A native of Southern California, Brendan K. O’Grady first honed his skills as a stand-up comedian on the mean streets of the Austin open mic scene. He’s been a featured performer at comedy clubs and theaters all over the country, as well as at such big to-do’s as The Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival, the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, New Orleans’ Hell Yes Fest!, and Austin Sketch Fest. Brendan also appears every Saturday night as co-host of SURE THING, one of Austin’s most popular and acclaimed weekly stand-up showcases.
As a member of ColdTowne Theater’s extended family of goofballs, Brendan has also improvised with The Scrimshawshank Redemption, written and performed with the cast of The Hustle Show, and talked to dead famous people on the live chat show An Historic Evening with Brendan K. O’Grady. Despite this busy schedule of diverse comedic interests, he still finds time to watch 6-12 hours of television a day.
