“Brian Boshes (pronounced Boe-shay) knows too much about how things really work to ever be an optimist. Still, if you ever need someone to quote lines from any of the three “Back to the Future” movies, you’ve found the right comic. Rising quickly in the Seattle comedy scene, Brian’s humor speaks to the hopes and dreams of any person who is smarter, shorter, or stranger than his peers. Each time he takes the stage, Brian holds up his own unique lens to the world and asks that you view it along with him. He recently competed in the Seattle International Comedy competition and was awarded “Best Up and Coming Comedian” by SeattleComedy.net. Brian hopes to one day entertain in front of large audiences that share his views unquestionably.”
About the Comedian
I first started thinking about becoming a stand-up comedian when I was 12 years old. I was at my friend’s house and I had to borrow one of his bathing suits. I turned to his mother and quoted a line from “Seinfeld”: “I don’t want to put my boys where his boys have been!” I didn’t know why she laughed so hard, or why my mom was so upset with my behavior, but from then on, I knew I wanted to make people laugh for a living.
Later, I found a copy of Judy Carter’s “The Comedy Bible” in a store near NYU. On the train back to New Jersey (yes, I was living in New Jersey), I read it cover to cover. After moving to Seattle in 2005, I knew that it was time to officially start my comedy journey. Since that first open mic, I’ve performed all over the country, from Seattle, to Phoenix, to NYC. I’m proud to have opened for entertainers such as John Diresta, Bobcat Goldthwait, Ryan Stout, Chris Fairbanks, and Greg Behrendt.
You can catch me weekly working on new material at the open mic at Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland, WA.
