Brian O’Sullivan

“Brian O’Sullivan is a singing-comedian from Los Angeles, California. Inspired by artists “Weird Al” Yankovic, Stephen Lynch, and The Bloodhound Gang, O’Sullivan uses clever lyrics and catchy tunes to deliver his punchlines.

Brian has performed at over 300 schools across the country, and in 2015, he was voted “Roommate of The Year” by his two roommates.”
