Brad Upton Will Easily Exceed Expectations at Corporate Events
When a performer has been in the show business since 1984 and is still going strong, you know they must have something special.
This is the case with comedian Brad Upton who, having started in the 80s, is now a busy performer headlining dozens of weekly events.

Meet Brad Upton
Curiously enough, the Seattle-based comic has initially started out as a teacher and could have made a stellar career in teaching, as well. Anyone loves an entertaining and motivating teacher, right?
However, Brad preferred the stage to the classroom and in 1984 ventured onto the comedy stage. What he thought was an open mic event turned out to be an audition for the Seattle Comedy Competition.
Since 1986, he managed to make a living out of it and score achievements like:
- approximately 130 shows a year
- touring with Joan Rivers
- opening for the legendary Johnny Mathis for a couple of years
- winner of the Las Vegas Comedy Festival
- featured in the HBO Comedy Festival
- countless TV appearances
- touring with lots of renowned artists (Dolly Parton, among others)
- shows in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong or Macau.
Brad Upton’s Material
Like the best clean comedians, Brad drives his inspiration from his day-to-day family life.
However, he can effortlessly mix it up with business-related content, as well as self-deprecatory humor – all in just the right amounts. This is what makes his content appealing to 20-somethings, as well.
Plus, he always writes his material in a style which makes any content relatable, even if the topic may not be familiar to all the members of the public.
As you can see from the clip above, Brad is a master of ‘not overdoing it.’
No outrageous facial expressions, no exaggerated gestures, no discourse delivered at light speed. Clean and effortless, Brad Upton’s gig is exceptionally well-balanced, something which goes right in with the corporate kind of entertainment.
Instant likeability and connection to the audience are the marks of a talented veteran in the industry.
Moreover, in the corporate events environment, this matters a great deal. After all, you need your comedian to possess the complete package: trustworthiness, industry-savviness, and flexibility.
Once Brad Upton steps onto the stage, his presence oozing with professionalism will win corporate audiences easily, and his observational comedy will make it hard not to relate to. Here’s an excerpt:
Cruising and Crushing It
Corporate gigs and cruise ship entertainment are the main types of events Brad Upton is invited to, even though his craft appeals to many other settings.
In an industry which is becoming increasingly overcrowded, performers like Brad are rare gems. They possess that aura of effortless, yet professional conduct – a telling indicator of how they manage to put a great deal of experience into delivering timeless excellence.
