One of the most respected comedians in the country, Regan is a legendary performer, selling out theaters from coast to coast and earning praise from the press, the public, and fellow comedians:
"He is one of my favorite, favorite stand-up comedians." - Jerry Seinfeld
"No comedian in the world says, 'Yeah, I want to follow Brian Regan.'" - Chris Rock
"Brian Regan is one of my favorite comics of all time, he's just the best... an absolute master." - Bill Burr
"Saw Brian Regan last night at the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara. In a word (or three) Simply the Best!" - Dennis Miller
"You're one of the rare guys that is universally respected by comics as being one of the most hilarious guys out there at stand-up." - Joe Rogan
"Honestly, Brian Regan's the best stand-up working today. Period." - Patton Oswalt
"You're the guy people look up to... Brian Regan's the funniest guy... there's Brian Regan and then there's other people." - Marc Maron
"I'll take all of that guy you got... Very funny man." - David Letterman
With his first stand-up appearance on the "Late Show with David Letterman" in 1995, Regan solidified his place on the show and made his twenty-eighth and final stand-up appearance on May 8, the most of any comedian since the show moved to CBS in 1993. Regan made a scene-stealing cameo in the latest Chris Rock 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. On September 5, 2015 Regan returned to the legendary 8600-seat Red Rocks Amphitheater and on March 18, 2016 he will return to the 12,500-seat EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City where he sold out two shows in 2014.
Regan's two hour-long TV specials, two CDs and three DVDs have set a standard of excellence: "All By Myself" (2010), is available on CD and download only through his website; his two 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 through his website and "Brian Regan Live" (1997) is available on CD.
