For over 25 years, Brett Walkow has been making audiences laugh all over the world with his signature blend of silliness, warmth, and off-the-cuff audience interaction.

In 2011, Brett created, wrote, directed, produced and starred in his dream project, “The Hanukkah Mensch’s 8 Nights of Hanukkah.” After winning Best Short Film at the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival, Brett’s passion for Jewish comedy was able to flourish on a whole new level. From hosting fundraisers in Chicago to making them laugh at a Purim celebration in New York; Brett brings his own heartwarming, hilarious twist to Jewish events. Most recently Brett is proud to announce that the dozen Jewish comedy short films created by his company, HappyTown Films, have hit 50,000 views worldwide, bringing his viral online comedies to over 7 million views!


Faith and community are a big part of Brett Walkow's life, no matter where he goes. Entertaining Jewish audiences feels a bit like coming home for him, each and every performance. This special show about living life as a Jewish entertainer is a loving tribute to his community of friends and family. We hope to see you there!

Our corporate banquet was held on a Monday evening following a very long day of lectures. Our doc's and staff were tired and ready to end the day until Brett took the mic. His humor was exactly what we needed and we plan to have him return next year. He did a great bringing laughter into what we do as sleep doc's. Thanks a million Brett!

Brett performed at my 50th B-day Party. He was absolutely HYSTERICAL! EVERY ONE of my guests (ages 13-75) thought he did a wonderful job. He totally made my party a success! Prior to the party, I gave him specifics about me to use in his material. A perfect combo of his routine & some jokes about me. No “off-color” humor; he was extremely funny, charismatic & personable. It is quite obvious that he loves what he does; it absolutely shows in his performance. Laughter is the best medicine. I would definitely hire him again & I highly recommend that you hire him too.

Brett helped to make our annual Christmas Party extremely successful. He did not disappoint in his promise to keep the show extremely family friendly, yet still was able to make his routine funny even with those tight and most likely challenging parameters. It helped to calm my nerves trying to make our party successful with Brett on board.

We advertised for the event and since we had Brett coming, we were able to attract more people than we would have doing a stuffy Medicare Seminar.  Boring!  The show was a hit! There were tons of laughs and tears were flowing down our faces.  So fun to see our audience having such a blast.   We will most definitely do that again.  Those of us in the “healthcare industry” know the challenges of attracting professionals into the community.  This by far was one of our greatest ideas to date.  We still talk about the event and our guests thought it was awesome too.   We love Brett!

 Brett was on fire, igniting the guests with laughter. Guests had so many positive comments. Brett really made the event fun and engaging – “the best one in years”, according to many parents and alumni. We can’t wait for next year.

HYSTERICAL! Brett was the epitome of class and the professionalism as well. It was a great event and we have re-booked him again on a monthly basis throughout our winter golf course months!

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, not just through his rigorous preparations. I could not have been happier to have Brett's imaginative and creative energy at my event. I would recommend him most highly to anyone who prefers Miracle Whip over your plan old mayo.

- David R, Chicago, IL 


I can't say enough great things about Brett. This man is super professional, worked with us every step of the way to accommodate our needs, and, most importantly, hilarious. A lot of people who attended our event said they thought he was awesome and the stories he was telling were really funny and comical. Brett is fantastic and if you're looking for a comedian who will liven up your event, he's just the guy you need!


- Nate W, Saint Charles, IL
