Brian Regan Stand Up
Mr. Regan’s comedy career began inauspiciously when he dropped out of Ohio’s Heidelberg College to become a busboy at the Comic Strip in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in the early 1980s. After shows, he’d take to the stage as people were filing out. Finally, he began working on the road full-time, just as a new stand-up boom launched.
After almost 40 years as a comedian, he is still inarguably one of the most jovial, likable stage presences out there. His reputation as a “clean comic” has damaged his credibility amongst coastal audiences these days, but he remains a heartland favorite, and it’s easy to see why when watching Stand Up and Away!, his hybrid stand-up/sketch series for Netflix.
The format of the show basically adapts the Chapelle Show and Key & Peele format to be more stand-up specific. He performs bits before throwing to video that either continues the premise of the bit or goes in its own direction. To do this, he enrolls the help of his “floor producer” Beth Triffon, a winning presence who is given an impossible job in the context of the show.
Triffon practically acts as the sidekick here, but the problem is that in a show that needs to go from stand-up to interjection to sketch, the interjections from Triffon are doomed to feel inorganic, despite her best efforts. Stand-up of the Regan variety often hinges on the suspension of disbelief that these are off-the-cuff observations, and this is undercut by the format of the show, which reveals the seams of the narrative in spite of itself.
That said, Regan’s gentle presence doesn’t necessarily impede the material. In the first episode, he turns his iconic Dad-ish energy towards the cockiness of Neil Armstrong at cocktail parties “interjecting in another conversation with “that reminded me, once I was driving in the Sea of Tranquility…”, or a hearing aid that markets itself by noting you’ll be able to hear other people whispering (“they didn’t invent whispering for compliments”).
This energy floats the show most of the time, but can’t dig it out of a format that just lacks enough focus to really get going.
Brian Regan Netflix
In nearly 40 years of performing stand-up comedy, Mr. Regan notched numerous accomplishments but never household-name fame. Now he has a new show with Jerry Seinfeld as executive producer.
In a craft that is said to be all about timing, it has taken comedian Regan nearly 40 years of performing to feel like he’s arrived. The 60-year-old has been doing stand-up since the early 1980s, when he used to steal 5 minutes on stage while bussing tables at a comedy club in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
He’s built an impressive career with his self-deprecating humor and can point to many achievements, including years of sold-out shows and 28 appearances on CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman.” But he’s never been a household name or attained Hollywood fame.
