Brendan grew up in suburban Sydney. Leaving school at 16 to pursue a career in graphic arts, he quickly became quite a problem, drawing cartoons of his fellow workers that were a little too close to the bone for their liking.
Surprise, surprise, Brendan had to go.
For some reason he dropped his pens & pencils & became a landscaper & bricklayer. Always clowning around on building sites, writing graffitti on anything & everything, it seems he was destined for a career in humour.
In 2000 Brendan made his stand-up comedy debut, which in his own words was "absolutely perfect....everything went wrong!" It could only get better from there & it certainly has. These days Brendan has quite a string of credits as both a stand-up comic & cartoonist.
He performed at Splendour In The Grass 2006, JJJ Cockatoo Island Fest 2005, Woodford Folk Fest 2002-2006, Sydney Comedy Store, The Last Laugh Comedy Club, Melb & just about every comedy club around.
Brendan has appeared on "Stand Up Australia", and his stand up work has been aired nationally on JJJ radio.
He has worked with some of the best including Akmal Saleh, Arj Barker, Greg Fleet, Gary Who, Steddy Eddy, Wil Anderson, Kitty Flannagan, Puppetry Of The Penis & loads more.
Brendan has also been MC for rock bands such as the Hoodoo Gurus, Rose Tattoo & Jimmy Barnes & even dressed up as a priest & worked a 'confession booth' for 300 people (who were on ecstacy & vodka so they told him everything) at a corporate Christmas party on a floating pontoon on Sydney Harbour.
His cartoons have been published nationally in newspapers & magazines such as The Big Issue, Nova, The Byron Echo, The Nthn Star, Insight, Wingspan, Nimbin Goodtimes, Arena, Rabalais & more.
In 2006 he featured in comic tv commercials for Uncle Tobys, NSW State Lotteries & The Brisbane Motor Show (which won an industry award!)
