Brian Lloyd is a comedian, writer and filmmaker from Queens, New York. He earned a B.A. in Journalism and Media Production with a Writing Minor from the University of Scranton, and his goal is to create content that makes people think and laugh.
Brian has written and directed two short-films: Swipe Right (Honorable Mention One-Reeler Short-Film competition, Official Selection: Independent Short Awards, Official Selection: International Shorts, Award of Merit for Achievement in Cinematography: Southern Short Awards) is a comedy that follows a lonely college student on a quest for companionship only to be catfished by a non-speaking teddy bear, and Boiling Point (post-production) is a heated late-night exchange between an underachieving son and his alcoholic father that reveals how guilt and blame has led to their less than desirable situation.
Brian served as President of Royal Studios at the University of Scranton where he executive produced, wrote and directed projects while spearheading the re-brand of the program away from public access studio driven work to more shareable content including the web-series S.P.U.D.S., a single-camera mockumentary style show that follows fictionalized on-campus student officers, which Brian developed as Showrunner. Under Brian's leadership Royal Studios earned tens of thousands of organic views across multiple social platforms with an audience base under 200 active followers.
In 2016, Brian sought an outlet for his creativity and launched Dirty Bubble Media. Under this banner, Brian has produced the Idiots Without Credibility Podcast (available on iTunes among other platforms), a fan-trailer/fan-edit videos YouTube channel and the previously mentioned short-films. Idiots Without Credibility also offers a platform for other young, creative talent by offering an opportunity to write for the satirical Idiots Without Credibility website, a brand that has earned thousands of page views. Brian is constantly looking to grow his team and expand his new platform. Currently he is developing a second podcast, a short-documentary and his first feature-length screenplay.
Currently, Brian works as Content and Operations manager in kids digital content.
Brian also performs stand-up comedy. He is based in New York where he's a late-night regular at Comic Strip Live. He's also performed at New York Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, and various alternative rooms and bars as he expresses his frustrations, insecurities and curiosities about himself and the world around him as a self-proclaimed bad millennial. Brian works clean, and tapes of his performance are available upon request.
