Mike Brian

WRITER. PERFORMER. MASTER OF AWKWARD SILENCES.

@themikebrian

Mike is a comedy writer and performer based in New York City.

He is the co-founding member and executive producer of the sketch comedy group Backdoor Barbecue, as well as the late-night style talk show At the Moment with Mike Brian and Maureen Kuhl. He is also the creator and host of Chuckles for Children, an annual holiday-themed variety show that is put on to raise money and toys for a local Queens-based charity during the holiday season.  

Across the vast inter-webs, he is a Contributing Writer for the comedy and satire website RobotButt.com. He has also been published on The Second City Network.

Mike has studied comedy writing and satire with The Second City and sketch comedy and long-form improvisation at the Peoples Improv Theater and the Upright Citizens Brigade.

When Mike’s not writing comedy, he’s convincing his co-workers that he 100% reads the newspaper for business purposes…not writing jokes. Follow some of his shenanigans on twitter @themikebrian.
