Born and raised in Glendale, Arizona, one would think that Brian would have a dry sense of humor…but seriously folks, it’s Arizona, he’s just trying not to be deported. Using physicality, impression, music and improvisation, Brian is one of the hottest comedians on the rise in the Southwest.
Having spent 20 years as an award-winning director, Brian stepped away from the camera to begin his career in comedy. He quickly found success in radio as the host of his own show, The BS Factor with Brian and Stephanie on the All Comedy Radio network. Brian gained national recognition when many of his sketches were featured on National Lampoon Radio on XM/Sirius.
For several years now, Brian has trained and performed with various improv troupes, including The Improvonauts that he co-found with comedian Mike James. As Brian’s comedy career gained momentum, stand up comedy seemed inevitable.
Brian's impressions, knowledge of pop culture and unique delivery style have made him an audience favorite. It doesn't matter what he's talking about, Brian puts a smile on everybody's face!
Brian is married with two children...and a dog named Turbo.
