Not like that’s the worst thing they could say about a guy. “No, no, no,” he agrees. “I have come to grips with the fact that I may never top it.

What movie have you laughed at that much?” Delivering that amount of humor isn’t easy, but Brennan rises to the challenge every day. “I’m at the whim of my own ideas,” he says. “Comedy is the only profession where you wake up and say, ‘I have no idea whether I’m going to be able to do this today.’ ” Neal Brennan performs at Go Bananas in Montgomery Thursday through Sunday.
