About
Brian T Shirley has performed all through out the USA, Canada, The Bahamas and Japan for over 25 years. He has worked well known Comedy Clubs (The Comedy Zone, The Funny Bone, etc.), Country Clubs, Special Events (Opened for Huey Lewis & The News), Corporate Events, Cruise Lines (Carnival), Private Parties and Military Bases (Fuji & Okinawa Japan Marines).

Brian has a wide range of subjects he covers in his act. From growing up poor, his military experience, relationships, money making schemes gone bad, to partying and beyond. Brian also has a popular character "The Fine Southern Gentleman" who he has a script for, but sometimes the character takes over and goes off script for some hilarious results. As a matter of fact, Brian weaves the audience into his show and no one can tell what is scripted and what's Improvisation. Brian also has written 3 comedy books and uses stories from his third book in his act as well. Thus Brian fuses Menology, Character Acting, Improv and Storytelling into one very funny stage act.

Brian suffered a massive heart attack on 9/11/2018 and had quadruple bypass surgery on 9/12/2018. Once Brian was on the road to recovery he wrote material and has started embarking on his "Comeback from a Heart Attack" tour which has been called "funny and inspirational.

He continues his stand-up. Improv, public speaking and acting. He's been seen in several short films, web series and feature films.

Brian also hosts "BTS Entertainment Corner" on the 'What's The Story?" Radio Show, so he can promote himself and his public events to his audience. He also has created and hosts a WEB TV Series called "BTS On The Road" which shows what it is like to be a touring comedian. These endeavors have also contributed to Brian's onstage & offstage appeal. He can fit his act to a PG, PG-13 or more adult rating.

Brian can provide a sound system for a minimal fee for his show. He can play music before the show, during dinner and after his show for dancing for a minimal fee as well.

Brian was a friendly out going person. Wished he had gotten members more involved in show, especially kids.

Brian was extremely accommodating and willing to do whatever was required to connect with the audience. He performed without a warm up act and was extremely funny and professional in doing so! Thanks for helping to make our event a success Brian, it was much appreciated!
