PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

The world is discovering comedian Brad Upton after 36 years in the standup business. Brad was teaching the fourth grade and coaching high school track in Pasco, WA when he first stepped on stage in 1984. He quickly decided that he wanted to do standup instead, so he quit teaching in June of 1986 and never looked back.

In 2017 he taped a special for a brand new comedy platform called Dry Bar Comedy. Things would soon change in ways he never expected.  Dry Bar released a clip of Brad in June of 2018 about millennials that went viral in ways very few comedy videos have ever done. It had 12 million views in 48 hours, then 33 million views in 10 days. It sent his CD to number 1 on the iTunes Charts and had him trending on Twitter.  The world  became suddenly aware of this ‘new’ comedian.  That video today has nearly 90 million views and according to Dry Bar, is the most viewed standup video ever.

So how does someone catch fire in his 32nd year? The internet. Facebook, Instagram and TikTok have suddenly led millions of people to Brad’s comedy and they have discovered a comedian that has mastered the nearly impossible task of appealing to people from the ages of 18 to 80. No one has been more surprised than Brad; he has been very humbled by the newfound fame at this point in his career and is currently working feverishly all over the country to take advantage of his moment in the sun. After a rather significant health scare and diagnosis in the early summer of ‘22, Brad is grateful for this late career validation and everyone of you that read this far.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION




"Best Beatles Tribute on Earth" Rolling Stone



"1964"  focuses on the quintessential moment in history, when The Beatles actually played before a LIVE audience.  


The Beatles toured the world in the early 1960's, but now only a  precious few remain who actually saw them LIVE. Who actually felt the "mania" that brought them to world acclaim. Today, all that remains are a few scant memories and some captured images in pictures and on poor quality film and video.


 


"1964" meticulously re-creates the "MAGIC" of those LIVE Beatles' performances with artful precision and unerring accuracy. For those that never saw The Beatles LIVE and always wanted to know what it must have been like...this is as close as anyone could possibly get to...FEELING the MAGIC!








 


For over 30 years, "1964" has thrilled audiences with what is considered to be the most authentic and endearing tribute to The Beatles.


This has been accomplished by a  steady and  consistent cast of talented professional musicians, who painstakingly recreate the look, feel and note for note sound of an actual LIVE Beatles performance.

1964 The Tribute is not endorsed by or affiliated with Apple Corps, LTD.
