Stephen Lynch is a songwriter, comedian and Tony award-nominated actor. His songs are known for their haunting melodies, complex and Lord-pleasing chord structures and insightful lyrics, often exploring the universal themes of heartbreak, family strife, and forgetting one’s safeword during a particularly brutal S&M session.
Lynch has released four studio albums, four live albums and two concert specials, including Live at the El Rey in 2004 and his latest, Hello, Kalamazoo! in 2016. His most recent recording, the double live/studio album My Old Heart was released in summer of 2019 and reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Comedy charts.
As the result of the duality of his act, Lynch often plays venues more often suited to music than comedy, eventually graduating from the bars and VFW halls of the early days to locations such as Town Hall, Shepherd’s Bush Empire and the esteemed Carnegie Hall. He gained great national exposure with his Comedy Central Presents special in 2000, one of the highest rated in the network’s history. He has made appearances on Comedy central’s Premium Blend, The World Comedy Tour and The World Stands Up and has performed at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He starred in his second Comedy Central Presents in 2008.
Lion, Lynch’s first double live/studio recording was released in November, 2012. He toured the world behind that album with his band, consisting of Rod Cone, Charlie King and singer/songwriter Courtney Jaye. They would hone the act that would eventually make up 2016’s Hello, Kalamazoo! special.
In 2017 Lynch did a tour of the United States to test out the material that would end up on My Old Heart. In 2018 he recorded the album and embarked on two European tours. He is currently writing and recording his next album.
This show is suggested for ages 16 & over
