Guy Branum created and hosted truTV’s Talk Show The Game Show. The show is a hilarious mashup of two television formats that pits comedians and celebrities against each other. They compete for the title of “Best Guest of the Night.”
His recently published book, My Life As A Goddess, is a collection of side-splitting and illuminating essays. It was quoted as being “Wickedly smart, funny and witty” by Kirkus Reviews. Recently, it has made NPR’s 2018 Good Reads List, and Entertainment Weekly’s Must List.
You may also know him from his recurring piece, “No More Mr. Nice Gay”, on Totally Biased, with W. Kamau Bell. As well as serving as “Staff Homosexual” on Chelsea Lately. Not to mention his performance as Natalie Portman’s sassy gay friend in the feature film, No Strings Attached. Noticing a trend? Guy has also appeared on @Midnight, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, Road to Roast and Debate Wars.
Guy has spent three seasons writing for Hulu’s, The Mindy Project. He was even a producer during the show’s last season. A League of Their Own from Amazon, Punk’d and Awkward on MTV, Another Period on Comedy Central, Billy on the Street on truTV and Fashion Police on E! are some of his other TV writing credits. That means he’s watched the Grammys at Joan Rivers’ house. Jealous? Guy has also written culture and political commentary for Slate.com, Pitchfork, The New York Times and Vulture. His pop culture podcast, Pop Rocket, was named one of the best new podcasts of 2015 by iTunes. Guy’s debut comedy album, Effable, was #1 on iTunes and Billboard charts. The New York Times called it “a contender for the best comedy special of 2015.”
