Brian Regan, a stand-up comedian known for his balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, will perform at the Chumash Casino at 8 p.m. Friday, July 13.

Fresh off last year’s successful “Brian Regan: Nunchucks and Flamethrowers” Netflix comedy special, he has distinguished himself as one of the top acts on the comedy circuit and has embarked on a U.S. tour.

After leaving college, Regan started working as a cook and dishwasher at the Comic Strip comedy club in Fort Lauderdale, where he began to perform regularly.

In 1986, he moved to New York City and made a name for himself there in just two years. By the early ’90s, he began making television appearances on late-night talk shows and starred in two Showtime stand-up specials.

For Comedy Central, his first special, “Brian Regan: Standing Up,” debuted in June 2007, followed by “The Epitome of Hyperbole” in September 2008.

In 2015, Regan recorded Comedy Central’s first live stand-up special, “Brian Regan: Live from Radio City Music Hall.”

Tickets are $35, $45 & $55, available at the casino or at
