Brett Stephen White (born July 6, 1984) is an improviser from Murfreesboro, Tennessee and based in New York City. He performs on the improv teams Bad Data, ImproVérité: The Documentary, Iron Ruckus and Daddy.

Brett was introduced to long-form improvisation on his second day living in New York when he saw Mother perform. He began taking classes at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in October 2006, where he met future teammates Katey Healy-Wurzburg, Matt Mayer and Jessica Wyant. He has studied improv under Ari Voukydis, Shannon O'Neill, Joe Wengert, Rob Riggle, Peter Gwinn, Michael Delaney, Chris Gethard, Porter Mason, Nate Smith and Amey Goerlich. He has also studied sketch comedy under Chris Kula and Liz Cackowski.

Brett interned for The Late Show with David Letterman in the Fall of 2006 and currently works for Wizard Entertainment as the associate editor for their conventions department.

Brett is obsessed with the comic book character Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man (the leader of X-Factor.) He often wears a home made jacket sporting the emblem of the Multiple Man. During a Chris Gethard 501 class, Brett gleefully used an exercise on physical support to force the rest of his class to play his duplicates as he lived out his dream of being the Multiple Man. It was beautiful to watch.
