Fierce and provocative Australian stand-up Brendon Burns examines areas where other comics fear to tread, tackling subjects such as racism, political correctness, white privilige and the concept offense.
As seen on Channel 4's The 11 O' Clock show, Brendon won the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award in 2007 for his show So I Suppose THIS is Offensive Now in 2007 and is the host of The Brendon Burns Show and Dumb White Guy podcasts.
Always challenging, sometimes controversial, not for the easily offended.
"Properly funny" ★★★★ The Times
"Always a live-wire... his enthusiasm boundless" ★★★★★ The Wee Review
"His moral outrage at the prejudices and segregation that still exist fuels his dynamic performance" ★★★★ Chortle
Wonderfully absurd US comic - a frequent guest comedian on The Late Show with David Letterman, and one of Jerry Seinfeld's favourite comics.
"Nightmarishly amusing" ★★★★ The Telegraph
"If you see Al Lubel you'll never forget his name" The Independent
"You just admire the perverse workings of his brain" The Scotsman
"That’s part of the joy of the middle-aged New Yorker’s comedy – the ability to sustain a silly joke longer that anyone would think it could be funny" Time Out
