NEW YORK, May 8, 2015 - "Brian Regan: Live" will be the first live stand-up special in Comedy Central history, airing live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Saturday, September 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Brian Regan will announce the exciting news during his twenty-eighth appearance on the "Late Show with David Letterman," which will air tonight.
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
"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 tonight he will make his twenty-eighth and final stand-up appearance, the most of any comedian since the show began on CBS. Regan was most recently seen in the latest Chris Rock film, "Top Five," and 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. Prior to his Radio City Music Hall performance, Brian will return to the legendary 8600-seat Red Rocks Amphitheater on September 5 and in 2014 he sold out two shows at the 12,500-seat EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City.
