BRETT WALKOW simply loves to entertain. If it's The Tonight Show, HBO, overseas for our troops, for a stadium of 3000 or 30 at a holiday party, he was born to make people smile. Having worked with friends Jimmy Fallon & Melissa McCarthy or even Jerry Seinfeld, just to name a few, Brett has been entertaining worldwide for over 25 years. If it's roasting the company staff, raising money for children's charities, or joking with Dad for his birthday, Brett always plays with his crowds making every show a fun personal experience.
...As a COMEDIAN & EMCEE, he has a high energy show about the ridiculousness of life. His specialty is improv, where he plays with the audience, making everyone part of the show. He can create a comedy roast personalized to you or your company! Never mean-spirited, always silly and fun. He brings new life to events with his creativity. If it's his comedy concert, emceeing your gala, giving out fake awards during awards ceremonies, hosting game shows… the possibilities are endless as he tailor-makes a night of fun, just for you. His credits also include: The Golden Globes, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, MTV, Comedy Central, Lollapalooza 2017 (all 4 days), Celebrity Cruises, and has over 7 million YouTube views!
...As an AUCTIONEER, Brett proudly helps every organization he works with raise more money than ever before, by making it a high energy & heartwarming experience. He literally puts the fun in fundraiser. He's the annual host for organizations coast to coast: Cure SMA (4 years), Abilis (4 years), Lumind Down Syndrome  (LA, NY, & Chicago - 8 years), and celebrity charity events including: Laurence School fundraiser @ Jim Henson Studios with Dave Grohl & Gwen Stefani to The Fashion Business Institute of Los Angeles Fundraiser (5 years). Making sure your organization raises as much money as possible is his top priority. Alongside his staff at HappyTown Studios, he helps guide you every step of the way, curating an array of the most profitable items, advising you on the timeline of the night to ensure maximum audience engagement, and everything in between. Thinking outside the box to make your fundraiser original and most successful is what he does best!

Our organization hired Brett for a 200 guest fundraising event. Brett was accommodating from start to finish. I knew he was going to be good when I first heard his voice on the phone. What an INCREDIBLE speaking voice! He took our organizations purpose very seriously, and got to know us before the big day. He knows his stuff! He was able to help us set up the room for the best lighting and sound for a fabulous show. He has lots of energy. And HE WAS VERY VERY FUNNY!!!! He even incorporated the audience into the show. We loved it and had many compliments from our guests. I would recommend Brett in a heartbeat. Look no further…. Don’t miss this guy!

Brett performed at my 50th B-day Party. A ½ hour show while guests were enjoying dinner. He was absolutely HYSTERICAL! EVERY ONE of my guests (ages 13-75) thought he did a wonderful job. He totally made my party a success! Prior to the party, I gave him specifics about me to use in his material. A perfect combo of his routine & some jokes about me. No “off-color” humor; he was extremely funny, charismatic & personable. It is quite obvious that he loves what he does; it absolutely shows in his performance. Laughter is the best medicine…. but not a “hang-over” cure LOL I would definitely hire him again & I highly recommend that you hire him too.

Brett was wonderful!!! The audience were cancer survivors / patients and he certainly got their mind off what they were dealing with. One person said the key to getting through what they are dealing with is laughter and Brett certainly delivered that!! We were running a little behind and it didn't bother him one bit. Brett was very accommodating to all of our requests.
