Brian Atkinson

Brian Atkinson is a comedian, an all-around nice guy, and a horrible person. His guy next door look gives way to surprising twists – like when he provided voices for PBS Kids and acted in a Lifetime Movie Network movie, as a serial killer, in the same studio, on the same day. A former radio personality, his voice might be the first thing you notice, but his confidence, and engaging storytelling will keep you laughing. Brian Atkinson makes jokes, but only the finest artisan, hand-crafted, farm-to-table-saw jokes.

Brian is a 2023 World Series of Comedy Wildcard 1st Place Winner and has headlined at clubs, corporate events, churches, and fundraisers across the country. He’s opened for notable “Bobs” like Bob Nelson, Bob Smiley, and Robert (Bob) G. Lee, and performed at Dr. Grins at the B.O.B. Brian has also appeared with Jeff Jena, Kira Soltanovich, Happy Cole, Leslie Norris Townsend, Tommy Ryman, Chris Young, Andy Beningo, and Dave Williamson. Born and raised in Chicagoland, Brian won the Audience Favorite in The Funniest Person in Grand Rapids, MI, where he now calls home. You can find him on all the socials @BrianAcomedian.
