Brian grew up in the Boston area where he used to teach middle school language arts. He abandoned that glamorous life to perform improv and sketch comedy at Boston's Improv Asylum. He then moved to Chicago where he worked for The Second City, first traveling with their National Touring Company, and then writing and performing four revues as part of their Mainstage Cast. At UCB in Los Angeles, Brian has lots of fun performing with The Smokes and Soundtrack. On youtube, you can see Brian saving Shakespearean heroines in the Sassy Gay Friend videos he wrote. Other acting credits include The Informant!, HBO'S Funny or Die Presents..., and Childrens Hospital. Brian has also written for Are You There, Chelsea? and Happy Endings. Both shows were cancelled. Brian blames himself.
