Having been inspired by the comedy legends, Barry filmed his debut stand-up comedy special, Chicago I’m Home for a sold out crowd at the Studebaker Theatre, downtown Chicago. Written, produced and directed by Brewer, Chicago I’m Home is a one-hour stand-up comedy special that invites viewers to view life through Barry’s lens; as he recalls how his childhood and adult life merge with modern American society. Chicago I’m Home was released in 2019 and is currently streaming on Amazon Prime, iTunes, Vimeo and a host of other platforms.

In the summer of 2019,  Brewer produced and hosted a sold out, nationwide comedy tour with his counterparts, Big Jah and Minks; derived from the original viral series, When the Whole Crew Is Stupid. The videos’ success (receiving more than 25 Million views from the entire series) inspired Brewer to produce a national tour. Visiting nearly 20 cities, the tour showcased the group’s comedic talent and converted the internet fan base to an actual physical audience.

In addition to his film and television career, Barry is a talented singer, songwriter and music producer. He currently has two studio albums, Dive In and Conquer Goliath that he wrote, composed and produced. His talents have placed him in the presence of artists such as Brandy and Tank. Barry is also a gifted musician. He can often be found most Sundays playing the piano or organ at his church.
