to provide him with an inordinate wealth of comedic material. Byrne's most recent hour special, "The Byrne Identity," premiered in 2010 on Comedy Central to rave reviews.

After winning TBS's cutthroat competition, the Myspace Standup or Sitdown Comedy Challenge, Byrne was hurtled into a promising 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 shows such as 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."

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 (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.

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