Born in Bothell, Washington on September 19, 1977, Kyle Cease is one of the biggest rising stars in the world of comedy. While still staying in Seattle, Washington, he starred in the 1999 film 10 Things I Hate About You, which stars Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger; there, he played aspiring MBA Bogie Lowenstein. He then moved to Los Angeles, where he resumed his career; he became the featured comedian in an episode of the comedy program The Martin Short Show. In 2001, he appeared in the film Not Another Teen Movie, as the “slow clapper.” He has since also appeared in the 2003 film Oh So Twisted and the 2005 film The Hand Job.
Cease is, however, more popular for his stand-up comedy. He started touring early in his life, and by age 21, he has already won the International Giggles Comedy Competition. He was also a finalist at the Seattle International Comedy Competition. He was asked to do a Comedy Central Presents special in 2006; its success led to him being asked to do a one-hour special on the same channel. The result, Kyle Cease: Weirder. Blacker. Dimpler. which he also produced, was a big success. It also further introduced the world to his laugh-out-loud, stream-of-consciousness style of comedy, parodying everything from pirates to the Pillsbury Doughboy.
Cease has released a comedy album, Wait Your Turn, in 2001. His DVD, One Dimple, which contained commentary and stories from his sell-out stand-up tour, was also a hot seller among Comedy Central releases. Cease has also appeared in two reality shows. In 2006, he was a participant in NBC’s Last Comic Standing, although he wasn’t invited for the season’s second round. He is also slated to appear in the Comedy Central reality competition program Reality Bites Back, which premieres in 2008.
