Barry Brewer

Plays "John"

Barry Brewer is quickly on the rise as one of Hollywood's most multifaceted stars. As an accomplished comedian, actor and musician, he is currently the star of BET's highly anticipated series Tyler Perry's BRUH. The half hour original comedy follows four college friends in their thirties as they navigate the world of dating, careers, and friendships in a present-day society. The show will premiere in 2020 on BET+.

He also recently released an inspirational album titled CONQUER GOLIATH, which he performed, wrote and composed. The Pop/R&B project is currently available on all major music streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, GooglePlay, and many others.

On stage, his live hour-long stand up comedy special, BARRY BREWER, CHICAGO I'M HOME, is available on many major platforms (Amazon, Apple, Vudu, BET+, etc). He also recently created, produced, and hosted the stand up special THE NEXT GENERATION OF STAND UP. Each episode will feature three rising comics in an effort to give a platform to the next wave of comedians in urban communities. Both were shot in his hometown of Chicago with the support of his community.

On television he has appeared in numerous shows including Kevin Hart’s GUIDE TO BLACK HISTORY, BET’s GAMES PEOPLE PLAY and BET’s COMIC VIEW, among many others.

Brewer is a native of the South Side of Chicago who emerged into the world of comedy in 2001. His multifaceted style and content make him comparable to the likes of comedians such as Jamie Foxx. Barry hilariously incorporates his artistry and musicianship into his comedic satire, leaving his audiences amused.

His innate ability to bring humor to high profile discussion topics and usually uncomfortable subject matter humanizes him. Brewer’s approach of blending jokes with substance has landed him access to perform at high profile comedy clubs and colleges across the globe.

Since shooting his first major comedy special, Brewer has worked to hone in on his craft by creating more meaningful content. He also continues to inspire those around him, most recently with the inception of his production company “Only Believe Entertainment.” In addition to his comedy, Brewer is a musician, songwriter and music producer. He has worked with numerous artists including Brandy, Ray J and Tank and has recorded two studio albums.
