In 2015, Brian Regan made history with the first-ever live Comedy Central broadcast for his special “Brian Regan: Live from Radio City Music Hall.” Acclaimed by Vanity Fair as “The funniest standup alive,” Regan brings his laugh out loud comedy to the Lied Center for the first time on Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m.

Setting a comedic standard of excellence that others continually try to follow, on May 8, 2015, Regan made his 28th and final stand-up performance on “Late Show With David Letterman,” the most of any comic since the show moved to CBS in 1993.

Regan is a unique comedian whose material is relatable to generations of fans and revered by comedians as the best in the business. Said Jerry Seinfeld, “He is one of my favorite, favorite stand-up comedians.”

In 2014, Regan made a scene-stealing cameo in Chris Rock’s film, “Top Five,” and he was seen in Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” but it is stand-up comedy that is Regan’s focus visiting close to 100 cities each year and selling out some of the most beautiful venues on the continent.

Brian has released three hour-long TV specials, three CDs and four DVDs: “Brian Regan: Live From Radio City Music Hall” (2015) is airing on Comedy Central and is available on CD and DVD and as a video or audio download; “All By Myself” (2010) is available on CD and download only through his website; his two previous hour-long Comedy Central specials, “The Epitome of Hyperbole” (2008) and “Brian Regan Standing Up” (2007) are available on DVD; “I Walked on the Moon” (2004) is available on DVD or as an audio or video download only through his website; and “Brian Regan Live” (1997) is available on CD.
