Stand-up, Comedy Writer/Actor, Workshop Facilitator.
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/
‘Stand up is okay, but being part of a sketch team is much more fun…you have someone else there with you.’
