Neal Brennan is a multi-hyphenate talent in the world of comedy. Born in 1973, he's worn the hats of comedian, writer, producer, director, and podcaster throughout his career.

Brennan's most recognizable work is alongside Dave Chappelle. Together, they co-created and co-wrote the iconic sketch comedy series Chappelle's Show (2003-2006).

Beyond Chappelle's Show, Brennan's comedic fingerprints are on a variety of projects.

In recent years, Brennan has transitioned into more behind-the-scenes work. He served as a contributor on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and currently keeps busy with his podcast Blocks.
