One-man show features lots of characters.

Comedian Heath Hyche bills himself as a "one-man, high-energy, sketch-comedy show." His narrative-heavy bits feature multiple characters — all portrayed by the manic comic. Routines are often set at places like a college bowl game or during a World War II dogfight over the Pacific. But Hyche doesn't think of his characters as impressions. "I don't really do that," he says. "I'd rather do something brand new."

Even Hyche's Elvis impersonator, Kevin, isn't your typical King. Hyche's comes with an ex-wife who runs his light show 50 feet from the stage. "That is the exact distance she has to keep from him at all times," he says. Hyche says he's also a bit of a control freak — something that stems from his days at Auburn University, when he wanted to be a film director. "I even run all of my own music cues from the stage," he says.
