Byron Allen was born on April 22, 1961 in Detroit, Michigan and grew up in Los Angeles, California where he graduated from Fairfax High School Allen's interest in show business began during his childhood, when he would accompany his mother to NBC studios in Burbank where she worked as a publicist. Free to roam the sound stages, Allen would sneak onto "The Tonight Show" set, sit behind Johnny Carson's desk and play talk show host. Allen put together a stand up routine and began performing at amateur nights in Los Angeles comedy clubs. Comedian Jimmie Walker saw Allen's stand-up act and was so impressed that he invited the 14 year-old comedian to join his comedy writing team alongside the young comedians Jay Leno and David Letterman. At age 18, Allen made his television debut on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson". Allen holds the distinction of being the youngest standup comedian ever to have performed on the show. In 1993 Allen got into television production when he founded Entertainment Studios and launched his first series, "Entertainers with Byron Allen", a weekly, one-hour series profiling the current stars of film and television. In 2009, Allen became the first television entrepreneur to own and launch a portfolio of six 24-hour HD television networks simultaneously. The six networks include Pets.TV, Comedy.TV, Recipe.TV, Cars.TV, ES.TV, and MyDestination.TV. Today, Byron's companies produce more than 30 nationally syndicated programs that according the The Hollywood Reporter bring in $100 million in revenue per year.
