Steven He O’Byrne was born on December 31st, 1996, in Shenzhen, China. He has an interesting family heritage because he is half-Chinese and half-Irish. At the age of just 8 years old, Steven and his family moved to Ireland.
From that point forward, his family continued to back and forth between both countries throughout Steven’s childhood. Upon entering his youth, Steven found his true passion which was acting.
Later, he began spending time learning about the arts to become a full-time actor. After graduating from high school in Ireland, Steven moved to London, England, to obtain his bachelor’s degree from the Regent’s University London.
Steven began his career by participating in acting, film, and television, as well as theater, stage combat, and Sheksparean courses while attending Regent University. After graduating from the field of acting and global theater program, he went on to find an acting gig.

From there, he moved on to the Park Theater where he landed a supporting role in a production of Dover Road. He followed that up by performing the leading role at the Edinburgh Festival.

After appearing in a handful of TV shows, Steven began focusing on creating more content for his YouTube channel. He started by writing ten jokes a day and destroying nine of them.
Steven believes that a lot of his early work was an absolute waste. So, after spending countless hours observing other comedy channels and learning from them, his content began to take on a life of its own.
Steven finally earned 1 million views on his 120th TikTok video. He created a follow-up video in the same vein that became even more widely watched with 2 million views. After creating more than 220 videos on TikTok and YouTube, he eventually bought himself a more professional camera to record sketches.
