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, Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations.
On November 25, Brian’s highly anticipated second album, “All By Myself,” was released on CD available only through his website. The live concert recording was originally released as a digital download in December 2010. Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years - 2008’s “The Epitome of Hyperbole,” and 2007’s “Brian Regan Standing Up” - Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow. “The Epitome of Hyperbole” made its CMT debut on March 9.
Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2012. 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. In March of 2010, Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City with five sold out performances; the previous record was four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005. In January 2012 Brian performed ten sold out shows at Abravanel Hall.
With his first appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and has now made more than 20 appearances. A dorm room favorite, Brian’s 1997 CD, “Brian Regan Live,” has sold over 150,000 copies and consistently charts in iTunes Top Ten Comedy Albums. Brian’s 2000 “Comedy Central Presents” special continues to be a top viewer choice and Brian’s independently released 2004 DVD, “I Walked on the Moon,” is available at http://www.BrianRegan.com.
