In 2013, at 31 years old Tyrone Burston decided to become a professional comedia. Tyrone was born and raised in Hartford CT and currently resides in Charlotte, NC. Tyrone enrolled in the Charlotte Comedy Zone School on July 29th, 2013 and graduated on September 23rd, 2013. Tyrone is widely considered one of the up and coming stars in stand up comedy.
Since graduating, Tyrone has hosted, featured and headlined numerous shows. On December 8th 2013, he auditioned for Don DC Curry’s reality TV show in Charlotte North Carolina. After the audition, Don DC Curry told Tyrone that he really liked his demeanor and that he would be in touch. In 2014, he opened up for Comedian Bruce Bruce, and in 2015, he performed at the Queen City Awards. In 2016, he opened up for The Queen Of Comedy Adele Givens, and Joe Torry. This rising star was awarded Queen City’s Comedian Of The Year in 2016 for his standup comedic efforts for 2015. He is also apart of a local improv group called “Chat & Chew With a View” where he performs improv as well as standup comedy. Tyrone has appeared in a short film entitled “Call Sinner” and he can be seen in another short entitled “Slanging Birds”.
I am super pumped to have Tyrone as my guest this week, because he is quickly becoming one of my favorite comics to watch on stage. For me he is one of the fastest and most improved comics in Charlotte in the past year. Your not gonna want to miss this as we sit and talk about his life back in Hartford, CT and what got him started in comedy.
