Still working on that hot first release.



Funny, as defined by the “Brett Butler American Heritage Dictionary,” is the distance between reality and absurdity. It is a distance Butler has been traversing all of his life. As the oldest of two children growing up in Long Island, New York this straight “A” student had to assume the head of household early on as a child of divorce. He learned early on that his intelligent sense of humor became a useful refuge not only for him but friends and family as well. He brought that keen sense of wit with him to college when he attended NYU’s arts program and began to make friends immediately. Shortly, after obtaining that degree he learned that his humor could provide a service and a lot of fun for everyone involved. Having grown in the comedy hotbed of Long Island Brett was inspired by the likes of such Long Island natives as Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld, and Howard Stern, by such shows as “Kids in the Hall”, “Saturday Night Live”, and “Monty Python’s Flying Circus. He began carving out his own niche on the sketch comedy circuit in 1996. He was working in and around New York with different troupes. While building broader audience and sharpening his comedic skills, his troops auditioned for the likes of “Saturday Night Live”, “Comedy Central”, and “ Mad TV”. Arriving in Los Angeles in 2006 on the heels of a west coast tour with his latest sketch troupe, ”Blahm”, at the Improv Olympic, he found himself longing for something different, a group that would echo his own unique comic voice and beyond. A group with the ability make people laugh, but also think. A group that reflected the new climate of Americans, not defined by race, nor not afraid of it either. A group more defined by their human experiences. A group that could share their naked thoughts with the world.
He searched all over Los Angeles for the elements of this new voice. He searched the bars, the stages, the clubs and the internet. What he found was much more than just fellow comedians. He found actors, stand up comics, dancers, filmmakers, writers, and more. He found fellow journeymen who also dance and play in the area between reality and absurdity. He found “Slow Children Crossing” Alem Brhan Sapp, Saudia Rashed, Tiffany Thomas, Ivy Lindsey, and Destini Meshack.
