Brent Blakeney is a larger than life comedian. Seriously, he is almost too big to exist in polite society. With a background in High School theater, which obviously makes him more confident than it should, Brent has spent the last decade touring the country and perfecting his craft.

Brent has been seen in clubs and colleges across this nation. He was a winner of Kenan Thompson's Nationwide "Road to NYC" contest, which allowed him to perform at the historic Caroline's on Broadway in NYC.

Brent is also the featured opener for Last Comic Standing winner, Jon Reep. These opportunities have led to comedy festivals, where Brent was voted "Best of Fest" at the SLO Comedy Festival in San Luis Obispo, California. He has also been seen on Circle Network's "Stand Up Nashville" season 1, and is heading back to film season 2 in early 2022.
