Brett Dean Craig is a fictional character on the Australian comedy television series, Kath & Kim. He is portrayed by Peter Rowsthorn.

Background[edit]

Brett works at Computa City and is married to Kim Craig (Gina Riley) from the start of the series till the end.[1] He lives with her and later, their daughter, Epponee Rae in their unit; however most of the time Kim is living with Kath Day-Knight (Jane Turner) & Kel Knight (Glenn Robbins), as they always are having problems. Brett's marriage to Kim contains no actual bond between the two; thus causing Brett to cheat on her on multiple occasions, even with Kim's second best friend, Sharon.

At Kel & Kath's wedding, Brett is Kel's best man. Brett has a good relationship with Kim's mother Kath, and her husband Kel. To save their marriage, by the second season, Brett and Kim announce they are trying for a baby. Kim gives birth to Epponee Rae Charlene Kathleen Darlene Craig in the Season finale.

Brett has a good friendship with Kim's second best friend, Sharon Strezlecki. Initially Brett was first dating Sharon before he and Kim met. Sharon has been trying to get Brett back ever since. In the fourth series, Brett sleeps with Sharon. Kim walks in and sees them. Even though Kim is married to Brett, Brett still loves Sharon. He reveals this at the very end of the fourth series. In one episode, Kath Day-Knight, Brett's mother-in-law, has a dream into the future. She dreams that Kim and Brett have broken up, and that he is married to Sharon. Sharon and Brett have triplets! Brett sometimes refers to Sharon as 'Shazz'.

Brett loves cricket and Australian rules football and would rather sit at home watching it than helping Kim pick out an outfit for his daughters first day on Neighbours.

In Da Kath & Kim Code, Brett is attracted to his boss, Kelly. He cheats on Kim; but she takes him back (as always is the case). However, despite the reunion, Brett continued the affair. Brett strives for greatness while working for Computa City (Harvey Norman) during the course of the series, however by the end he is ultimately fired and currently works at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.[2]
