Biography

Neal Brennan (born October 19, 1973) is an American comedian, writer, producer, director, and podcaster.He is known for co-creating and co-writing the Comedy Central series Chappelle's Show with Dave Chappelle. By the end of the second season, it was ranked as the most popular Comedy Central show. It premiered in January 2003 and continued until 2006.

Early Life

Brennan lived until the age of six in Villanova, Pennsylvania, a college town near Philadelphia, and lived from 1978 to 1986 in Wilmette, Illinois. He was born into an Irish Catholic family and is the youngest of 10 children. According to Brennan, his father's side of the family was funny, as were his five older brothers. Brennan said that he realized he was funny and liked comedy at about 8 or 9 years of age; he was already performing planned material for his classmates in a style that emulated comics Richard Lewis, Jerry Seinfeld, and David Brenner. He also watched a large amount of comedy on TV during his high school years, often staying up late to watch Late Night with David Letterman and The Arsenio Hall Show.Brennan's older brother Kevin became a comedian and writer who started doing stand-up comedy while Neal was still in high school. Neal attended Kevin's performances at the Improv in New York City on weekends, where he would meet comedians such as Ray Romano, Dave Attell, Mike Royce and David Juskow. Brennan said in an interview with Independent Film Channel (IFC) that, after watching his brother do stand-up, he realized it was possible to make a living in comedy.Brennan moved to New York to attend film school at NYU, but he dropped out after a year. He began as a doorman at the now-defunct Boston Comedy Club in Greenwich Village where he met Dave Chappelle, a frequent performer. The two became friends, and Brennan would often pitch jokes to Chappelle. Brennan also shared an apartment with comedian Jay Mohr while living in New York.After six months of working as a doorman at the Boston Comedy Club, in 1992, Brennan first performed stand-up at 18 years of age. He later recounted: "I got no laughs"; he didn't perform stand-up again until 1997. Brennan also wrote for The Source magazine in 1992.Brennan was an atheist, but confirmed on the November 18, 2020 episode of his How Neal Feel videocast that he is no longer an atheist after using ayahuasca several times
