David Brenner, stand-up comedian, author, and founder and creator of funnydeli.com is coming to Bay Street. Recognized as a political pundit who can be seen regularly on television news shows, Brenner will find the humor in current events on July 13 at 8:00 p.m. as part of Bay Street Theatre's Monday Night Comedy Club.
Brenner, a multi-talented performer, has completed four HBO Specials, the latest being "David Brenner: Back with a Vengeance" which he performed live.

Along with being on stage or in front of a camera, Brenner enjoyed a successful career as the writer/producer/director of 115 television documentaries and headed the distinguished documentary departments of both Westinghouse Broadcasting and Metromedia Broadcasting. Brenner's documentary work earned him a total of nearly thirty awards and citations including an Emmy Award. He is also the author of several books, the most recent being "I Think There's a Terrorist in My Soup," a guide on how to use humor and laughter to get through personal problems as well as how to cope with the problems of the world.
