He has made audiences laugh in Boston, New Orleans, Baltimore, Dallas and New York.

He draws audiences in with his sharp and witty observances to help them find humor in their own shortcomings. Audiences lose track of time as they join Brian on his relatable journey through his absurd life as an entrepreneur, a husband, a father, and a comedian.

Drew Jordan

Drew Jordan is a Houston comic who grew up in rural east Texas. He’s a baptist preacher’s kid with a bowel disease. One divorce under his belt and the incredible ability to fully disappoint his parents in a plethora of ways. (yes, he knows what a plethora is) Not knowing what he’s doing might be his strongest asset. There’s nothing he enjoys more than working to create awkward comedy that shares his story and connects him with others who have their own crazy weird stories.
