Brett Davis performs comedy under the guises of his many twisted characters on stage and on his live late night variety television show, The Special Without Brett Davis, which airs online weekly. He also is the increasingly frustrated and disturbed host of The Podcast For Laundry where he portrays a version of himself, horrifyingly obsessed with laundry.

He is also regular on Our Cartoon President and Mad Memes on Comedy Central.
