Brad Upton first stepped on stage in September of 1984 and he’s never looked back. This ex-grade school teacher is now in his 30th year of comedy and is nearing 6000 lifetime performances.
He is a past winner of the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and appeared recently at Caesar’s Palace as part of the HBO Comedy Festival. He has spent the last eight years as the opening act for the legendary Johnny Mathis and did multiple shows all over the country with the late, great Joan Rivers. He has also been seen in concert with The Smothers Brothers, Smokey Robinson, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Lewis Black, George Jones, Glen Campbell, Pam Tillis and many others.
Coast to coast all over North America isn’t the only place Brad performs. In 2014 Brad headlined in Singapore, Hong Kong, The MGM in Macau and did eight nights in Israel as part of the Comedy for Koby benefit. His new CD entitled, “Brad Uptonogood” is heard regularly on Sirius Satellite Radio and is available online wherever music is sold. He also just released his first DVD entitled, “Brad Upton, Live from the 509”.
The Comedy Underground is the only venue where you can catch each week of the Preliminaries and the Semi-Finals.
