Brian Regan

When: Sat., Jan. 9, 8 p.m. 2016

As popular with veteran alt-comics as he is with Mormon missionaries, stand-up Brian Regan told us in 2014, “My perspective is just a person trying to get through life ... but other people are getting in my way and diverting things.” The persona Regan adopts onstage, however, is less a perpetually exposed nerve à la Bill Burr or Larry David, but a childlike loudmouth oaf, made cranky by his confusion at the world around him. Plenty of performers have made us laugh by making themselves clowns, but few have the courage or skill to make the clowns so closely resemble the audience.

Price: $47.50-$52.50
