He was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 1966 and became one of the lead reporters at the Globe in Washington, D.C. during the Johnson and Nixon presidencies.

After his first viewing, Brian thought the movie was a documentary, and was determined to become a Jedi. Although he quickly learned the truth, Brian never let go of the creative spark that "Star Wars" left him with, following the impetus to create first into directing and then into producing, working every job in between along the way. Brian broke through as a manager of comedians, most notably Dane Cook, before moving into producing with New Wave Entertainment and now Comedy Dynamics. Tune in for Brian's story, which he tells with humility and a unique sense of humor.
