Brian Biancardi

Brian Biancardi is a writer, musician, and comedian. He hails from Angola, Indiana, famous for being confused with Gary, Indiana when he tells people that he’s from Northeast Indiana. After writing radio shows, videos, and taking way too many liberties with the character of Moncharmin in Phantom of the Opera, he moved to Chicago, graduated from DePaul University and started doing comedy at iO Chicago, the Annoyance Theater, and CiC Theater. Brian moved to Los Angeles in 2015 and has had a wonderful time performing standup, running open mics, and making loads of great videos online. You can find him performing with Friendo the second Sunday of every month or on Instagram @bebopbiancardi.
