A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Heath Hyche was bitten by the acting bug 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 working standup 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 Collings, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, and Jonathan Silverman. He was a regular on Style and Substance with Jean Smart and Nancy McKeon. Recently, he starred as a series regular in the WB series Blue Collar TV.
Hyche is single and lives in Los Angeles, where he collects toys from his childhood, including Star Wars memorabilia.
