Tyler Boeh is professionally funny. His fresh comedy style exposes his life as a bus-riding urbanite with friends that are way too into hip-hop. He tries hard to be hip, but just can’t get it right. He is still suffering from an inability to defend himself as a child: “You remember the 98 pound weakling when you were a kid? Well that’s the guy that was taking my lunch money.”
But being an underdog with a lazy eye as a kid has been perfect fodder for his comedy. Tyler says he doesn't understand the point of an HDTV when, "I don't even have high definition eyes!" He started performing stand-up in Portland, OR and he proved himself as a young but formidable comedian by taking 2nd place in the Portland Comedy Competition and winning the Oregon International Comedy Competition just a few short months into his comedy career with his fast paced, shotgun delivery.
In 2006 he was a finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition. Shortly following the competition, Boeh was featured in an article in Horizon Air Magazine about how comedians don’t have to move away from the Northwest to have a successful career in comedy. By the time the article was published, he had already moved away… to Boston.
He quickly became a favorite on the Boston scene and continued to work the road and participate in comedy festivals. He took third place in the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition and has also been a semi-finalist twice in the Boston Comedy Festival. He has been featured on NESN’s "Comedy All-Stars", Comcast "Comedy Spotlight" and The Comedy Time Network.
When Tyler had had enough of New England’s winters, he made another cross-country move and rapidly established himself at the top clubs in Hollywood. With a background in improv and a love for writing, Boeh is finding his place in Hollywood, and was recently cast in a leading role in the pilot, "Galaxy of Comics."
Tyler's comedy has been described as high-energy, intelligent, physical, and silly with a balance of west coast charm and east coast attitude. His quick wit and award winning “beatboxing” talent bring audiences to hysterical heights. He performs across the country from Portland, OR to Portland, ME, in colleges, clubs, theaters and private events, but whether he is on the small stage of an intimate comedy club or a large theater, Tyler is comfortable, confident, and hilarious.
