Kyle Shire was raised in Des Plaines, IL a suburb of Chicago, and home to the first McDonalds. It was the perfect place for a ponderous, persnickety, proto-gay to develop a dark sense of humor.
Kyle studied improv and comedy at The Piven Theater Workshop, Second City, and Columbia College Chicago as a TV writing major. During his senior year he co-created the sitcom Debbie's Got Class, which was nominated for a Midwest Emmy.
Fast forward seven years and Kyle is the co-creator and co-host of the hetero-adjacent variety show Cobra Juice at the Steve Allen Theater. He has toured with the Comedy's Best Kept Secret Tour,and is a featured performer for RSVP Cruises. Recently he's been working closely with SNL and Mad TV alum Jeff Richards as one of his very gay back-up dancers for his new album The Shingles.
Kyle's comedy is rooted in playing with people's perceptions of masculinity and homosexuality and trying to make the word "gooch" part of the normal American vernacular.
