Brendon Burns

Brendon BurnsSimply a legend in the making…sparkling stuff” – The Guardian

Brendon Burns – For two decades now the adopted Australian has been Britain’s most outspoken and number one cult comic. Since taking away the long-awaited Oscar of live stand-up comedy: the if.comedy award for best live comedy show in 2007, Burns has been one of the most prolific and busiest men in show-business both here and across the pond.

In late 2008 Brendon Burns recorded not one but two live DVDs for Universal, and aired a special on Comedy Central over the Spring of 2009. Time Out London gave the special five stars and wrote:

“He’s an Enigma wrapped in a riddle, multiplied by a puzzle is Brendon Burns. That and a squawking, foul mouthed pricker of pomposity, whom it’s nonetheless hard to love… the most jaw-droppingly awkward, painful, yet ultimately rewarding piece of stand up we’ve ever seen. He might be irritating but he’s very good.”

Also in the fall of 2009 Burns made his US TV debut on Paul Provenza’s Green Rooms on Showtime as a regular contributer and panellist. Appearing alongside such greats as Eddie Izzard, Andy Kindler, Andy Dick, Roseanne Barr, Larry Miller, Dana Gould and Jonathan Winters. From there Burns recorded his first US album for Stand Up Records in Chicago and tore New York a new one to boot.

Back in the UK Burns put the finishing touches on his seventh album “The Thinking Man’s Idiot”.

Brendon Burns has published his first semi-autobiographical novel, “Fear of Hat Loss in Las Vegas”.
