Starting his career in the vibrant San Francisco comedy scene, Grant Lyon has been described by San Francisco Weekly as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers.”  

A former collegiate soccer player, Grant decided to pursue a career on stage instead of on the field.  In 2014, he won the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival beating out comedians from all over the country, and was chosen as a New Face in comedy at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.  As well as performing in a number of other prestigious comedy festivals including The Great American Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Grant has worked with a wide array of notable comedians including Dave Chappelle, Robin Williams, Daniel Tosh, Nikki Glaser, Anthony Jeselnik, and Patton Oswalt.  He has also performed on the TV show Comics Unleashed and can be heard regularly on Sirius/XM satellite radio.

As well as being a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, the short film he wrote and starred in, Interview Date, was eligible for a short film Academy Award in 2013.  Funny or Die, MSN, and Huffington Post are among the sites that have featured Grant’s sketch videos on their home pages.  You might also recognize Grant from a number of national commercials including AT&T, Johnsonville Sausage, CiCi’s Pizza, and more.
