FAKE BIO

Brian Scolaro was born in a log cabin in Eggplant, West Virginia in 1876. And was visited during the night by Three Shephards. They beat the shit out of him for six hours. His mother was a ghost pimp and his father was a washing machine. Brian went to High school in the Philipines, where he spent four years learning to become an asshole. He received notoriety when he discovered a cure for "sight" by poking people in the eyes. Brian was killed by a large bear when he was sixteen, but he did not let that stop his acting dreams. He moved to Hollywood in 1872 and now sells garbage under a bridge.

Growing up in NYC, he was the lead in several school plays in Grammar school and High school. Brian planned on acting as a career.

He chose to focus on comedy acting after his father showed him the Marx Brothers and Laurel and Hardy.

And during his freshman year of college his love of Bill Cosby and George Carlin pushed him to do his first stand up show -which was at Stand-Up N.Y. Comedy Club in Manhattan on January 14th, 1992.

It was around this time that Brian met Fog Horn Leghorn at a deli in Manhattan.

He promised Brian a part in his upcoming Broadway revival of "Death of a Salesman." But it went to Egghead Jr. instead.

Brian's college career, at the New York State University of New Paltz, was highlighted by a multi-media attack. His N.A.C.B. (National Association of College Broadcasters) nominated television situation comedy "Earp and Whitney" made him a mini-celebrity on campus. His popular FM radio comedy program "That Damn Show" made him a cult hero for the neighboring high schools. And his weekly column in the school newspaper "This Week's Crap" made him an enemy among school leaders.

Upon graduating college in '95, Brian became an intern for "Real Sex" on HBO. His job was to stand on a corner and radio the producer if cops were coming when they were taping people fucking in an alley. He also was an intern for The Comedy Channel (now Comedy Central). Tired of standing behind the camera with a bowl of jelly beans for the audience and watching other comedians and actors achieve their dreams, Brian quit and turned to stand up comedy full time.

At Caroline's Comedy Club, Boston Comedy Club, Catch a Rising Star, Dangerfields, The Comic Strip, and Stand Up NY, Brian honed his stand-up skills. His manager, Vincent Nastri, discovered him at the old Gotham Comedy Club in NY in 1995.

Then Brian became a priest and began marrying monkeys part time.

His first real acting job was a series of TV Commercials for "Wendy's." Soon after he was cast by famed director Sidney Lumet (Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico) to appear as a snobby television producer on A&E's "100 Centre St."

Then came the "Caroline's Comedy Club" show that kick started everything. Here he was grabbed up by agents and asked to do The New Faces Show at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in '99.

Brian then made a fortune helping hippos fall asleep.

He rose up in the stand-up comedy scene in New York by becoming a regular performer at the toughest and most prestigious club in Manhattan- The Comedy Cellar. Nightly he worked with (and sometimes followed) comics like Dave Chappelle, Dave Attell, Louie CK, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Patrice Oneal, Ray Romano, Greg Giraldo, Marc Maron, Sarah Silverman, and Colin Quinn.

In 2001, off of a video taped audition from New York, he was cast by writer Steve Koren (Click, Bruce Almighty, SNL, Seinfeld) to be a regular cast member for the NBC pilot "Everything But the Girl" with Tiffani Theissen. The pilot was beat to the line up by SCRUBS.

But NBC cast him right away on the second season of "Three Sisters" along side Dyan Cannon, David Allan Basche and AJ Langer. Brian moved to Hollywood for his first regular TV sitcom role and began acting on network television.

Brian then took a year off and retraced the route of Ponce De Leon.

Next, Brian was cast by Director/Producer Tom Shadyak (Ace Ventura/Nutty Professor) to be in a popular ABC pilot "Platonically Incorrect" with Tom Everett-Scott. Brian was then offered a holding deal with CBS in 2004.

Then in 2005, Brian was cast as "Stuart Miller" on the FOX sitcom "STACKED" by Steve Levitan (Just Shoot Me/Modern Family) and Jeffrey Richman, where he worked alongside cast members Pamela Anderson and Christopher Lloyd. "Stacked" ran for two seasons.

Then came the writer's strike. No shows were in production except reality ones. So Brian auditioned for Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" and he was finally invited back to the cable channel that started his career. This time not as an intern. But as a comedian. In fact, he closed the show.

He then appeared on "Late Nite with Conan O'Brien" and Brian was invited to shoot his own half hour special "Comedy Central Presents: Brian Scolaro". It was taped at the Millenium Theatre (the home of Steve Allen's "Tonight Show") in New York City in 2008 and aired in 2009.

Then tragedy struck as Brian, for a brief period, became a ghost cat.

In 1996, Brian met Brett Bisogno at the college radio station (WFNP) at the State University of New Paltz in New York. They decided to create a television show. "Earp and Whitney". It was nominated for Best College Comedy Program by N.A.C.B.

Brian's college radio show "That Damn Show" featured Brett and among others, Darren Zoltowski, Chris DiFate and Jason Greenspan. The show was a collection of sketches (both live and pre-taped), panel discussions, and phone callers. It was a hit with high schools in Mid-Hudson Valley area.

After graduation, the five of them formed a production company called Voodoowop Pictures. Way before youtube, the internet, and recordable dvds: they made compilations of VHS tapes of bizzare sketches in the vain of Monty Python and and passed them around the country. They even aired on public access television in Manhattan.

Brian penned a majority of the sketches and they now have over a hundred skits and films on youtube. And have been featured a few times. They often are described as "hilarious", "extremely different", "original", "insane", "unpredictable", "underrated", and "the best comedy channel on youtube".
