Review for Brian Regan:

On Nov. 25, 2011, Brian’s highly anticipated second album, All By Myself, was released on CD available only through his website.  The live concert recording was originally released as a digital download in December 2010 only available through his website.  Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years - 2008’s The Epitome of Hyperbole, and 2007’s Brian Regan Standing Up - Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow.  The Epitome of Hyperbole has also been seen on CMT.

Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2013.  It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base.  In January of 2012 Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City with ten sold-out shows selling more than 26,000 tickets.  In March of 2010, Brian performed five sold-out shows at Abravanel Hall breaking the previous record of four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005. 

With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and this year he made his 25th appearance, the most of any comedian on the CBS show.  A dorm room favorite, Brian’s 1997 CD, Brian Regan Live, has sold over 150,000 copies and consistently charts in iTunes Top Ten Comedy Albums.  Brian’s 2000 Comedy Central Presents special continues to be a top viewer choice and Brian’s independently released 2004 DVD, I Walked on the Moon, is available at www.BrianRegan.com.

Tickets are $38.50 and are on sale now at LiveNation.com, www.ChattanoogaOnStage.com, www.etix.com, the Memorial Auditorium box office, or 642-TIXS or 757-5050 (day of show).
