Brad Upton

by Christian Carvajal for OLY ARTS

Comedian Brad Upton writes about everyday life, a 28-year marriage and anything else that pops into his head. He’s a past winner of the Las Vegas Comedy Festival. His ease and likeability on stage have made him popular with corporate clients and the cruise ship industry, for which he’s a headline performer. He was a frequent opener for the late Joan Rivers and served as field announcer for the 2014 USA Track & Field Championships in Sacramento. For the last eight years, he’s been singer Johnny Mathis’ opening act.

Seattleite Lott describes himself as “a dad, husband, weirdo, college grad, dork, comedian, eater, lover, hater and political theorist.”

Rodney Sherwood (host):
