Originally from New York, Dr Brian started his “life of comedy” while attending preschool in Tampa, Florida. In his own 4th-grade words “behind our house, were some really big sticker bushes, but one day I fell in the prickers oh boy was I in trouble! I was screaming like crazy!” He continued, “I saw a German shepherd and I started to follow it to the middle of town! My mom and dad went frantic so they drove down town and saw me.” (King, 1981, unpublished manuscript). The rest is pretty boring and poorly written, even by fourth-grader standards.

Dr Brian somehow overcame an untreated case of ADHD and the lure of German shepherds to become a psychologist with a specialization in human sexuality. He has led many research projects, written papers, and presented at national conferences regarding his research on s-e-x. As a quick glance at the classified ads will surely indicate, Dr Brian found few job openings with the title of “sex researcher” and therefore opted for less impressive job titles as “Professor”, “Consultant”, and “French Fry Technician.”

In the early 2000s, he later added “Advice Columnist” to his resume’, writing the humorous relationship advice column “Ask Dr G” for various independent publications.

Now living in Los Angeles and realizing that he had it right the first time, Dr Brian decided to take his brand of humor to the stage as a stand-up comedian. His formal comedy career began in 2009, and he quickly developed a unique style that’s half professor, half idiot, and all smart-ass. He was the founder and producer of the highly-reviewed Wharf Room Comedy show. He also produces the annual Bay Area comedy competition "Walk The Plank" and can be seen at all the comedy clubs around the country, sometimes on stage.

He is also a fan of hip-hop, vodka martinis, and girls that wear skirts in the winter (although this has less impact in California). To date, he has not used a sticker bush in his stand-up act.
