Neal Brennan is best known as the Emmy-nominated co-creator of Chappelle’s Show, writing the most iconic comedy sketches of our generation in partnership with Dave Chappelle. Neal’s standup pushes the boundaries of the form in exciting new directions, from his structurally inventive Netflix special 3 Mics to his vulnerable one-man show Unacceptable. His talents as writer, director and producer are sought after by the biggest names in comedy—you’ve seen his work on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Chris Rock: Tamborine, Inside Amy Schumer, The Mindy Project, New Girl, the Academy Awards broadcast, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and of course, the cult classic film Half Baked, which he co-wrote with Dave Chappelle.
