Brandon Firla - Biography

Raised in Calgary, Brandon showed an early interest in the constant rejection, unpredictable income, and general anxiety disorder that only the acting profession could provide. Resilience, hard work, and sheer narcissism landed him lead roles on sitcoms Billable Hours and Little Mosque on the Prairie, as well as speaking roles in many other titles that you've probably never heard of. When not working, Brandon spends his time thinking about why he's not working more, and what he can do to his physical appearance to get more work. Between these periods of intense self-loathing, he writes and performs comedy with his brother. Together, the brothers wrote and directed the satirical musicals SARSical and An Inconvenient Musical. Both shows won Canadian Comedy Awards and Dora Awards and have subsequently gone on to relative obscurity and irrelevance. Brandon is a graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
