Wiki

David Brenner (born February 4, 1936) is an American standup comedian, actor, author, and filmmaker.

Born and raised in poor areas of Philadelphia, Brenner found comedy a major source of relief from the daily trials and tribulations he faced in his youth. His neighborhood has been one of the top-ranked crime neighborhoods for almost 90 years. But, unlike most of the children in the neighborhood, he managed to stay away from too much trouble. His sense of humor led to his immense popularity in his school years, winning Brenner the title of "Class President" every year. After high school, he attended Temple University, where he majored in mass communications, graduating with honors.

Making his national television debut on the The Tonight Show, he has since become the most frequent guest on the show, with 158 appearances. Since the majority of his jokes deal with current events, mostly political, he has become somewhat of a political pundit, and has been a guest on several news-oriented shows in the recent past, and was also ranked #53 on Comedy Central Presents: 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time."
