Get ready for a laughter-filled episode of "So What Do You Really Do?" with host Deadair Dennis Maler! In this episode, the spotlight is on the comedic powerhouse and Emmy-winning writer, Brian Kiley. As a monologue writer for Conan O'Brien and Ellen Degeneres, Brian has been tickling funny bones for years. 🤣

Brian Kelly has appeared numerous times on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Late Night with Conan O'Brien.”

Brian was a staff writer for Conan O'Brien for 27 years. In that time, he won a Emmy Award for Writing in a Comedy/Variety Series in 2007 and was nominated sixteen times. He was a staff writer on the final season of "Ellen" and won a Daytime Emmy in 2022.

Much to his surprise, he was even featured in the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle. (He has never completed said puzzle.)

He has had a recurring role on the Cartoon Network's "Delocated" and has been on "The Bonnie Hunt Show", “Comedy Central Presents”, “Dr. Katz Professional Therapist”, “The CBS Morning Show”, “Spotlight Café”, “Caroline's Comedy Hour”, “Comedy On The Road”, the Showtime Comedy Club network, the TBS Conan writer's special and “An Evening at the Improv”.

In this episode, Brian and Deadair Dennis reminisce about the 1980's Boston comedy scene, the WGA writer's strike, and performing together at comedy festivals and online shows. They also explore the peculiar world of Zoom comedy, where laughter echoes through the digital void. 🤪
