Editorial Reviews

Steve Byrne has established himself as one of the premier stand-up comedians of his generation. In his second one hour special, Steve asks the universal question "Who are you?" The result is a poignant, inventive, and immensely funny look at how we identify ourselves in America.

This is one of the best comedy specials I have ever seen. It will blow you away. I'm getting the DVD because I have seen him live and I know he has tons of other material that wasn't even aired! If you like to laugh, buy this DVD!

I've never met Steve Byrne, but from what I've seen of him, he comes across as a genuinely nice guy. In my book, that's worth a lot of points. Steve's WTF Podcast interview alone was additional fuel for me to keep rooting for his success. Steve has spoken about how he wanted to step away from the frenetic physical comedy that he did in his previous special in deference to doing more spoken material, and The Byrne Identity definitely has that. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments, but this special does not meet its full potential. The risks that Byrne takes are misplaced in jokes about racial stereotypes, which produces a shocked response at times, but even these risks are somewhat safe, as this kind of ground is well-tread. A lot of the material is safe and therefore comes across as pandering, as if the comedian was thinking, "this sounds like something they'll laugh at," rather than material that gives the viewer an idea of what the Byrne Identity actually is. Also, there were places during the show where Steve's timing is rushed, and rather than building tension in the audience (letting them out and then reeeeeling them back in), he rushes to the punch line, giving him the appearance of being overeager for the laugh.

However, where Steve gets personal with his material and the timing isn't rushed, (So as not to give punch lines away, The iTunes bit and the Chinatown bit were great)it works very well and is very funny. Steve has great tags, is visually entertaining to watch, and knows when to escalate a punch line. The Byrne Identity is funny and shows Steve's evolution as a comic. However, beyond being half Korean and half Irish, I'm still not 100% sure yet just who Steve Byrne is. I look forward to his next special and wish him all of the success in the world.

I'm just going to come right out and say it: I'm cheap. I will stalk ebay so I can buy a movie for a dollar. I will rummage through boxes at yard sales and haggle to get ten dvds for the price of a cheeseburger. I will slip movies into my purse at the homes of my friends and return them a week later. I have never paid full price for a dvd...

Until now.

I've seen Steve live a couple times and he has always put on an incredible show (at one of them, I even got to be part of the act. For those who have purchased the dvd, I got to be the lucky lady for the last part. For those who haven't, well... now you have to buy it to get in on the secret. Trust me, it's hilarious). After I caught part of his special on Comedy Central, I knew my purchase would be well worth it. There's some hilarious stuff that didn't make it onto TV, so if you're on the fence about buying this: fear not, it is worth every penny.

Steve is observant, intelligent, and witty. This is especially showcased on this DVD. He takes some of today's relevant issues and puts a comedic spin on them, making the material on this DVD something a good humored audience can identify with.

Buy the dvd. You won't regret it!

I absolutely LOVE this DVD special! I'm confused at the review with a single star?! Come on now, lighten up, GEEZ!!! You watch stand up to unwind and laugh about life. He's definitely become my new favorite comedian.

I had seen it on Comedy Central and the dvd was even better. I can't and won't say anything bad about it. I would recommend The Byrne Identity to anyone and everyone.

I picked up The Byrne Identity after seeing Byrne's earlier Comedy Central special, and I was not disappointed. He tackles many great social issues without going overboard with swearing. There is some graphic details, but you end up laughing enough to cover it up. A great stand-up set from the guy behind Sullivan & Son.

Steve Byrne is an incredible comedian. Not many comedians can keep me rolling on the floor laughing, but he manages to do it for me.
