Corporate Clean Comedy - Clean Corporate Comedian Brett Leake's Genius with a J

Clean and Funny Sitdown Standup Comedy


A standup comic since 1983, a sit down comic since 1997, Brett remains an energetic performer of observational humor. His interest easily aroused he gives himself completely to topics that range from sweet potato pie to pi (3.14159).

Brett's lively desire to learn and to know lead him from the kitchen to the car to the classroom. Behind a persona sometimes frustrated, sometimes confused, Brett wonders about the little problems: junk mail on recycled paper; the expiration date on bottled water; light bulbs that burn out an instant after being turned on. Not content at identifying ironies, Brett offers solutions to such vexing problems as figuring out how much to tip, operating a hotel shower, and getting around the I before E rule.

True to his nature, Brett eventually finds a positive spin to whatever's bothering him whether it's getting a C in Latin to waking up tired.

Clean Corporate Comedian recommendations:

What some of the top people in the industry think of Brett's clean funny comedy.

“He broke up the whole room. People realized here’s a man with a disability and he’s not gonna’ let it bother him.”

Jay Leno
The L.A.Daily News

“He's funny. There’s a great common denominator in the comedy industry: funny is funny and that’s it.”

Jerry Seinfeld
Entertainment Tonight

“Hysterical! You da’ man.”

Jim Davis,
Creator of Garfield

Brett’s standup has been well received critically


“Pungent, wickedly intelligent, dangerously in command.”

Eve Zibart
The Washington Post


Leake’s own intelligence comes across in his ability to establish a through-line in his observations about less than controversial topics such as cheese and mathematics. As with Seinfeld, the weight of what he does isn’t in the subject but in the process applied to it.

Jeff Rubio,
Orange County (LA) Register


“...Leake’s own jokes are crafted from a delightfully rich vocabulary and delivered with understated wit...He manages to accent his gags with precise movements and expressions. Many observations are punctuated with a befuddled stare reminiscent of Stan Laurel.”

Dave Nuttycombe
The Washington Post
