For 25 years, entertainer Brett Walkow has been making audiences laugh all over the world with his signature blend of silliness, warmth, and off-the-cuff audience interaction. He's performed alongside Melissa McCarthy & Jimmy Fallon, appeared on The Tonight Show, and in Seinfeld's movie 'Comedian'.  Brett’s credits include: The Golden Globes, Comedy Central, HBO, NBC, FOX, CBS, Just For Laughs Festival, Lollapalooza, 11 years in Las Vegas (Harrahs & MGM Casinos), a 200 episode celebrity talk show (with guests including Kevin Nealon, George Wallace, The Simpsons, Family Guy), Hollywood red carpet specials, and live venues worldwide.

In 2011, this director, producer, writer, editor, actor, & musician decided to create a production company to bring his creations to life, ClownTown. His first film was the smash “Carmageddon: The 405.” This Los Angeles spoof was featured on every major TV news station and even translated into Spanish!  Brett used this success to write, direct, and star in his passion project, “The Hanukkah Mensch’s 8 Nights Of Hanukkah,” winner of Best Short Film at the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival. The next 3 years, went on to direct commercials, shows, documentaries, a special for The Improv Comedy Clubs, and as the head of creative content for product lines and festivals.
In 2014, Los Angeles' ClownTown expanded and evolved into Chicago’s HappyTown Studios. Brett and his team have been living a dream come true, always producing something new project after project. The commercial short “The Science of Happiness”, which went viral worldwide, reaching fans from Las Vegas to South Africa. “The Eagle Report” hitting 60,000 views in its first 6 days of release, giving love and support to our Chicago Teachers during their strike. And recently, Brett directed an amazing documentary in Los Angeles about the triumph of the human spirit over tragedy.

Brett truly believes we should all help one another and always spends a huge portion of his year performing for charities coast to coast with the help of his company, HappyTown Fundraisers; including creating & headlining The Band of Brothers Comedy Tour, bringing laughter to our troops stationed in the Persian Gulf and Northern Africa. 


In the last few years, Brett co-starred with Richard Riehle in the film "We Love You Not", appeared in a over dozen commercials (including one in the 2023 Super Bowl!), and is now currently directing a series of commercials for Loose Fit Stays Up Socks!

"Brett Walkow is one of those rare talents who has clearly been working at his craft for most of his life; he is funny by INSTINCT,"

The Wellington Group

"Brett Walkow has the ability to fill a room with energy and laughs. The words "high-octane" and "electrifying" are probably over-used in the entertainment world, but in the case of his act, they are fitting"

- Georg Szalai, NY Bureau Chief – Hollywood Reporter

"Brett in a nutshell is a nutcase in his own right. And the crowd loves it."
