Comedian Kyle Shire was raised in Chicago, IL and now based out of LA, where he is pursuing his dream of being a national touring comedian/homosexual superweapon.

At 6'5'', 250lbs, Kyle Shire is larger than life both physically and stylistically. His loud, high energy, irreverent, rant based, comedy is like if Paul Lynde and Lewis Black had an angry, hairy baby and made it watch anime for 28 years.

Juxtaposing a gruff voice, nerdy references, and a sassy flourish, Kyle revels in playing with stereotypes and audience expectations. With eight years of experience, Kyle has worked with comedians such as Margaret Cho, Marc Maron, Dave Foley, and Kyle Kinane.

Kyle also hosts and commentates for Machinima's Inside eSports as well as acting and doing voice over work. His monthly variety show Cobra Juice has been at the Steve Allen Theater for over 3 years.
