke on the History Channel and the Discovery Channels The Science of Laughter. He has since appeared on some of TVs hottest shows including ABCs The Middle, The Chapelle Show, G4s The International Sexy Ladies Show, The Howard Stern Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, The Very Funny Show and was a series regular on NBCs The Real Wedding Crashers.
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), HBOs 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 Vaughns Wild West Comedy Tour (most recently with Vince Vaughn & Kevin James to promote The Dilemma), The Kims of Comedy, The New Majority Tour with Russell Peters, Gabriel Iglesias & Lisa Lampanelli, 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.
Steve Byrne spent the early part of 2018 directing a documentary about Las Vegas headliner, magician and comedian The Amazing Johnathan, entitled "Always Amazing". The documentary won best documentary film at the Sydney Lift Off Festival, Special Mention at Los Angeles Lift Off Festival, and was screened at Hollywood Now Festival, All Things Comedy Festival and Vancouver Just for Laughs Film Festival. Always Amazing will be released in 2019.
From 2017-2018 Byrne had been writing a script while on the road about his early years in stand up comedy. That film eventually got the green light and Steve Byrne wrote and directed his first feature film, The Opening Act, starring Jimmy O Yang, Alex Moffat and Cedric the Entertainer. The film will be released in 2019.
Byrnes lack of ego and outstanding work ethic has helped him become one of todays most respected comedians.
