Michael Colyar: One of the true legends of comedy, Michael Colyar has done just about everything there is to do in the entertainment business. As performed during weekends on the Boardwalk of Venice Beach, CA (an event that occurred for over a decade, five times a day, every Saturday and Sunday which prompted many to tag Colyar "The King of Venice Beach", Colyar's schtick transcended demographical barriers by appealing to those of all ages, ethnicities, and personal backgrounds. Colyar scored his on-camera breakthrough in 1990, when he won the standup competition on "Star Search" reeling in $100,000 in the process. He also made headlines for altruistically taking half of the money he won on that program and donating it to Los Angeles area charities. He had also diversified by moving into film roles, frequently though not always in a humorous vein. Early assignments included small supporting roles in the comedies Hollywood Shuffle (1987), Johnny Be Good (1988), and HouseParty3 (1994), and the dramas What's Love Got to Do With It? (1993) and Poetic Justice (1993). In 1999, Colyar also signed on as the host and emcee of his own cable talk show, BET Live from L.A. We are excited and honored to have the legendary Michael Colyar headline Daunte Burks' Funny Friday Comedy Show!
