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 made a name for himself as an extremely versatile entertainer. 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. Byrne's 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 NBC's The Tonight Show, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS's The Late Late Show and BET's Comic View.
