Brendon Burns is an Australian comedian who has mostly performed in the UK. Burns' stand-up routine is typified by an aggressive, confrontational delivery.
Burns' television career began, alongside Sacha Baron Cohen and Ricky Gervais, as a performer on Channel 4's late-night spontaneous comedy show The Eleven O'Clock Show. He has subsequently appeared as a presenter on the ITV show I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, and as the conductor of masterclasses in stand-up (again on ITV).
Burns appeared on ITV2's Comedy Cuts.
Brendon won the if.comedy award for his show So I Suppose This Is Offensive Now at the 2007 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Also at the 2007 Fringe, Brendon Burns appeared alongside Adam Hills and Sammy J in a stage version of Breaker Morant by The Comedians' Theatre Company directed by Phil Nichol.
Burns' albums include:
- Buckets and Sulphur
- Misspent Childhood
- Not for Everyone
- Brendon vs Burnsy
- All My Love All My Rage
- Sober not Clean
- The Thinking Mans Idiot
He famously gave out Magic Mushrooms (then legal) to an entire audience at the Glastonbury festival as part of a documentary being filmed by friend and film maker Paul Provenza.
