BioBryan Erwin was Jack and Edie’s "Seventh Catholic Accident". Being the youngest of seven was "Awesome" said Bryan in a recent therapy session. "All the hand-me-downs, getting the last of the food, having six older siblings threaten your life daily, good times." Bryan’s whole existence hangs on one simple theory: you must first fail in order to succeed or simply "Fail Forward". Bryan has worked very hard at failing. He worked in radio and was fired from the same station three times. He managed bands and lost thousands of dollars. He also was married. As he explains it, "I lost my job, my wife, my house, and my haircut. She was really good at cutting my hair." Bryan has since moved to Hollywood from Wisconsin, remarried and welcomed his first child. He’s looking forward to failing at all of those as well. Bryan’s satirical style has been featured at legendary Los Angeles comedy clubs such as The Comedy Store, The Improv and The Laugh Factory. His unique storytelling ability translates to any audience, and has provided a natural progression into various television and movie projects. The universal appeal of Bryan’s comedy is apparent; he talks about life…an ongoing series of awkward, uncomfortable moments. As a principal in PanicMonkey Productions Bryan writes, directs and produces original character-based comedies like "The Fives" (set at a Midwestern city police station) and "SalesGuys" (about a team of radio salespeople) attracting top industry names such as Louie Anderson and Barry Katz ("Last Comic Standing") as producers, with Bobby Lee (MadTV) and Mindy Sterling (the Austin Powers movies) as talent. Bryan has also appeared as a principal on MTV’s "Kickin’ It Old School" ,a reality version of the film "Old School" In 2004 Bryan created the cult internet movie "Super Precinct" for IFILM and since then has seen repeated viral success with over 10 MILLION views on The Todd Conner project and the Policeman vs Fireman series. Bryan is also the Writer and Creator of the wildly popular underground newsletter The Sausage Quarterly, a newsletter about guys. It was voted best toilet reading on location in the film business. Bryan has performed stand-up comedy alongside Louie Anderson, Dave Attell, Frank Caliendo, Brian Regan, Jim Gaffigan, Lewis Black, Christopher Titus, and many others. you can visit any of his websites for more information: www.bryanerwin.com, www.sausagequarterly.net, www.policemanvsfireman.com.

MusicAll music is great. Discovering new music no matter the genre or era is a wonderful experience. All time guilty pleasure THE OUTFIELD.
MoviesCan take forever to watch when you have a kid. I am a fan of the classics, especially if Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant is in it. My permanent rotation has High Fidelity, A Mighty Wind, Used Cars, Office Space, The Party, Early Pink Panther, Better Off Dead, Animal House, Stripes, Cannonball Run, Caddyshack, Traffic, Almost Famous, Planet of the Apes (Original), Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Bad News Bears 1 & 2, and a tie for my guilty pleasure Flash Gordon 1980 and Batman! 1966. Both written by the same guy. I obviously love his style.
BooksI like colors and sounds. Send Tanner your condolences
