Nationally known comedian Brett Walkow has made appearances on The Tonight Show, The Golden Globes, Lollapalooza 2017 and performed with entertainers Melissa McCarthy, Seinfeld, Jimmy Fallon and musician’s Dave Grohl & Gwen Stefani, just to name a few. Touring the world for the last 20 years, Brett’s love of making people laugh is obvious. Through his personal and silly candor he not only delivers a hysterical show on life, but goes one on one improvising and playing with his crowd throughout the whole show. His credits include: 11 years in Las Vegas (Harrahs Casino & MGM), Comedy Central, HBO, NBC, FOX, CBS, Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, his own celebrity talk show (200 episodes with guests Kevin Nealon, George Wallace, The Simpsons, Family Guy), and live venues all over the world. And it doesn’t stop there, his viral comedy films have hit over 7 million views on YouTube! Brett simply just loves to entertain.
"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
PRIVATE EVENT CLIENT REVIEWS
I hired Brett to roast my husband at his 50th B-day party. Brett collected background information on my husband from me and our friends and incorporated it in his comedy routine. He brought lots of adequate props. He also, included audience in his performance. Everybody had lots of fun! Brett is a talented performer who can feel the audience and adjust quickly to their sense of humor. He has also a very nice personality. -Grace F, Palmdale, CA

COMPANY HOLIDAY PARTY
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. At our event, Brett threw himself into a comedic role (that is, before he actually performed a high quality stand up set as himself) as a character, and was as convincing as Brando ever was. He quoted a very fair fee at the start and from there went on to go above-and-beyond the original contracted plan. 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
Brett is a VERY funny man! Our crowd ranges from 18 to 85 and he gave everyone something to laugh about. He did a Hip-Hop Country DJ rap that is totally hilarious! We at Hanson Mold would definitely recommend Brett for your corporate event. -Carole R, Benton Harbor, MI
HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATIOn PARTY
Brett was great to work with from start to finish. He responded promptly by phone and email to our inquiry. He listened to our needs and offered to do a program tailored to our son's high school graduation celebration. Brett communicated well throughout the process, asking a lot of questions to personalize the entertainment content. He ended up doing a "light" roast of our son, kind of a "this is your life" type of content. Brett showed up early to the event, came prepared, and entertained well beyond the our time expectations. I would highly recommend him! -Joel W, La Grange
Brett was wonderful!!! The audience were cancer survivors / patients and he certainly got their mind off what they were dealing with. One person said the key to getting through what they are dealing with is laughter and Brett certainly delivered that!! We were running a little behind and it didn't bother him one bit. Brett was very accommodating to all of our requests. -Clare P, Homewood, IL
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 Bret took the mic. His humor was exactly what we needed and we plan to have him return next year. He did a great brining laughter into what we do as sleep doc's. Thanks a million Bret! -Donna W, Peoria, IL
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! Dean Gabey GM Waters Edge Golf Course -Dean G, Worth, IL
ASSISTED LIVING/RETIREMENT COMMUNITY
Our Assisted Living Community decided to have an event and spice things up with some fun. So we went searching for a good comedian to entertain our guests. We found Brett Walkow. He was so helpful from the beginning to the end. 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 Walkow is outstanding! We took a gamble this year and decided to use a professional auctioneer to help boost our School's Annual Auction proceeds. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! It was the first time in 4 years we saw an increase in proceeds. Brett was on fire, igniting the guests with laughter and competitive spirit, knocking the fund-a-need goal out of the ballpark. 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. - Jean Robinson | Benefit Chair
