Stand-up comedian Byron Bowers had a crushing set on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert Friday night. In his set, Bowers explains the hardest part about having a father with schizophrenia, how being a black supremecist in 2019 is like being on the Titanic, and gives a tip on how to stay safe around racist cops.
Bowers grew up in Atlanta Georgia and moved to Los Angeles and made his late night debut with a power set on the now dearly departed Pete Holmes Show, and has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central’s The Meltdown, and Adam Devine’s House Party before making his Late Show debut last night. You’ve also seen him on The Eric Andre Show, Why? With Hannibal Buress, MTV’s Guy Code, and on Showtime series The Chi. Colbert said you’ll see him later this year in Shia LaBeouf’s biopic Honey Boy.
He’s toured with Dave Chappelle, Hannibal Buress, John Caparulo, and The Eric Andre Show Live, and L.A. Weekly named Bowers a “Comedy Act to Watch.”
