Brett Riley is a farm boy from Kansas with the heart of a soul singer which makes for a life full of unusual and out of place stories. It has been said "Brett Riley isn't a fish out of water, he is his own portable bowl." Realizing he was born to entertain, Brett took a Scholarship to Oklahoma City University for Music Theatre. He quickly learned he was meant to perform, just not music theatre. After sneaking into comedy clubs with fake IDs and getting booked as the house emcee and winning Wichita King of Comedy 2004, it became very obvious that he needed to hit the road and take it to the next level. Brett didn't waste anytime proving himself in LA, six months after arriving he claimed the title The Funniest Comic in the City 2007, which led to his appearance on Judge Joe Brown to collect the prize money. After a car accident almost claimed his life in September 2008, determined not to be forgotten Brett quickly bounced back to claim the title of Roc Da Mic Comedy Competition Compton 2009. He can most recently be seen headlining which will also be playing on Hulu.com under CandorTV.
With the future looking bright and the clarity of a second chance Brett Riley is more than ready to keep audiences entertained for years to come!
