Kevin Brennan — a former ‘SNL’ author and comic — is making mild of Matthew Perry‘s passing in an actual ugly approach … which can communicate to why he is not extra profitable in showbiz.
Kevin — who had a 2-year stint writing for the famed sketch comedy present approach again when, and who was as soon as a rising comedian — took to Twitter this weekend after information of Perry’s dying broke … and posted an extremely insensitive message mocking the late ‘Mates’ actor.

He wrote, “DROWNED IN A HOT TUB. HAHAHAHA” … this whereas linking again to our story.
The tweet wasn’t considered by very many individuals — KB solely has about 5,900 followers or so anyway — however it definitely left a nasty style within the mouths of parents who did see it … with many individuals calling him out within the feedback and bashing him for making a joke out of it.
Whereas Kevin is not almost as related as he was within the ’90s/early 2000s … he nonetheless has a well-known connection to mainstream Hollywood by his youthful brother Neal Brennan — from whom he is estranged. Neal, in fact, is the co-creator/author of ‘Chappelle’s Present.’
Neal and Kevin had a falling out years in the past — and the youthful sibling went on to forge a stable path for himself. Neal’s written for tons of exhibits, and even has his personal Netflix comedy particular now … whereas Kevin hosts a fairly obscure podcast, and does gigs right here and there.
It bears repeating … Neal is NOT near Kevin — and primarily based on interviews NB has achieved of late, the place he was requested about his relationship with Kevin … you possibly can inform it is a delicate subject. Based mostly on this response to Perry alone, you will see their personalities are very totally different.
So, in fact, Kevin’s crude remarks listed here are by no means a mirrored image of Neal — who, so far as we will inform, minds his enterprise and focuses on his work … and who would not appear to have talked about Perry or ‘Mates,’ for that matter, very a lot in any respect publicly.
Kevin seems to nonetheless fancy himself standup-adjacent — recurrently commenting on mainstream comedians that Neal undoubtedly rubs shoulders with … though, what he pulled right here is much from a laughing matter. Neal would not appear to have reacted to his brother’s put up.
We have reached out to him for remark, nonetheless … to date, no phrase again.
