Last year, Brett was blessed to be asked to entertain at a Jewish retirement village here in Skokie, Illinois. “I loved being able to bring something different and special to such wonderful people.” – Brett. Brett has now joined forces with entertainer Layne “Doc” LaPage and have begun rehearsals on their new song and dance variety show in homage to the classic Martin and Lewis shows.
Their tour of retirement homes begins this August!
Thank you to everyone at The Great Jewish Family Festival for allowing me to be a part of and emcee the most beautiful family festival I’ve ever seen!
“The proceedings were emceed by Brett Walkow, a lanky stand-up comedian with a shock of red hair, who has regaled audiences around the globe. But to us, he is Baruch Meir, a regular at Skokie Chabad, and a dear friend to many.” – Chabad.org
And coolest bonus? I got to kick it with the mayor of Skokie and Secretary of State Jesse White. What what!
For 3 days I was blessed to be able to run around filming one of the most joyous schools I’ve ever seen. Please enjoy my latest film.
A tribute to my favorite thing in this world… children

One day my friend Aaron asked me if I’d come study Torah with him and some friends in the morning. He said 5:30am and I thought he was crazy. But soon after that our study group turned into 30 people and The Chicago Tribune, Chabad.org (below), and Skokie News all did an article on us. Then, guess what, Rabbi Yochanan Posner & I made a film about it. I proudly share with you my first film here in Chicago, Morning Torah.
A TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT ROBIN WILLIAMS. You will be very missed.
It’s been quite a year. (To say the least) And because of so many wonderful people in my life, like you all, and the beauty of Hashem, I a year later have the life I’ve could of only dreamed of. So I had to share this with you all. Today is a beautiful day. A glorious day. I had my Bris and naming this morning surrounded by my brothers, my friends, my family. And in the tradition of my ridiculousness, I thought I would share my Hebrew name with some artwork and photos expressing how I feel inside. All my love, Baruch Meir.
Put down your iPhone. Stop shopping. Get out of your car. Find a friend. Take a walk. And remember what life is all about. Good Shabbos Everyone
THE POWER OF LOVE
I went and saw Huey a few weeks ago. He’s inspired me since I was in 8th grade. So in tribute to him and the friends who inspired this video, here’s a treat for you all. A special edition of my Huey Lewis Music Video, with a shout out to the BHHS Normans from Marty & Doc. Enjoy.
