Biography

David Brenner has had a remarkable career. Beginning with his debut National TV appearance on The Tonight Show, where he went on to make the most appearances of any guest on the show--158. He has continued to be the most frequent talk show guest of any entertainer, as confirmed in The Book of List #2. Today, his act is based on "very" current events and he is recognized as a political pundit, on news-oriented shows, like CNN and The Fox Network.

Mr. Brenner has done four HBO Specials, including his last one which was performed live with no safety net, David Brenner: Back with a Vengeance and proved once again THAT the Philadelphia native is still "the ultimate comeback kidder." The show was one of HBO's highest rated specials and, among the glowing reviews, The Hollywood Reporter proclaimed, "He's edgier and more insightful in his skewering of popular culture than ever before ..."

While to continuing to do stand up comedy around the country, David Brenner has moved his talent onto the computer, as the founder and creator of a unique comedy web site, www.FunnyDeli.com.

But Mr. Brenner wasn't always on a stage or in front of the TV camera. Before becoming a comedian, he enjoyed a successful career as the writer/producer/director of 115 television documentaries and headed the distinguished documentary departments of both Westinghouse Broadcasting and Metromedia Broadcasting. His documentary work earned him a total of nearly thirty awards and citations including an Emmy Award.

David Brenner's fifth book, I Think There's a Terrorist in My Soup, was a guide on how to use humor and laughter to get through personal problems as well as how to cope with the problems of the world. His first book, Soft Pretzels with Mustard, was a best seller.

This multi-talented man began as a kid in the poor sections of South and West Philadelphia where he was a gang leader who used humor as a powerful weapon or a negotiating tool. From fourth grade through high school, Mr. Brenner was elected class president, as well as class comedian. He attended Temple University where, in spite of being funny, he graduated with honors, majoring in mass communications.
