Though you may expect someone a little edgier to be one of the most popular comics among fellow comedians, Brian Regan has developed a reputation for being one of the most hands-down hilarious performers among his peers. The lack of blue material in his repertoire often gets him labeled as a “clean” comic, but even a casual observer can tell that Regan doesn’t need to go blue to get laughs, and if it weren’t pointed out to you, you probably wouldn’t notice. Regan capitalizes on his clean-cut, wacky-dad image on stage, accentuating observational humor and storytelling by physically acting out caricatures of the people involved in his jokes, and often giving himself short shrift as a lumbering, primitive dummy. But his recent deal to produce two new comedy specials for Netflix – and packed theaters around the country – prove that Regan is dumb like a fox.
