The Super Serious Show with Brendon Walsh

Super Serious Show is back. Thursday, April 21st. This month we have raconteur comedian Brendon Walsh running the show. Walsh is a favorite comedian with a diverse fan base, touring clubs and festivals nationwide. His comedy is always surprising and fun. His comedy is silly and smart, always engaging.

Walsh hails from Philadelphia and established his comedy career while living in Austin, TX. In 2004 he won the “Funniest Person In Austin” contest and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live as the original character “Scary Monster” (a terrible monster stand-up comedian). Walsh continued to gain fans in 2005 and 2006 as Austin Chronicle’s readers voted him “Best Stand-up Comedian.” His other TV appearances include Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and Conan on TBS.

Other Walsh accolades include winning the grand prize on the comedy stage in the 2007 Famecast.com internet contest, being featured on the Just For Laughs “New Faces” 2008 Montreal showcase. In 2010 he returned to the festival to tape his HBO Special “Funny As Hell.” In addition to his stage stand-up skills, Walsh also writers and regularly appears on TruTV’s The World’s Dumbest.
