You may currently see Brian on the web and you just missed him live on stage. He appears in the web series TRAINERS, a mockumentary web-series that follows a group of personal trainers at a fitness gym. It's shot in a format that is similar to that of PARKS & REC and also THE OFFICE, as it takes the audience behind the scenes of a place that most of us know of as the gym. Just go to allensfitworld.com. You also just missed him on stage in San Francisco in the ensemble production of the San Francisco Premiere of DEAR HARVEY. This tribute to the late Harvey Milk (on whom the 2008 Gus Van Sant film starring Sean Penn was based) played at the New Conservatory Theatre Center January 26th through February 24th, 2013.
