Brian Regan

One of the most respected comedians in the country, Brian Regan is a legendary performer selling out theaters from coast to coast and earning praise from the press, the public, and fellow comedians:

“He is one of my favorite, favorite stand-up comedians.” - Jerry Seinfeld
“Honestly, Brian Regan’s the best stand-up working today. Period.” – Patton Oswalt
There’s Brian Regan and then there’s other people.” – Marc Maron
I'll take all of that guy you got...Very funny man" – David Letterman

With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Regan solidified his place on the show and recently made his 26th appearance.

Since his beginnings in comedy, riding Greyhound buses from comedy club to comedy club, Regan always brought new material when returning to a city; and the fans would return again and again to see what new insights Regan would uncover. It is this prolific ability that has grown Regan’s fan base in to a non-stop theater tour visiting close to 100 cities each year since 2005 and continuing through 2014.

Regan occasionally ventures off the stand-up stage; he recently appeared in Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, will be seen in the upcoming Chris Rock movie Finally Famous but his main focus is stand-up comedy. In fact, last August, Regan sold out the legendary, 8600-seat Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, and in February ‘14, Regan performed two sold-out shows at the 12,500-seat Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City.
