Going through life with a reckless and undeserved confidence isn’t recommended, but it can leave a person with a lot of really good stories to tell. At least it seems to be Brett Hiker’s formula. Whether it’s faking his way into an archaeologist job, waking up on top of a fast food restaurant in Central America, or breaking George Clooney’s hand in a barn door; Brett Hiker and wild stories seem to be on star-crossed paths. Lucky for comedy fans, he’s pretty good at telling them. Hiker’s origin story starts with a decade bouncing around working class jobs and getting fired every 6 months for spending more time making his coworkers laugh than doing any sort of actual work. This all ended in 2008 when he found a job that would pay him for doing exactly that. A career in comedy has taken Hiker all over North America and afforded him the opportunities to travel overseas to perform in front of large foreign audiences that both laugh with and AT his boorish American ways. He is also a stalwart of the North American festival circuit and has showcased his comedy at prestigious events like the Aspen, Limestone, and High Plains comedy fests. Hiker’s stand-up made its TV debut in 2011 on the After After Party) and has since had his comedy featured on Fox, the CW, Comcast and dozens of morning radio shows across the country. From growing up deep in the Rocky Mountains, to living a fast paced city life on the East Coast, to countless months spent abroad as an expat; Hiker’s broad appeal affords him the opportunity to perform across the country in clubs, theaters, bars, alt rooms, and even G-rated shows for old people and republicans. His jokes and stories have been described as “red neck jokes for hipsters” and “hipster jokes for red necks”, really depends on who you ask... Brett is an avid fan of dive bars, legos, large dogs, soft drugs, snowstorms, carharts, whiffle ball, Toaster Strudels, silly hats, open containers, vintage hockey teams, pillow forts, bad movies, day drinking, breakfast food, and nothing else. Although Brett was raised by mountain folk in Colorado, he now lives and tells jokes in NYC where against his will he gets meaner and funnier by the day.
