Stand Up Comedy, Comedian
Stand up comedy from Brad Upton, it certainly is offbeat, but it can be tailored to just about any audience from fraternities to corporations. He has logged n over 2,300 performances in 28 states and 4 provinces, making his comedy club set one of the strongest in the nation. Traveling as many as 35 weeks per year and logging approximately 70,000 air miles per year has turned him into Seattle's top performer. This former fourth grade teacher has appeared on A & E's "An Evening at the Improv," "Comedy On the Road," MTV's "Half Hour Comedy Hour," and Showtime's "Comedy Club Network." Brad has also opened for recording artists such as Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton and is a regular for the Improv Comedy Clubs around the nation. An accomplished writer, Brad has sold stories to clients such as Sports Illustrated. Can a person who travels this much have other interests? Yes. In one of the oddest dual careers ever created Brad has just been named Assistant Men's and Women's Track and Field Coach for the University of Washington. After seven years as a volunteer assistant coach where he achieved considerable success with the school's hurdlers he will now coach the hurdlers, long and triple jumpers. Brad and his wife Julie have just recently become parents of a beautiful young son named Austin.
