About Bryan Tucker

Bryan Tucker is a stand up comedian and sketch actor, but he's mostly known as a comedy writer. Bryan has written for some of the top TV sketch shows in the past decade including The Chris Rock Show and Chappelle's Show. He is currently co-head writer on Saturday Night Live.

Bryan is a nine-time Emmy nominee, the recipient of a Peabody Award, and three Writers Guild Awards. A sketch that Bryan wrote for Chappelle's Show ("The Race Draft") was picked as #12 on Nerve and IFC.com's "50 Greatest Sketches of All Time." The New York Times said Bryan's Black Jeopardy with Tom Hanks sketch "wasn’t just the best sketch of the “S.N.L.” election season. It was some of the best political analysis of the campaign."

Before he broke into TV writing, Bryan was a performer who played over 500 shows around the country as a stand up and as a player in the sketch/ improv group Selected Hilarity. Bryan still does stand up around New York.

Bryan is co-head writer in his twelveth season of Saturday Night Live. He lives in New York City with his wife and two children.
