Steve Cooper talks with comic Brian McDaniel. Brian can be seen in the new Entourage movie, as a regular contributor on CBS’ The Talk and of course he was a correspondent on TMZ for 8 years.
He grew up in Prince George’s county Maryland, riding the bus to school where comedy was the ultimate factor in deciding social status. Mostly, he just tried to avoid being embarrassed by the popular kids and the foulmouthed bigbanged girls that followed them. But he was learning by osmosis, picking up on what was funny and what was just swagger, which jokes made everybody laugh, and which ones just unified the cool clique in their superiority. He couples this experience with the pop culture expertise of a TMZ veteran to write material that’s incisive, ridiculous, and surprising that he performs all over the Los Angeles area and on the road.
