Comedian Barry Brewer’s One Hour Special Set to Bring Gut Busting Laughs
By Sentinel News Wire
Published February 11, 2019

Barry Brewer was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago; Barry Brewer began his comedic career in 2001. He has since traveled the country and abroad performing at the nation’s top comedy clubs and colleges. Barry has performed on a number of high profile platforms including television appearances on national networks such as Comedy Central (Gabriel Iglesias Presents…), BET (Comic View) and TvOne (Who’s Got Jokes). Barry Brewer is a star on the rise and one of Hollywood’s fresh, new entertainers to watch.

Chicago, I’m Home is a one-hour stand-up comedy special that invites viewers from all across America to take a look inside Barry Brewer’s lenses, as he tells the narrative about how he grew up on the South Side of Chicago. From sharing the history about growing up with his mom, to explaining his upbringing and survival in Englewood (known to be one of Chicago’s roughest neighborhood), Brewer becomes completely transparent about how growing up in the “the other Chicago” made him into the successful comedian he is today. He even touches on a few cultural and societal topics that we are often afraid to talk about.
