For one year, Neal attended film school at NYU.
Neal became friends with Dave Chappelle while he was a doorman at the Boston Comedy Club. ”We met in New York City at a comedy club in 1991, wrote a few jokes together but always hoped we could do something bigger,” Brennan said.
In 1995, Brennan started writing for his first show, Singled Out. In the same year, Neal wrote one episode of the TV series ”Bzzz!”
In 1997, Chappelle and Neal wrote the screenplay for Half Baked, a comedy film in which starred Guillermo Díaz, Harland Williams, and Jim Breuer. The film grossed over $17 million at the box-office.
From 2003 to 2006, Neal worked as a writer, producer, and director of Chappelle’s Show.
”The thing that I love about Chappelle’s Show is that it allowed Dave to be his entire self, to express his intellect, his anger, his morality, his silliness, his hypocrisies, his sadness, his blazing talent,” Brennan said.
Neal received three Emmy nominations for Chappelle’s Show.
In 2009, he directed the film ”The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard,” starring Craig Robinson, Jordana Spiro, Jeremy Piven, Ed Helms, Kathryn Hahn, David Koechner, James Brolin, and Ving Rhames.

In 2013, he directed ten episodes of the sketch comedy television series Inside Amy Schumer.
In 2014, his first one-hour stand-up special, ”Women and Black Dudes,” premiered on Comedy Central. ”Being able to write jokes is great, but you still have to get used to performing them and being on stage,” Brennan once said.
From 2016 to 2017, Neal performed in eight episodes of ”Legends of Chamberlain Heights.”
In 2017, Brennan was the Director of Daily Show Correspondent Michelle Wolf’s HBO special Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady. Also in 2017, he released his second one-hour stand-up special 3 Mics, on Netflix.
