About Brett Gelman:
Since Variety named him one of its “10 Comics to Watch” in 2010, Brett Gelman has shown film, TV, web and live audiences how he “commits hard to the weirdness” of every role with a signature intensity and fearlessness that continues to earn praise from critics and peers alike.

 A member of the Upright Citizens Brigade, he recently entertained television audiences as writer/performer/ringleader of two Adult Swim specials “Dinner with Friends with Brett Gelman and Friends” and the follow-up “Dinner with Family with Brett Gelman and Brett Gelman’s Family.”  Both specials were such huge successes that they are already in pre-production for the next installment!  His television credits include the critically acclaimed FX comedy, “Married,” opposite Nat Faxon and Judy Greer, Judd Apatow’s Netflix series, “Love,” Comedy Central’s “Another Period,” Starz’ critically acclaimed series “Blunt Talk” opposite Patrick Stewart, and NBC’s “Go On” opposite Matthew Perry.

Migrating to L.A. in 2008, Gelman has since been in high demand.  He has appeared on a breadth of other TV series including those for HBO (“Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Bored to Death,” “Funny or Die Presents”), NBC (“The Office”), IFC (“Comedy Bang! Bang!”), Comedy Central (“The Kroll Show”), CBS (“Bad Teacher”), MTV (“The Inbetweeners”) and FX (“The League”), among other broadcast and cable networks.  His diverse work in feature film has included roles in the independent comedy Awful Nice, the 2013 biography Jobs, the recent indie comedy Someone Marry Barry, the comedy romance Watching the Detectives, and the Columbia-distributed comedies The Other Guys and 30 Minutes or Less.  His most recent film, “Joshy” premiered to rave reviews at Sundance.

 Brett can most recently be seen in the critically acclaimed series “Stranger Things.” Additionally, he can be seen in David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" reboot. He recently wrapped shooting the second season of the critically acclaimed Judd Apatow series, “Love” and Amazon’s “Fleabag”. He is finalizing his third special for “Adult Swim”. His indie drama “Lemon” premiered at Sundance and was picked up by Magnolia Pictures for North American distribution. Critics at SXSW singled out “Lemon” as one of the standout features of the festival. He recently finished performing in the Molière’s play “Tartuffe” in Boston.
