Thanks for stopping by and being curious about me. You've made a wise choice as I am very interesting and lovable!
My name is Sovereign Syre ( I know you're wondering what kind of name that is. It's a made up one.) I'm a stand up comedian and writer, an internationally published poet (not a joke), a podcast artist (totally a joke) and an occasional model. I've also starred in several controversial films.
My career started in 2009 when I moved to NYC to work as a model. I have been fortunate enough to be photographed by master photographers Andrew Einhorn, George Pitts, Ken Lichtenwalter, Keith Major, Richard Avery, Ken Penn, and Nathan Appel.
In 2011 I was scouted by a porn director named Nica Noelle and lured to Los Angeles to make a new thing that was emerging called "feminist porn." I starred in over 150 adult movies, almost exclusively in the girl on girl genre. I was very good at this job and was even nominated as All Girl Performer of the year by AVN in 2014.
I actually went to school to be a writer and have some useless but spiffy humanities degrees. I've had my poems published internationally and I'm the creator/writer/star of Boss Bitches of History on the Wisecrack Channel on YouTube and I also write a weekly column for The Filthy. I'm currently editing one novel and writing another because I like to keep busy.
I am now mainly a standup comedian and podcaster. I've performed at The World Famous Comedy Store, The Ice House, The Stand, New York Comedy Club, The Funny Bone, Dangerfield's and tons of bars and alternative venues. I've opened for Marc Maron and feautured for Big Jay Oakerson too! I co-host (along with the amazing Kyle Shire) a monthly variety show out of the Steve Allen Theater in Los Angeles called Cobra Juice. Our show boasts one of the most consistently diverse lineups in Los Angeles and performances range from standups to sword swallowers (and sometimes even women). I am very proud of what we do.
For nearly two years I've been the host of a weekly podcast, OBSERVATIONS with Sovereign Syre, where I ask comedians to get serious about everything from themselves to the world economy.
