Brian Regan Biography

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.

Brian's standard of excellence was set from the beginning. Watching such masters as Johnny Carson, The Smothers Brothers and Steve Martin, Brian was enthralled with the world of comedy and tried stand-up right out of college at a Ft. Lauderdale club an hour from his hometown of Miami. Touring the country constantly through the late 80's and 90's Brian won the 1996 American Comedy Award for Best Comedian, starred in two Showtime specials and performed on all the leading late night shows, including his life-long dream, "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson."

With his first appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and has returned at least once each year since to visit Dave. He now includes regular visits to "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" on his schedule.

A dorm room favorite, Brian's 1997 CD, "Brian Regan Live," has sold over 100,000 copies and consistently charts in iTunes Top Ten Comedy Albums. Brian's 2000 "Comedy Central Presents" special continues to be a viewer favorite and all of the energy of an entire Brian Regan live performance is captured on the 2004 DVD, "I Walked on the Moon," which is available through Brian's website.

Through prolific writing and tireless touring, Brian is the rare comedian to make the leap from comedy clubs to theaters without the exposure of his own TV show or film. 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 2005, Brian toured theaters in 40 cities, expanding to 70 cities in 2006 and he will top himself once again in 2007.

A perfect pairing of comedic excellence, Comedy Central has aligned with Brian in a rare multi-platform deal embracing him as a premier comedian of the network. The deal includes two one-hour stand-up specials, release of the specials on DVD, development of his own show for the network, and the 2007-2008 theater tour, "Brian Regan in Concert: A Comedy Central Live Event," which will run through the spring of 2008.

Brian's first one-hour special, "Brian Regan: Standing Up," premiered on Comedy Central on June 10, 2007 and was recorded in April at The Barclay Theater in Irvine, CA. The "Brian Regan: Standing Up" DVD was released on August 14 from Comedy Central Home Entertainment.

Brian Regan jokes, Quotes & One Liners

I’m lookin’ at the Pop-Tarts box and I notice they have directions on there. I give up on this species… They have toaster directions, which, I’m not makin’ this up, the toaster directions are longer than one step. I don’t know how that’s possible that the directions are longer than one. You think it would be, “Step one: Toast the Pop-Tarts. Go ahead, toast ‘em. It’s okay. Hey, are you still readin’ this?”

You ever say a phrase you say all the time at the wrong time, feel like a complete idiot? Something like, 'You, too. You, too.' I was getting out of the cab at the airport, and the driver goes, 'Hey, have a nice flight.' 'You, too. You, too. You have a nice flight, too -- in case you ever fly some day.'

So my eye doctor told me this. He said, “Did you know you have one eye set higher than the other eye?” “No” “It’s no big deal. It doesn’t affect your vision or anything. I just thought you’d like to be self conscious for the rest of your life.”

They always say that Albert Einstein was a genius. Then how come when anyone ever calls you that, it's an insult? 'You don't know where you parked the car? Good job, Einstein.' I don't think we're honoring that man properly by using his name in vain in parking lots.

You can microwave a Pop Tart. That just blew me away that you could do that. How long does it take to toast a Pop Tart? A minute and a half if you want it dark? People don't have that kind of time? Listen, if you need to zap-fry your Pop Tarts before you head out the door, you might want to loosen up your schedule.

Politicians have a lot to deal with these days. It's a different world. You know who I feel bad for? Arab Americans who truly want to get into crop dusting. Could be their life long dream, and every time they ask for a pamphlet, all hell breaks loose.

In a store I saw that Peanut Butter and jelly in the same jar stuff. What’s the point to that? I’m lazy but… I want to meet the guy who needs that. “I could go for a sandwich, but I’m not gonna open two jars.”
