Why See Brian Regan?

Live comedy for all tastes and ages

Critics and peers agree, Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The "perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality" (Wall Street Journal), Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations. His clean language and sharp, sarcastic obersations on everyday life have led him to be known as the "comedian's comedian". Brian Regan hits the Merriam Theater in Philadelphia , PA , Closed May 7, 2016


Brian's first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995 solidified his place on the show and in 2012 he made his 25th appearance - the most of any comedian on the CBS show to date.

Brian has starred in two hour-long Comedy Central specials and released three DVDs and two CDs. His non-stop theater engagements have visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005; in August 2013 Brian sold out the 8600-seat Red Rocks Amphitheater outside Denver.


His humor is based around sarcastic and self-deprecation that creates comedy gold from everyday situations, whether it be buying a refrigerator, his frequent visits to the optometrist, talking about weird crimes or commenting on visiting New York City. His frequent references to childhood, including little league baseball, grade school spelling bees, and science projects strike a chord with a vast audience range. Whilst keeping his language relatively clean and staying clear of insult comedy, he channels the greats like Steve Martin and Johnny Carson, making his shows something that you can repeat to your kids and your boss without fear!
