Comedian Byron Bowers was born and raised in a lower-middle class neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. But here’s where it gets funny: The Atlanta School Board saw fit to bus him into the more affluent, whiter suburbs for his schooling. Thus began an inadvertent social experiment that bore comedic fruit. Byron’s experiences directly informs his comedy – crisscrossing a multicultural socioeconomic landscape with the insight of a hip hop prodigy, the punch of a mixed martial artist, and the charm that one would expect from a proper southern gentleman.
Byron moved to Los Angeles in 2008 where he has pursued not only his comedy, but his love of exotic sports cars and nature. (He really does enjoy long walks on the beach). The trans-continental relocation has added to his cultural insight and helped him spread his appeal far and wide. (Now he knows what’s funny not just about Black and White people, but Gays and Mexicans too)
Byron appears regularly at The Comedy Store, The Comedy and Magic Club, The Hollywood Improv, The Nerdist Theater, and Holy F#ck. He won the Uncle Clyde’s Comedy and the Ultimate Laff-Down XVI Competitions, and was a Boston Comedy Festival Semi-Finalist. He has appeared on the Eric Andre Show on Adult Swim, Comcast TV, and Comedy Central.
