Corporate Clean Comedy - Clean Corporate Comedian Brett Leake's Genius with a J
Clean and Funny Sitdown Standup Comedy
Description:A standup comic since 1983, a sit down comic since 1997, Brett remains an energetic performer of observational humor. His interest easily aroused he gives himself completely to topics that range from sweet potato pie to pi (3.14159).
Brett's lively desire to learn and to know lead him from the kitchen to the car to the classroom. Behind a persona sometimes frustrated, sometimes confused, Brett wonders about the little problems: junk mail on recycled paper; the expiration date on bottled water; light bulbs that burn out an instant after being turned on. Not content at identifying ironies, Brett offers solutions to such vexing problems as figuring out how much to tip, operating a hotel shower, and getting around the I before E rule.
True to his nature, Brett eventually finds a positive spin to whatever's bothering him whether it's getting a C in Latin to waking up tired.

Brett, I really enjoyed it too.”
