Neal grew up in Pennsylvania and Illinois with nine older siblings.
After dropping out of NYU, Neal Brennan worked at the Boston Comedy Club, where he met Chappelle. Neal Brennan started writing for his first show, Singled Out, in 1995.
After six months of working as a doorman at the Boston Comedy Club, in 1992, Brennan first performed stand-up at 18 years of age. He later recounted: "I got no laughs"; he didn't perform stand-up again until 1997. Brennan also wrote for The Source magazine in 1992.
In the mid-1990s, Brennan moved to Los Angeles. In 1995, he became a writer for the dating show Singled Out, hosted by Jenny McCarthy and Chris Hardwick. This was followed by writing jobs for the game show Bzzz! in 1996, the sketch comedy-variety show All That from 1996 to 1997, and the teen sitcom Kenan & Kel in 1997.
In 1997, Brennan and Dave Chappelle collaborated for the first time on the screenplay for the film Half Baked. The film was released in January 1998 and starred Chappelle, Jim Breuer, Harland Williams and Guillermo Díaz. Half Baked was a commercial failure and received mainly negative reviews but has become a cult classic.
Four years later, Brennan and Chappelle came together to co-create, co-write and co-executive produce the eponymous sketch comedy Chappelle's Show, which premiered in January 2003. Brennan said that he and Chappelle read the book Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live (2002), by Tom Shales when they started writing sketches for the show, and found the book very helpful. The duo wrote the show's sketches with minimal outside help and agreed never to divulge who was responsible for writing which sketch.
Brennan directed some sketches in the show's second season, including the sketch featuring Chappelle as musician Rick James. Brennan was nominated for three Emmy Awards in 2004 for his work on the show as a director, writer and producer. By the end of its second season, Chappelle's Show was Comedy Central's highest-rated program.
Chappelle's Show was doing well and Chappelle had signed a $50 million deal in 2004 to produce two more seasons, but he abruptly left the show in April 2005 prior to the premiere of the show's third season. He left without warning Brennan or others of the show's crew. As a result, the premiere of season three was delayed; Brennan compiled the remaining sketches and aired them in July 2006 as the "lost episodes."
In a 2006 interview, Brennan referred to the period of the film's release as "probably the worst year of my life, creatively and personally." In an interview that same year on Inside the Actor's Studio, Chappelle recounted how he and Brennan lost touch with each other after the release of Half Baked, saying that it was "like leaving a crime scene".
In 2006, Brennan directed and co-wrote the made-for-TV movie Totally Awesome. Brennan directed the 2009 film The Goods starring Jeremy Piven. In 2011, he directed a series of commercials for the ESPYs.
As an actor, Brennan had small roles in the films Half Baked and Get Him to the Greek; he also appeared in various sketches on Chappelle's Show. Brennan has also written comedy material for the 83rd Academy Awards, as well as for Seth Meyers' speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2011.
In 2011, Brennan, comedian Moshe Kasher, and DJ Douggpound (Doug Lussenhop of Tim and Eric Nite Live!), started a podcast called The Champs. Kasher said of the podcast: "It's Doug dropping sound effects and beats over me and Neal kind of hosting an hour of ridiculous chat. We have a rotating black guy guest, there's a different black guest every week." Guests on the show have included actor/comedians Wayne Brady, Chris Rock, Mario Joyner, Shawn and Marlon Wayans, David Alan Grier, adult film star Lexington Steele, rapper Too $hort, and professional basketball player Blake Griffin. The show has strayed from its guest format on occasion with guests such as comedian and actor Bobby Lee, former pornographic actress Sasha Grey, former Major League Baseball player Jose Canseco and comedian/actor Aziz Ansari. In 2014 The Champs was named "Best Podcast" as part of LA Weekly's "Best of L.A." issue.
In 2013, Brennan directed 10 episodes of Inside Amy Schumer.
In 2015, Brennan developed and performed a comedy show, 3 Mics, in Los Angeles. He brought it to New York City in 2016, opening on March 3 at the Lynn Redgrave Theater. It was directed by Drew Barr. John Legend and his Get Lifted partners, Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorius, produced the limited engagement. The show has Brennan alternating among three microphones. At the first mic, he reads one-liners from index cards; at the second mic, he talks about dealing with depression and his relationship with his father; and at the third mic, he does traditional stand-up comedy.
In 2016, he became a regular writer and contributor to The Daily Show as "Trevor's friend Neal".
In 2017, 3 Mics was released as a Netflix original comedy special.
On October 10, 2019 he was featured in a 30-minute YouTube documentary created by SoulPancake in collaboration with Funny or Die called Laughing Matters, wherein a variety of comedians discuss mental health.
Currently, Neal Brennan is 47 years old. Neal Brennan will celebrate 48th birthday on Tuesday, October 19, 2021. Below we countdown to Neal Brennan upcoming birthday.
