Steve Litman Presents
at the historic Virginia Theatre in downtown Champaign
Setting a comedic standard of excellence that others continually try to follow, Brian Regan made history on September 26 with the live broadcast of Brian Regan: Live, from Radio City Music Hall, the first live broadcast of a stand-up special in Comedy Central’s history.
Earlier this year, Brian made a scene-stealing cameo in Chris Rock’s film, Top Five, and he was seen in Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. But it is stand-up comedy that is Brian’s focus, visiting close to 100 cities annually and selling out some of the most beautiful venues on the continent.
On May 8, Brian made his 28th and final stand-up performance on Late Show With David Letterman, the most of any comic since the show began on CBS. Brian is the unique comedian whose material is relatable to generations of fans and revered by comedians as the best in the business:
“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 at the Arlington Theater. 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
Brian Regan will appear at the historic Virginia Theatre for one show only on April 3, 2016. Tickets are priced at $44.50 and will go on-sale Friday, December 11 at 10:00 A.M. Tickets available at the Virginia Theatre Box Office, TheVirginia.org or charge by phone at: 217-356-9063.
