The bracing comedic genius that made TBS's Sullivan & Son "the next great adult sitcom" -- Steve Byrne -- mounts the stand-up stage once more. Before creating the hit sitcom, Byrne had released two hit hour-long stand-up specials on Comedy Central, toured as part of Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Tour and performed stand-up on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!,The Late Late Show and BET's Comic View. Recently, he released his third one-hour standup comedy special, Champion, on Netflix, bringing his high-energy style and unique takes on dating, growing up Irish-Korean and the difference between male and female exotic dancers (hint: it's all in the hips) to a whole new audience. See him live at The American Comedy Co.

Brandon T. Jackson is a multifaceted young actor carving his own path in Hollywood. Earning critical praise at every step, he started out in stand-up and has evolved into a burgeoning young film star. This past winter Fox studio’s released the third incarnation of the highly profitable Big Momma’s House franchise. Jackson starred opposite Martin Lawrence as the two went undercover to solve a murder. In 2010, Jackson starred in Lottery Ticke” for Warner Bros. The action-comedy surrounds a group of friends living in the projects. After winning the lottery, they must find a way to survive a holiday weekend before they can cash in the winning ticket. Also in 2010 Jackson co-starred in the FOX box office hit Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. He received rave reviews for his role as the satyr Grover Underwood, the best friend and protector of Percy Jackson.
Jackson is perhaps best known as Alpha Chino from the high-concept runaway hit Tropic Thunder. The ensemble cast also included Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. and Jack Black. The role earned Jackson a Best Supporting Actor nomination from the Black Reel Awards and _Daily Variety _named him one of “10 Comics to Watch.”
Jackson won Black Reel’s 2006 Best Breakthrough Performance award for his part in Roll Bounce for FOX Searchlight. Jackson’s talent for entertaining was apparent early on. By the age of 14, he was performing at his father’s church and was soon invited to perform at the famed Showtime at the Apollo and BET’s Comic View.
From there, Jackson and BET launched the “Teens of Comedy Tour,” showcasing the nation’s funniest teen comedians. He also hosted the “Up Close and Personal Tour,” featuring Chris Brown, Ne-Yo and Lil Wayne. Jackson would later host his own sketch comedy special, The Brandon T. Jackson Show, on The N Channel and was a series regular on Nick Cannon’s MTV sketch comedy show Wild ‘N’ Out.
Jackson grew up in Detroit with seven siblings and parents who were both pastors. He credits his sense of humor to both his father and his life straddling the fence between suburbia and the inner city. He now lives in Los Angeles.
