Fantasy Comedy is a show that will feature the best comics in the business and will also be catered to Baseball/Football fans. Each show will include promotions and prizes from the LA Dodgers (still working on getting this), and in the fall will feature live Fantasy Drafts and Leagues.
Brendon Small (born Feb. 15, 1975 in Springfield, Illinois) is a stand-up comedian and co-creator, writer, star, and music writer for UPN's and later Cartoon Network's Home Movies which has now completed production. Small graduated from the Berklee College of Music, where he began his love affair with speed guitar.
In Home Movies, he portrayed the lead character, an 8-year-old aspiring filmmaker, also named Brendon Small, and a number of other, more minor characters. Early episodes of the show featured squigglevision, a style made famous by the cartoon Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, produced by Soup2Nuts, the same company that produced Home Movies.
In April 2005 the Sci Fi Channel announced Small's latest show, Barbarian Chronicles, a half-hour animated ensemble comedy. It will be produced by Small and Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Small is also working on the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse, which premiered August 6, 2006. He is also doing several voices in Season 2 of The Venture Bros.
Small posed for a pictorial that appeared in the (cover-dated) April 2006 issue of Playgirl magazine, as part of a humor-themed issue. AdultSwim.com (the official website of Cartoon Network programming block Adult Swim, on which Home Movies airs) reported on March 7, 2006, that Small posed wearing "nothing but a Viking helmet"; the Playgirl website further described a "strategically placed Viking helmet", indicating that Small's genitals were not exposed in the pictorial.
Brendon Small currently resides in Los Angeles, California with his dog, Ernie.
Join host Steve Byrne and band leader co-host Owen Benjamin on Friday and Saturday for Air Force Fun - the show to end all shows (and we only say that because it has such a late time slot)! They’ll welcome friends and fellow comics to wrap up the festival happenings with a show of improv and no-holds barred, free thought, all within a talk show format. Steve will also join Owen, Roy Wood Jr. and Ahmed Ahmed as the Sullivan & Son Comedy Tour comes to Zanies on Thursday, May 15th.
Steve has risen through the ranks of the comedy world to become one of the industry's most respected, innovative and sought-after performers. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Steve was born to a Korean mother and an Irish father. His unique background has given him the base comedic material for his first television show, Sullivan & Son, a half hour comedy on TBS, which is returning this summer for its third season. His third hour-long comedy special, Champion, will debut on Netflix in May 2014.
