Co-Owner | Comedy Writer
At the age of 25 Jimmy Brogan realized he had a fear of heights and gave up on his dream being a human fly. Instead he became a comedian starring in a sitcom called Out of the Blue (ABC), hosting Laffathon (Showtime) and You Asked for it, Again (Family Channel), and did his standup on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson and Late Night with David Letterman. He then went on to be a writer on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno for 9 years. Pretty good for any comedian, but sometimes late at night as he drives by a tall building he still gets the urge to strap on the suction cups and start the climb.Stand-up comedian Jimmy Brogan wrote for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno from 1992 until 2001. What he calls the funny years. He also booked all the comedians that appeared on the show, many of whom went on to great success, including Ray Romano, Kevin James and Carrot Top. He apologizes for Carrot Top.
