Brian Noonan has been entertaining people with his comedy, radio shows and television appearances for over two decades. A comedy veteran, Brian has travelled from coast to coast, one step ahead of the law, much to the enjoyment of all kinds of folks, whether they were sitting in plush theaters, choking in smoky (yes, that used to be a thing) comedy clubs, celebrating a 7-10 split in a bowling alley lounge or licking their wounds on the Vegas Strip.
No matter his audience, Brian’s comedy is a relatable collection of stories and observations. Brian uses his own adventures, failures and foibles to hold a mirror to the audience creating a bond that his audiences carry with them.
No two of Brian’s shows are the same owing to a bad memory, a short attention span and a personal delight in going wherever his mind takes him.
Since this is a bio, it’s time for credits.
Brian is a host on WTMJ Radio in Milwaukee. He was also a longtime host on WGN Radio
