San Francisco Weekly describes Grant Lyon as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers.” Born in Los Angeles, taken to Chicago for middle school, high school in Sacramento, college in Santa Cruz, Grant has been around. He is a practitioner of sophisticated immaturity - his comedy blends intelligent wit with pure silliness all while maintaining a relaxed surfer-dude personality. A history major in college, his infatuation with this nation’s past and present stand out throughout his show.
A former collegiate soccer player with UC Santa Cruz, Grant decided to pursue a career on stage instead of on the field. He was a featured performer at the Asheville Comedy Festival, winner of the Colorado Mile High Comedy Competition, finished 2nd in the Ice House Comedy Competition, appeared in the prestigious San Francisco Comedy Competition, and has opened for names like Bobby Lee and Robin Williams. He is a member of the sketch comedy group Four In The Back, performs improv regularly, and is an accomplished actor. His comedy is clever and honest, a unique combination of social commentary and ridiculous observations.
"One of the most original comedians on the scene, not only will he make you laugh, you might learn something." - Dave Testroet, Producer of the Colorado Mile High Comedy Competition
"In a sea of 'wannabe' street comics and childish toilet humor salesman, it's nice to see someone who is striving to be clever and honest and original." - Johnny Steele, Former Host of Live 105!
"Your stuff was bright and clean and a lot of fun. You were a pleasure to work with and I hope we get to work together again soon." Will Durst, America's Top Political Satirist
