Very likeable, sardonic, and with enough great lines to make other comics jealous.....Rhys James


A delightful host. Lyle's golden comedy, more like.....Ivo Graham


Warm, engaging, charming, funny. Nice hair too.....Ahir Shah


Lyle is an amazing act and MC. With relatable and self deprecating wit, he leaves you not knowing what he's going to say next. Highly recommended......Full Frontal Comedy
