Bryan Branly grew up in Modesto, California and kicked-off his career interning at both "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and CNBC while studying at UCLA. After getting his BFA in Film and Television, Bryan added several shows to his resume including "The Conspiracy Zone with Kevin Nealon," "The Arena with Jesse Ventura," "The Apprentice," "Tavis Smiley," "The Sharon Osbourne Show," "The Swan," and "Real Time with Bill Maher."
In 2005, Bryan found himself back at "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," this time as Talent Coordinator, helping with booking everything from exotic animal handlers to people with bizarre talents. He also volunteered to stand in when producers needed someone to help rehearse various bits for the show, a gig that eventually landed him in front of the camera. Now Bryan hosts "Backstage with Bryan" for "The Tonight Show" website. His celebrity interviews, blogs and behind the scenes access give fans a unique perspective they can't get anywhere else.
