HEATH HYCHE’s stand-up is a non-stop ride through time with the cavalcade of characters that reside in his head. Using original handmade props and scenery that bring each character to life, Hyche’s high-energy sketch comedy is one of a kind. With JAMES P.

A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Heath Hyche was bitten by the acting bug when he wore a giant orange costume as his high school's mascot.
In college, Heath won Auburn University's title of "The Funniest Person on Campus". He went on to perform at an open-mic audition at the Birmingham Comedy Club which launched his career into stand-up comedy.
As a green Southern comic, Heath headed to Hollywood and was discovered by an agent while performing at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles. The next week he was auditioning for female comedy legend, Roseanne Barr. She cast him in her Saturday Night Special show on the spot and Heath has been working in television, film and comedy every since.
Heath has toured internationally as a comedy headliner and has opened for entertainment greats such as Michael Bublè, Ray Charles, Wynonna Judd, and Brooks and Dunn.
Hundreds of families write fan mail for his unique, show-stopping work as a headlining act for Disney Cruise Lines' world-class entertainment offerings.

As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
