COMEDY CENTRAL ANNOUNCES THE DIGITAL RELEASE OF "BRIAN REGAN: LIVE FROM RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL" THE FIRST LIVE STAND-UP SPECIAL IN COMEDY CENTRAL(R) HISTORY ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27
NEW YORK, November 23, 2015 - Comedy Central announces the digital release of "Brian Regan: Live From Radio City Music Hall," the first live stand-up special in Comedy Central history, on Friday, November 27.
Filmed at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on September 26, "Brian Regan: Live From Radio City Music Hall" features Regan's high-energy and physical comedy as he looks back on his first jobs, watching women's curling and his attempts to use a juicer. During his special, Regan questions the concept of dancing, infinity pools and the illogical restaurant menu phrasings like "leg of lamb."
Regan and his manager, Rory Rosegarten, approached Comedy Central with the idea of a live show as a way to do something special for his third one-hour stand-up special with the network. Fans can follow Regan on Twitter at @BrianReganComic and can see more at BrianRegan.com.
The special will be available for download on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video, Sony Entertainment Network, Vudu, Verizon Flexview and Google Play and on CC: Stand-Up Direct on November 27. The digital album will also be available on that date on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, Spotify and all streaming services and the physical album and DVD will be available on Tuesday, February 16, 2016.
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, with Vanity Fair calling him, "The funniest stand-up alive." 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; he visits close to 100 cities each year and sells 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 Vivint Smart Home Arena (formerly EnergySolutions Arena) in Salt Lake City where he sold out two shows in 2014.
Regan's two previous one-hour 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 previous one-hour 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.
