Brad Upton first tried doing stand-up comedy in 1984 and he’s never looked back. From observing his everyday life as a husband and father, events in the news and his former occupation as a fourth grade teacher, Brad puts a hilarious spin and look on our world around us. This ease and likability on stage led the Seattle Times to say, “…he has mastered the nearly impossible task of appealing to people from the ages of 18-80.”
Brad rose rapidly through the stand-up comedy ranks and has headlined nearly every comedy club from Anchorage to Miami. He has made numerous cable television appearances on A&E, MTV and Showtime. He has also opened for such recording stars as Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, and Pam Tillis. Brad is also very popular among corporate clients. An accomplished writer, he has sold stories to clients such as Sports Illustrated. He has acted professionally and was seen recently in the movie, “Prefontaine”. From 1996-2000, he was heard around the country as a regular guest on National Public Radio’s “Rewind” program. He is a regular performer in Reno and Las Vegas as well as headlining for Royal Caribbean, Holland-America and Norwegian Cruise Lines. He was named the winner of the inaugural Las Vegas Comedy Festival, an event that drew over 1000 comedians. He also caught the eye of the legendary Smothers Brothers and is occasionally called by them to serve as their opening act around the country. Brad is also currently writing for ESPN3.com. His likeability, ease on stage, experience and hilarious observations and writing skills make him a hit with a wide variety of ages and audiences.
