When anyone says that Brad Garrett is one of the giants of comedy, it is likely meant both figuratively and literally.
Garrett stands at an impressive 6 feet 8 ½ inches tall, and he has the personality and talent to match his impressive stature.
No matter how many times you have seen him on the television screen, it won't compare to actually getting theater tickets to see him live.
Brad Garrett is a California native, growing up outside of Los Angeles. Comedy was virtually always in his sights as a
young man, and he made it through less than two months of college at UCLA before dropping out to pursue comedy full time.
He started earning his stripes at comedy clubs in Los Angeles, and caught a break in the mid 1980s when he won the grand championship
on Star Search.
After winning Star Search, Brad Garrett was appearing on television along with opening for stars like Diana Ross, Frank
Sinatra and The Beach Boys. In the 1990s, he landed perhaps one of his most famous roles, as Robert Barone on Everybody Loves
Raymond. Since the show wrapped, he has continued to work on television along with booking
comedy tickets for live shows.
