Razor sharp, deadly funny, and knows how to share a stage... Brian's genius is in knowing how to help you bring on the laughs! It's a rare thing when "hilarious" and "generous" describe the same comic, but here, it fits! We had Brian as one of our earliest headliners back in 2015. The audience loved him. We had a great time that night!
