An interview with world famous comedian David Brenner (DavidBrennerOnline.com). Beginning with his debut National TV appearance on The Tonight Show, where he went on to make the most appearances of any guest on the show – 158, he has continued to be the most frequent talk show guest of any entertainer. Today, his act is based on “very” current events and he is recognized as a political pundit, on news oriented shows, like CNN and The Fox Network.
He has done four HBO Specials, including his last one which was performed live with no safety net, “David Brenner: Back with a Vengeance” and proved once again THAT the Philadelphia native is still “the ultimate comeback kidder.”
But Brenner wasn’t always on a stage or in front of the TV camera. Before becoming a comedian, he enjoyed a successful career as the writer/producer/director of 115 television documentaries and headed the distinguished documentary departments of both Westinghouse Broadcasting and Metromedia Broadcasting. Brenner’s documentary work earned him a total of nearly thirty awards and citations including an Emmy Award.
