Variety’s first “Stand-Up for Variety Kids” event was such a success we’re bringing it back for 2022! Now with a live in person AND a virtual option, everyone can enjoy some much needed laughter and help Variety kids at the same time.
Our host site will be Zanies in Rosemont, IL and direct from Las Vegas our headliner: BUTCH BRADLEY!
Veteran comedian, Butch Bradley has taken his unique blend of stand-up and improv around the globe; from small clubs to big casinos, feature films to late-night television, to active war zones in the Middle East for USO venues. A true “comic’s comic,” Bradley’s longevity and popularity come from his insightful, always fresh comedic material. Eternally casting his wry observational net over day-to-day existence, his comedy is in a constant state of metamorphosis. Bradley’s humor is upbeat, often manic, provocative but never malicious; his observations can come totally out of left field yet they ring true.
As comic, actor, and comedy club owner Brad Garret (Everybody Loves Raymond) says about Bradley’ “From the first time I watched Butch Bradley headline my club in Las Vegas, I realized 2 things. One, I really don’t want to follow him and two, he’s truly a force of comedic brilliance. Even more now, I fear the Irish.”
Named Best Comedian 2020 by “Best of Las Vegas”, Bradley’s first standup special “Butch Bradley: Live From Las Vegas” is now streaming on all platforms. In film, he was most recently seen in The Opening Act starring Bill Burr, Cedric The Entertainer and Neal Brennan, and next will next appear in the biopic Reagan, starring Dennis Quaid, set to be released in 2022.
