Three-time Emmy nominated writer, director, producer, and standup comedian Neal Brennan has become a force in the comedy world. An across-the-board talent, Neal has found success in almost every creative vein in the comedy landscape. He has collaborated with the top writers and talent in the business and worked on several popular shows in various capacities. If there is a comedy that audiences are responding to, Neal is often somewhere to be found.

Neal’s second one-man show Neal Brennan: Unacceptable opened in previews for a six-week run at The Cherry Lane Theatre in NYC on August 25th, 2021. In the show, directed by Artist/Magician Derek Delguadio (In & Of Itself), Brennan meticulously examines his own defects, attempting to understand his baffling inability to fit into a group and the alienation that comes along with it. Unacceptable’s run was extended through November 21st, 2021 due to popular demand with The New Yorker lauding “Brennan is sharp and entertainingly droll, with a deliberate pacing—he appears to walk in slow motion—that is very effective.” Neal’s critically acclaimed first off-Broadway one-man show 3 Mics also enjoyed a sold-out NYC run in 2016 with superstar musician John Legend serving as Producer. 3 Mics was taped as a stand-up special, which premiered on Netflix in 2017, with Paste Magazine offering “It will floor you in the best way possible.” In a break from traditional standup comedy, 3 Mics sees Brennan alternating between three separate microphones; one for traditional stand-up, one for one-liners, and one for short confessional monologues covering everything from managing his depression to his difficult relationship with his father.

Neal is currently a writer, Creative Consultant, and on-air correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. He served as Executive Producer on Chris Rock’s latest standup special Chris Rock: Tamborine and as Director on comedian Michelle Wolf’s recent HBO special Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady. He also co-wrote the 2017 feature film The Female Brain alongside comic Whitney Cummings and he can be seen in the Netflix film Fonzo alongside Tom Hardy.

In addition to standup, writing, directing, and producing, Brennan has also directed popular commercials for Sprite, Netflix, Best Buy and Nike. He has a huge presence on social media with 375,000 followers on twitter, and was named “One of the Funniest People on Twitter” by Time Magazine and Rolling Stone.

After dropping out of the prestigious NYU Film School, Neal began his career at the age of 20 as a writer on the MTV dating game show, “Singled Out,” (you’re welcome) and the Nickelodeon sketch show, “All That.” Since then, he has performed standup and lent his hand at writing and directing several TV shows and films, developing what The New York Times calls his “hip-hop and Frontline aesthetic.” He regularly headlines the good standup venues in the good parts of America.

He does see Dave pretty often. Dave is fine.

  13. Brian on July 20, 2022 at 12:58 pm

    Neal’s Three Mics show very likely saved my life. I was in a terribly dark place and discovered it by chance and his candor around mental health struggles made me feel like I wasn’t alone. I would absolutely love to take my now wife to this show.

  26. Kiyomi on July 22, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Drawing occurs on my dirty 30! This is the only perfect gift I can fathom possibly experiencing right now. Niel Brennan had such an impacting presence on Netflix special. He artistically keeps an audience tightly attentive and interested from start to finish. His execution is calm, neat, clean, steady– it’s just comfortable and easy to listen and pay attention. That’s a rare and difficult skill he so effortlessly has. I must see this!!! Portlandians please 🙏 this is so my vibe!!

  27. Patrick Sinclair Jr on July 23, 2022 at 8:35 am

    Neal is hysterical! Going to this would be perfect! His 3 Mics special was fantastic! Just got relocated with my job, sorting some personal things out, so this would be the perfect break from all that, laughter is truly the best medicine! Would love to see this!!

  28. Samantha on July 23, 2022 at 1:27 pm
