SPOTLIGHT: TYRONE BURSTON
A big part of being your Comedy Czar is pointing out some of the Charlotte comedians making a name for themselves. This week I am shining the spotlight on Tyrone Burston. He has been performing in Charlotte and the surrounding area for several years fighting and clawing his way up the ranks. That’s the only way to get it done. Now Burston is a staple in the Charlotte scene. He has performed with comedy greats like Arsenio Hall, Bruce Bruce, The African King of Comedy Michael Blackson and one of the Original Queens of Comedy Adele Givens, among others. In 2016, he was recognized by The Queen City Music Awards as Comedian Of The Year.
A native of Hartford, CT, Burston took Charlotte by storm from his very first show. His style is cool and unapologetic with charisma for days. His brand of humor is accessible to most audiences. He is one of the few comics who can thrive in any room. Burston’s jokes range from playful and self-deprecating to hard hitting. His humor focuses on himself, his life growing up in hard times, raising his own kids, and moving to the South. His honesty on stage is refreshing and easy to get behind. You won’t regret a night out with Tyrone Burston. You’ll thank him.
He regularly hosts and opens for headliners at The Comedy Zone Charlotte. You can catch him at clubs & venues throughout the Southeast and across the country.
