This guy is fantastic!! Keeps you laughing and interested the entire time. This was an
amazing NYE show and I loved the atmosphere of the theater. Would absolutely come
back here for more NYE shows!

IT DOESN'T GET BETTER
I've seen Brian Regan on 7 different occasions, and he's always awesome. Definitely a
must see for comedy fans. His opener last time, Steven Rogers, was amazing as well.
Definitely someone to watch in the comedy world.

BRIAN REGAN IS JUST SO DARNED FUNNY.
Such a funny, clever, solid set. Brian Regan made Carnegie Hall feel like his living
room and he was our hilarious host. At times, I laughed until I couldn't breath.

LOVE THIS GUY
So many topics and all relatable. Had us laughing till it hurt. Great night out in a great venue.

“SAY 8! SAY 8!” BRIAN REGAN AND PETE CORREALE ROCK!
HILARIOUS!! Brian Regan does EVERYTHING funny! His expressions and timing ... classic Regan! He makes just looking at someone hysterically funny. PLUS, Pete Correale was *awesome* as the opener! His razor sharp wit was on full display and he had the audience in stitches. What a show!! Brian did the ultimate classy thing by coming out for an encore and asking the audience which bit they wished to hear. What a treat! First class production. We will definitely see Brian Regan and Pete Correale again!
Joseph Mitchell from Seattle, Washington
BRIAN REGAN IN SEATTLE
I took my daughter to see Brian at the Paramount last night and he delivered. Just plain hilarious. To quote a line from his "Top Five" character, Brian put some stank on it last night. Go see this guy perform live.
Steve from Rochester, New York
WE LOVE THIS GUY!
I brought my teenage kids (who have loved his work since they were little) to the show in the Kodak theater in Rochester. His opener (Joe Zimmer) was very funny and a different style and pace of humor than Brian. Brian's energy is so much fun to watch live and my kids and I laughed for the entire performance. I thought I had seen most or all of his material (he prefaced that he would be doing old stuff and trying some new) but I didn't recognize any of it. As always, his material related very well with us which led to further enjoyment. Maybe time flew, but it seemed to end earlier than we expected. We will see him again next time he is local.

