Brian Miller
(not just a Stand-up).

Stand-up, Comedy Writer/Actor, Workshop Facilitator.
Experienced in: Directing, Production and Sound Engineer.

Brian’s comedy career began in college way back in 1995 when he started writing sketches. He was fortunate enough to be offered his first paid acting work a year later at a tourist visitor centre in the highlands. Since then he has gone on to a wide variety of roles including: Acting, Writing, Stand-up Comedy, Workshop Facilitation, Directing, Production and Sound Engineer. Brian has written a number of sketches, a couple of plays, and a sit-com for television.

Brian claims that comedy has always been a major part of his life. At age 11 he was kicked out of school play for ad-libbing. According to the teacher he was ‘not taking it serious enough’.

Brian has a sharp wit, and usually see’s the funny side in most things, which is sometimes at the annoyance, and at the expense of, his friends and co-workers.

Brian’s ultimate aim is to find the perfect sketch team, or double-act which he can be part of. He has set up a Facebook Page for anyone interested in collaborating with other comedy writer’s, performers, film-makers etc., with one main aim; to make comedy sketches. Anyone interested can request to join the group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thecomedykrew/
