Feature Comedian
Brent Blakeney

Hard work has paid off with Brent having the opportunity to work with, and learn from, some of the best in the business. Brent has worked with stars such as Bobby Lee (Mad TV) and Tom Green (The Tom Green Show), as well as legendary comedians Don “DC” Curry, Bill Burr, Josh Blue, and Brian Regan. He isn’t sure if it isworth anything, but he has even been in the same room as Kevin Hart. And not in a big theater, but a 400 person comedy club. So Kevin might have looked at him at one point, as Brent is kind of hard to miss in a crowd seeing as how he is 6ft 7in tall….

Drawing from the inspirations of comedians such as Brian Regan, Daniel Tosh, Sinbad, Patton Oswalt, Louis C.K., and others; Brentstrives to offer an intelligent and well paced comedic experience that is appropriate for all audiences.
