Grant Lyon is a comedian, actor, and writer based in Los Angeles. He was on the path to becoming a professional soccer player, but he quit his college soccer team to focus on performing and now regularly tours the country as a professional stand-up comic. In 2008, he won the Colorado Mile High Comedy Competition that included comedians from all over the country and he was called a “Performer to Watch” at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival in North Carolina. He has written for a local TV show, Fondle the Fear. San Francisco Weekly describes Grant as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers.” He is a practitioner of sophisticated immaturity, blending intelligent wit with pure silliness. Grant is also a highly trained actor and improviser and has appeared in many film projects, including the award winning short films Expecting and Three Moves. But most important of all, Grant loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
