A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Heath Hyche started acting when he wore a giant orange costume as his high school’s mascot, even though the school’s nickname was the Vikings. His first big break came when he was at Auburn University and won “The Funniest Person on Campus” contest. From there Hyche performed at an open-mic audition at the Birmingham Comedy Club and has been a working Stand-Up ever since.
After being discovered by an agent during a gig at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, his first television role was on Roseanne’s Saturday Night Special. The neophyte found himself auditioning for the female comedy legend, who cast him on the show. Soon, Hyche was back in Alabama, preparing for a cross-country drive and trying to figure out what a “table-read” is. Other credits include an appearance on Two Guys and A Girl, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and These Old Broads, with Shirley MacLaine, Joan Collins, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Jonathan Silverman. He was a regular on Style and Substance, with Jean Smart and Nancy McKeon. Recent pilots include Jack’s House and a leading role in Mark of Greatness. He just finished two seasons on Blue Collar TV alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, and Bill Engvall.
On the big screen Hyche appeared in the films Man on the Moon and The Odd Couple II.
Hyche is single and lives in Los Angeles, where he enjoys working the local stand up circuit. He is a self-proclaimed video game junkie and Star Wars geek.
