Brad Einstein is a human being of marginal renown. Referred to as a "Brilliant Comedy Mastermind" by some very thoughtful exaggerators at Time Out NY for his work as the host and creator of Encyclopedia Commedia, he was recently selected by Crater Lake National Park to be The Fall 2019 Artist-in-Residence, for his different-but-similar work creating comedy/nature hybrid mini-docs.
He writes comedy, and has contributed to outlets such as Tru Tv's Billy on the Street, The 2018 & 2019 Tribeca Film Festival Awards, The Onion, College Humor. The Website. The Book., The Chicago Reader, and The Paper Machete. He also writes comedy for brands, working on ad campaigns and videos for Netflix's Springsteen on Broadway, Adam Sandler's 100% Fresh, for brunch-staple Snooze, and for countless brands you haven't heard of but maybe giggled at.
You may have also seen him on Shameless, Chicago Fire, or performing with The Second City National Touring Company, and a very heartfelt advertisement for a Crohn's Disease medication. He has won numerous web series awards (if those count), including "Outstanding Actor," 2017 LA Webfest and "Best Comedy Ensemble," Brooklyn Webfest 2017.
Brad quite likes the middle of nowhere, and his most recent work reflects his attempts at using comedy to change our conversations about conservation. Feel free to check them out @TreehuggersComedy on Instagram if you're so inclined.
Hello, I'm Brad. Welcome to some lovely, heartfelt, obligatory self-branding. I'm a comedy boy who loves trees, my dog, and doing silly bits in the woods. I've got a slew of projects in the works, check them out!
