He has also performed Stand-Up, Improv, and Sketch comedy at all the theaters listed above as well as many others, opening for comedians such as Bob Odenkirk, Anthony Jeselnik, and Amir K.

A LACHSA theatre student himself, he worked as an Intern at JASH, a comedy production company founded by Sarah Silverman, Reggie Watts, Michael Cera, comedy duo Tim and Eric, and producer Daniel Kellison. There he worked on a multitude of projects, including Norm Macdonald Live, a weekly podcast hosted by Norm Macdonald, the Comedy Central Series “The High Court”, and even assisted with the Emmy-Nominated special Sarah Silverman: A Speck of Dust.

When he’s not teaching at Lachsa, Kyle works as a programmer for the Slamdance Film Festival, as well as an assistant for The Kyle Dunnigan Show. He also continues to perform comedy around Los Angeles. His passions lie in satire and the ability for comedy to make poignant social progress through that end.
