Comedian Brian Scott McFadden will be performing in Rockland County later this month. Recently the comic talked about his life and career with the Rockland County Times.
McFadden’s father was a comedian and voiceover specialist and his grandfather was in Vaudeville, and Brian Scott is following in their footsteps having worked as a comic for the past 15 years. It all started out in a Rockland County bar, whose name he doesn’t remember, but they loved him and though he bombed in his next appearance, McFadden knew show business was for him.
McFadden says the Turning Point Cafe in Piermont is a classy place and he finds the audience “cool” and sophisticated. He will be the headliner January 21 at Turning Point, working with comics Brett Eidmann, Emma Willman and Adam Oliensis, all great comics, says McFadden.
As for hecklers, “We get them all the time and I have material to deal with them.” McFadden said a seasoned comic learns to adjust to every crowd and is able to assess what material will go over best.
In addition to doing comedy he has done several voiceovers and was even in a film with Halle Berre. McFadden has also been on the Letterman show and the Late, Late Show.
