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.

Heart of Darkness: The world's most important live event
Featuring the live band Wages!
A staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene, Greg Barris is the creator of Heart Of Darkness: a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music and fringe scientists that just recently had its 20th sold-out show in a row, at Union Hall in Brooklyn! Heart Of Darkness has been a frequent TimeOut New York critic’s pick, and has also been hailed by the Village Voice and the New Yorker as well — and BrooklynVegan calls it “NYC’s most awe-inspiring comedy/variety/brainz shows.”
