CONNIE BRYAN: COMEDIAN, WRITER & MUSICIAN
HEY EVERYBODY, thanks for checking out the web site! On the left nav bar you can click on music demos to hear some of my music samples. Or just scroll down to find a large selection of my standup comedy and impersonations, including PARTS ONE through FOUR of a new, very funny and informative film documentary I recently completed on the open mic standup circuit in L.A., San Francisco and Sacramento.
It's a four part documentary series featuring clips from my act, as well as several other funny comics that caught my attention along the way. It also contains a portion of my rare and priceless interview with my childhood idol, comedy legend Jonathan Winters, who passed away in April of 2013 and will be greatly missed.
Below the documentary segments, you will find many of my standup demos and comedy sketches, including impersonations of talk radio's Dr. Laura Schlessinger and Howard Stern, and my impersonation of Larry David from HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm", and a clip from my very special interview with my childhood idol, comedy legend Jonathan Winters. (You can also find all my standup and comedy sketches at Youtube/conniebryan.)
I'm a professional musician, songwriter, editorial writer and standup comedian in Sacramento, California. I'm originally from Orlando, Florida, where I was a midday talk radio personality and comedian/instructor for the Improv Comedy Traffic School.
I used to give my traffic school classes a "practical education". For example, whoever it was who started this B.S. that when making a left turn, you have to look "left, right, and then LEFT AGAIN"...clearly must have had OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER! You started off looking left, correct? So if you have to look LEFT AGAIN, shouldn't you have to look RIGHT AGAIN?? And then shouldn't you have to look left AGAIN?? When does it ever stop??
I would always remind my female students in my classes that if you are ever pulled over for suspicion of DUI at night...Remember, it is often dark on the side of the road, so be very careful to make sure you understand WHICH TUBE the officer wants you to blow into!
For the past 10 years I have produced and hosted my comedy/variety cable access TV show "The Connie Bryan Show". The program aired in Santa Barbara from 2002 to 2008, and is currently airing in Sacramento, California for the last 4 years.
I finally decided to move from Santa Barbara because it was so expensive there..."HOW EXPENSIVE WAS IT?"...It was so expensive that the Motel 6 couldn't even afford to "leave the light on for you" anymore! It was so expensive that the Santa Barbara Mission started requiring a "TWO DRINK MINIMUM" for Eucharist.
Hope to see you at one of my live performance dates soon...including "THE CAPITOL BLUES JAM" which features my local Sacramento jam group performing all your favorite Classic Rock and Blues from the 50's to the 80's... If you are a musician and would like to join us, email me at connie[at]conniebryan[dot]com or check out my calendar page on the left nav bar for upcoming dates and locations!
