First of his name...

Comedian Kyle Shire was raised in Des Plaines, IL a suburb of Chicago. While his mother worked nights as an emergency room nurse, he was loosely supervised by his older sisters who let him watch anything on TV as long he didn't bother them. Kyle would stay up late watching reruns of Saturday Night LiveMad TV, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, and any John Waters movie he could get his hands on. When his mother would come home from work the next morning, Kyle would reenact his favorite scenes and sketches prompting his mother to either laugh or recoil in horror. Here was where Kyle's love for comedy and acting began.

Kyle studied at The Piven Theater Workshop and Second City as a teenager before moving on to Columbia College Chicago as a Television Writing and Producing major. Kyle became an actor and a writer on Columbia's sketch comedy TV show Out on a Limb for four wonderful years. During his senior year he was selected to write and produce the practicum level sitcom course, where he and writer Libby Thomas created the sitcom Debbie's Got ClassDebbie's Got Class went on to be nominated for a Midwest Emmy and took 1st Place for Student Submissions at the New York Film Festival in 2009. 

After graduating in 2009, Kyle moved to LA to pursue comedy, eventually branching out into stand up. Now Kyle hosts and produces Nick and Kyle's Cobra Juice: A Variety Show Spectacle at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood. He is a regular at Flappers Burbank and he can be regularly seen pussyfooting about LA's vast stand up scene.
