A Preview of “Brian Regan: Standing Up”

Filed Under Stand-Up Comedy

Brian Regan has been a sort of stealth comic - making huge audiences laugh without having much TV exposure. That’s about the change a bit on Sunday when “Brian Regan: Standing Up” premieres on Comedy Central this Sunday at 10PM. Here’s a couple of clips from it:

I love the incredibly long pause he holds here. It’s amazing how the mouth movements milk a bit of laughter every time.

This clip is just sarcasm at its best. Plus: I don’t really think of Brian Regan as a shape shifting comic, but damn if he doesn’t look like a donkey while he’s braying.

If you like this, you’ll be happy to know this is just the first part of his Comedy Central deal which involves a live tour (going on right now) and a second one-hour special. So eat up, more to come.

Update: Check out my Interview with Brian Regan where we talk about not being good clean fun and why tour buses are the death of comedy.

Can’t wait to see this new special. Too bad it’ll only be 40 minutes of material interspersed with 20 minutes of Comedy Central bumpers and self-promos. Ugh.

The first clip is great - pauses that long spell instant death for most comics, but Regan always pulls it off.
