    Feature - Brent Blakeney

    Brent's stand-up career started in May of 2011 when he took the stage at the Comedy Zone in Lynchburg, VA. After finding the spark, it has been a constant experiment in the ability of joke writing and coming to terms with the fact that his master's degree in philosophy probably isn't going to get him anywhere in life.

Brent has worked with stars and legendary comedians Don "DC" Curry, Bill Burr, Josh Blue, and Brian Regan.
