Brett Martin is making a mark on Canadian Stand-Up Comedy. His resume is extensive and now he’s starting to make a name for himself. He has headlined across the Country as well as at The Rocky Mountain Comedy Festival and The Calgary Comedy Festival. He also had an impressive performance at ‘The Comedy Store’ in London, England.

Brett Martin can now be heard on ‘Laff Attack’ on XM Satellite Radio. London, New York, Toronto and Montreal among the hundreds of places he performed. He has also appeared at countless College and Universities across Canada.

Brett Martin has a style of his own, a unique manner of comedy that has matured, but not mellowed. When you combine the incredibly funny, inventive manner in which he delivers his comedy with his compulsive need to speak into a microphone, it's no small wonder that he is as funny as he is. The future is very bright for this already veteran comedian who is still in his mid-twenties.

The Reviews are in:

Greg, Ottawa
“Saw you in Ottawa - BRILLIANT! I've seen comedians on TV that weren't even half as good as your show! Keep it up - it was f*ckin' funny!! Cheers!”

Purdy, Ontario
“I'm a hard-core comedy club junky (hit 3 in LA in one night) and I keep this mental list of "ones to watch" - you're on the top of my list baby!”

It Keeps Going....

The descent or ascent, depending on your perspective, continues. I ended my working relationship with Yuk Yuks after some seven years of affiliation. It was on good terms and I leave with a good relationship in tow. Still, pleasentries and well-wishes to not ease a tough path. I have a hard road ahead - it's up to me to drive it. I can just as easily veer off the edge.

This continues what has become a bizarre time in my life where major changes and unplanned occurrences have been the norm. Predictability and normality have long since been casualties of the path I'm traveling.

There is an enormous amount of work to do, but he outlook remains positive. In the interim, I can be seen performing at the FunnyFest, the Calgary Comedy Festival. At Months end, you can catch me in my first theater show in Saskatoon. I will be joined by some of Canada's funniest comedians under 30 years of age. In fact, I think we're all 26. I am in negotiations to perform in another festival beginning in June. There are clubs around the country whom I have contacts with and will be working with within the coming months. I am the pimp of Brett Martin now. Gotta go make some money for the rent.

Most of all, my back is up against the fucking wall, and make no mistake - I feel it. I can crash and burn. I can become nothing. Nobody is out to help me. I am in the place I almost feel most comfortable - behind the eight ball. Funny - all I had to do to rediscover my edge and chutzpah was to throw away all that gave me a leg up. The Piss, vinegar and determination are back. It's all I have to rely on.

The goal remains the same.....
