Simply put, few people in entertainment are not only as prolific as Brian Volk-Weiss while still quality-centric.

Back in December 2018, I first had the pleasure of interviewing writer, director, producer and studio head Brian Volk-Weiss by phone. He was then promoting “Discontinued,” a show on The CW, which conceptually was not too far off from his Netflix docuseries “The Toys That Made Us.” The founder and current CEO of Comedy Dynamics – which has produced stand-up specials and/or comedy albums for the likes of Marc Maron, Ali Wong, Kevin Hart, Jim Gaffigan and Bob Saget, to name just a few comics – then had credits on more of the albums nominated for a “Best Comedy Album” GRAMMY Award for the prior few years than not.

Fast forward a few years and Brian Volk-Weiss is still not only heading Comedy Dynamics, creating shows for multiple outlets and directing acclaimed comedy specials, but he is also CEO of The Nacelle Company. The Nacelle Company made headlines earlier this year with the launch of 2 podcasts, including “Gates McFadden InvestiGates: Who Do You Think You Are?” And speaking of headlines made, Volk-Weiss and Dwayne Johnson have teamed for “Behind The Attraction,” which is set to premiere on Disney+ on July 16, 2021.

Simply put, few people in entertainment are not only as prolific as Brian Volk-Weiss while still quality-centric. I explored this idea and plenty more within our follow-up conversation on July 7, 2021, as embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
