Los Angeles Comedy Awards Comedian of the Year, Al Del Bene broke into comedy in Boston at the ripe old age of 18. Upon moving to New York City he quickly became a staple of the underground comedy scene. After bleeding New York dry of every last joke about how miserable living there made him, Al moved to sunny Los Angeles where he became a regular at the world famous Laugh Factory on Sunset Boulevard. Al Del Bene has toured extensively with Dane Cook, performing to more than 100 sold-out stadiums and arenas as part of Cook’s tours. Del Bene has also performed at the Sydney Opera House with Bill Burr and supported Jon Lovitz and Tim Allen on countless shows.
Al has travelled to Kuwait and Iraq to perform for the troops and has had TV appearances on Comics Unleashed, Jon Lovitz Presents and NESN Comedy All Stars.

While our host's friends are busy getting married and buying properties, Brett has been representing himself in court for speeding tickets, getting kicked off a reality TV show and trying to make sure his new samurai sword matches his motorbike. You’ve seen him on Channel 10’s Common Sense and heard him on The Little Dum Dum Club podcast – we're stoked to have him with us.