IVE NEVER LAUGHED HARDER IN MY LIFE!!! We were very fortunate to have second row seats and the view was amazing. Brian’s facial expressions were so funny and just made the performance incredible! I also loved Joe Zimmerman who was a fantastic opening act.
from Wilmington, Delaware
LAUGHED SO HARD I CRIED!
Brian did not disappoint. I saw him in Wilmington, De last night and not only was the
opening act hilarious, Brian was outstanding! I thought the people behind me were
going to fall out of their seats laughing! I laughed so hard I tears in my eyes most of
the show. Too funny!!
from Detroit, Michigan
Brian's comedy was family friendly, yet smart (not watered down), topical and hilarious.
He doesn't need to have words that need to be bleeped out later. My teen aged
children loved it as much as my wife and I. The opening act was great too (can't
remember his name).
Diane from West Palm Beach, Florida
I've always been a fan but something was off last night. He started his set
with a joke about losing his memory. Unfortunately I think it was prophetic.
He seemed to lose his train of thought and at one time he forgot the punch
line, and admitted it. He did have some good stuff but the flubs put a
damper on his routine.
Bill G from San Diego, California
NOT HIS BEST
I didn’t think Brian brought his A game last night. He was distracted by the sounds of aircraft from the nearby airport but his new material just wasn’t all that funny. All in all, a very bland performance. His encore was literally just a commercial for his show on Amazon…he didn’t tell a single joke! Weird.
Kent Lessly from Wilmington, Delaware
HALF HEARTED SHOW ENDS EARLY
My wife and I love going to the Grand Opera House in Wilmington DE. Its not a large theatre and that makes the experience more intimate.
We are fans of Brian's stand-up and were really looking forward to seeing him live. Brian was funny, but just. He was on stage for only 40 minutes, maybe less and for an encore, all he did was show a video clip (commercial) for his Netflix series and then walked off stage. It was as if we weren't worth the effort.
Brian, if that's all you can muster, its time to retire from stand-up tours. Don't bother coming back.
Smithy from Rogers park from Chicago, Illinois
Slow start. Felt the need to explain he was going to do his new stuff and some old stuff ? Had some good new material and then ended in under an hour. Did an encore proving a series he’s in and then left. Disappointing.
K Young from Wichita, Kansas
BRIAN IN WICHITA KANSAS 5/21/22
We’re so sad. We live in Oklahoma City and seen him live every time he comes there okie driven to Tulsa and now Wichita. I’ve paid outrageous amounts for tickets but always thought it worth every penny. I don’t know if we’ll go to another and that makes me sad. His portion was over in 40 minutes too and his encore was nothing more than a 20 second commercial. I laughed at his jokes but where was the rest??? Or the old stuff he brings back in encore which is always some of the most fun of the night. He didn’t feel interested at all and seemed he could hardly wait to wrap things up. I think maybe his traveling stand up may be coming to an end. So disappointed to see my favorite comedian give a half interested performance . Please bring back the fully committed Brian Regan! Lots of money for tickets, a hotel stay, and 3 hour drive mostly wasted. :(
Rose from New York
Started late. A few really good laughs, but very very very short show. Under 45 minutes. Seen him before, but not in a few years. Different feel and tempo. Maybe getting older, slowing down?
Dan from Wichita, Kansas
NOT ON IT LAST NIGHT
Short performance to start with. First guy was funnier. Forgot several lines. Cost 187.00 for 3 people. Should have watched special at home. Seats in balcony was great. Parking was easy. Nothing like last years performance.
Julie from Cincinnati, Ohio
So, I’ve seen a lot of comedians and was looking forward to Brian Regan for months! First - show started late - not unheard of, but unusual. The opener was ok, he did his part and warmed up the crowd. But then, inexplicably, after his 15 minute set he encouraged everyone to go get refills as they were going to ‘take a little break’ and all the lights turned back on. What???? 20 minutes later Regan came on and he was done in less than 60 minutes. He had a few very funny moments - but he seemed to struggle. Maybe an off night? I think he is probably typically much better than last night in Cincinnati... but I wish I would’ve had tickets to that show instead!
Jay from Fort Myers, Florida
I love this guy, however, the last two times I have seen him he has been subpar. I will not go see him live again. I gave him a mulligan in Fort Laudeedale a few years ago. Last week in Fort Myers, he seemed to be rushing to get off of the stage. His set lasted about 45-50 minutes. We were all like “that’s it?” Oh well. I still love the old Regan but he has definitely lost touch.
Bruce from Knoxville, Tennessee
Typical corporate, vanilla comedy, but delivered like a kindergarten teacher telling stories to toddlers. It was less than an hour which was more than enough.
MC from NC from Durham, North Carolina
10 minutes late starting. Z-man did his normal warm up. Brian struggled from the start. Told more family related stories than ever before. Threw in a couple of old jokes at the end to try and salvage the show. Disappointed that friends drove 5+ hours for the show. Easily the worst Regan show we have attended. Hopefully this was a one off and not the direction comedy is headed.
Anonymous from Denver, Colorado
DISAPPOINTED HORRIBLE SET
Best and only good part was the venue and a couple of old jokes he did at the
end. Not one good new joke, actually left feeling bad for his huge fail
C. Washington from Phoenix, Arizona
VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED
My husband and I have seen Brian Regan on 3 different occasions, most recently in Phoenix, AZ on 12/31/2019. Regardless of the cost of the tickets to the event (we had a VIP Suite), Brian nor the comedian that appeared before him (Zimmerman), were not the least bit funny. This was absolutely a waste of money and time to a very disappointing New Year's Eve event. And on top of that, he was only on stage for an hour! We would NOT RECOMMEND anyone spend their money or time to see Brian Regan.
RS from Seattle, Washington
BRIAN REGAN IN SEATTLE WA
Brian is my favorite comedian .. I thought he bombed in Seattle.. I took SEVEN people to the Show ..it was disappointing .. I love his comedy.. but the last show / material was not very good!
