Who? Kyle Grooms is originally from New Jersey but started his stand-up career on South Florida's urban comedy scene. Style is quick and clever, punchlines come after the beat, a little like Dave Attell but structured around stories like Birbiglia.

Where may I have seen him? Kyle has had his own half-hour on Comedy Central Presents. You may have also seen him on Last Comic Standing, VH1, or on Chappelle's Show telling John Mayer to shut the fuck up!
