Brent Kenton Jordan (born August 15, 1963 in Santa Ana Heights, California) is an American author, best known for writing a book about his 20 years working as a bouncer at such clubs as Cheetah's Topless Club in Las Vegas.
Jordan was the fourth of five children. His mother was a horse trainer/riding instructor, and his father Dave Jordan was head football coach at Grossmont College in San Diego. Jordan never graduated from high school, having dropped out in the 9th grade. During his teens he worked as a Kenpo Karate instructor, and then later served in the U.S. Army. After being discharged at age 21, he opened a karate school / gym and took weekend security jobs at local nightclubs. This developed into a career as he worked as a bouncer, DJ and sometimes manager at various night clubs and strip clubs, including Pacers Strip Club in San Diego, Crazy Horse Saloon and the Palomino Club.
In 1991, he took a job at the just-opened "Cheetah's" strip club, where he worked until 2003, and was one of the witnesses in a major FBI sting against club owner Michael Galardi and several members of the Las Vegas and San Diego city councils. In 2004, he wrote a book about his observations of the case and the general flow of life in a strip club. As of 2006, the book is in its fourth printing, and Jordan is frequently cited in the media in stories about the adult entertainment industry.
Jordan is also trained in Muay Thai kick boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and NHB fighting. He occasionally competed, with his most notable match being a close loss against Chuck Liddell, who was later named as UFC Light Heavyweight champion.
