When was the last time your accountant made you laugh? No, seriously. Brian Regan almost didn't become a comic. In college, Regan studied accounting and played football. Post-college, he worked his way up from (no, not "junior accountant" in a firm) a short order cook in a comedy club, to serving as emcee, and finally, one of the performers.
Inspired by Steve Martin, Regan took his act on the road in the 80s and was named Miller Lite's "Funniest Person in New York" in 1988.
Regan stood out then - and now - for his clean language and physical, theatrical approach to poking fun at some of life's most mundane situations (doctor's visits, the UPS man, Pop-tarts). His fan base grew exponentially as his clean show allowed entire families to attend - and laugh - together.
Regan hit pay dirt in the early 90's, appearing on "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" and starring in his first television special, "There's Something Wrong with that Regan Boy" (Showtime).
Non-stop touring has made Brian Regan a regular guest on "The Late Show with David Letterman." Regan also released two back-to-back, critically acclaimed Comedy Central specials: "Brian Regan: Standing Up" (2007) and "The Epitome of Hyperbole" (2008).
Brian Regan recently made his 20th appearance on "Letterman." His YouTube channel boasts fan comments like "Brian aggravates my TMJ in the best possible way." For a goofy jock who once pondered spending his life under fluorescent lights as an accountant, Brian Regan is laughing all the way to the bank.
