“Quality of life” is a phrase Brett Leake uses a lot.  In his youth, the Virginia native was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.  But he pushed the disability aside and has become a successful comic, gaining national recognition on The Tonight Show, Entertainment Tonight, and the American Comedy Awards.  Brett has a 100% “clean” show and delivers a positive uplifting message about living a life filled with joy and humor.  After his performance on the Tonight Show, Jay Leno said, “He broke up the whole room.  People realized here’s a man with a disability and he’s not gonna’ let it bother him.”
