Brian Flaherty
Brian Flaherty
Brian shouts O-H! on the streets forgetting he is hasn't been in Columbus for five years and will often chatter about electrons forgetting that no one in the television industry cares about his wasted degree in Chemistry. Brian has worked as an Assistant Director for The Travel Channel, Food Network, A&E, MTV, and many others with and without acronyms. His first children's picture book Where The Subway Cars Go, illustrated by Andy Aidekman, is due out on shelves as soon as it gets published. He also does magic. Mostly in bars for free drinks which he hates drinking because he knows, no matter how much water he guzzles, he will get a hangover. The last time he was on this show he pulled a card out of his ass. He's still figuring out how to top that.
