It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian Regan consistently fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations.
Brian Regan broke onto the mainstream stand-up scene in 1992 when he appeared on The A-List. The talented comedian soon earned his first televised special, Something's Wrong with the Regan Boy, in 1992. In 1995, Brian began appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman, which would continue throughout his career and would garner him significant exposure. Some moviegoers might remember when, in 1998, Regan began appearing in small comedy "vignettes" played in movie theaters as a part of Coca Cola's Concession Stand Up Comedy. Brian Regan also appeared as himself on the popular Comedy Central animated series Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist around the same time he released a cd of his stand-up, aptly titled Brian Regan Live.
A milestone for many comedians came for Brian in 2000 when he became one of the earlier stand-up comedians to be featured on Comedy Central Presents. In 2004, Brian performed his second televised stand up special, I Walked on the Moon at the Irvine Improv, which is still one of his most popular specials. Regan struck a huge deal with Comedy Central in 2007, part of which included the comedian performing two hour long, televised stand-up specials that would be released on DVD. The deal also included performing a stand-up theater tour, which began on June 8, 2007. The first televised performance was one of the first shows on the tour, and was titled Standing Up. The second special was filmed almost a year later, entitled Epitome of Hyperbole; both specials ended up selling considerably well. Brian Regan's latest album, All By Myself, was released in 2010 and is only available on his website through digital download.
Since his last release, Brian Regan has been extensively touring, and this year is no exception. Brian's currently on a 2011 tour that's headed through the southern United States in the first half of April. From the later half of April through June, Brian will be touring on the east coast, before jumping all around the United States on recently added 2011 tour dates. Brian's last scheduled show date for the tour will be on December 10 in New Brunswick, NJ.
