Brian Bahe

Brian Bahe is a Native American (Tohono O’odham, Hopi, Navajo), queer stand-up comedian and writer originally from Phoenix, Arizona, now based in New York City.

Brian studied improv at The Torch Theater in Phoenix while attending Arizona State University where he earned degrees in English and Psychology. Shortly after graduating, he moved to New York City and began pursuing stand-up. His jokes touch on his cultural experiences growing up in Arizona and his present day navigation of New York City while being neither rich nor hot, all of which is told from an unheard perspective in comedy.

He’s performed at clubs and theaters across the country such as Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre NYC, Punch Line Philly, Punch Line SF, Good Good Comedy Theater (Philadelphia, PA), and Dr. Grins Comedy Club (Grand Rapid, MI).

He co-hosts and co-produces the stand-up showcase GRANDBABY every Tuesday night at the karaoke bar Baby Grand in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

He’s performed in festivals across the country including:

  • Los Angeles Diversity in Comedy Festival

  • Orlando Indie Comedy Festival

  • Motor City Comedy Festival (Detroit, Michigan)

  • Dallas Comedy Festival

  • Beast Village Comedy Festival (Des Moines, Iowa)

  • Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival (Columbus, Ohio)

  • Oak City Comedy Festival (Raleigh, North Carolina)

  • Gilda's Laughfest (Grand Rapids, Michigan)
