HYPER-CHONDRIAC
CAST & CREW (click photos for larger images)
BRIAN FRAZER (Performer/Writer) is a former stand-up comic. After a decade of performing in six countries, he transitioned into television writing as one of the original writers on MADtv. In 2000, he met his wife, Nancy, while writing thought-bubbles on the pseudo-reality show, Blind Date. Brian’s magazine work includes writing over 35 back pages for Esquire, and the Hollywoodland back page for Los Angeles Magazine from 2006-2010. In addition, he writes regularly for ESPN, Psychology Today, and Details, semi-regularly for GQ and Men’s Health, formerly-semi-regularly for Vanity Fair and Premiere and not-at-all for The New Yorker. In 2006, Simon and Schuster bought Brian’s memoir, Hyper-Chondriac: One Man’s Quest to Hurry Up and Calm Down which is what this show is based on. Entertainment Weekly called it, “Hilarious and biting... Frazer’s reflections are distinct and laugh-out-loud funny” and it made EW’s “Must List” the following week. USA Today called Hyper-Chondriac, “Caustically funny, yet quietly moving.” The New York Post called it, “... a riotous romp through a head case’s attempts to find inner peace for his own bodily health.” And Ryan Murphy (Glee, Nip/Tuck) has optioned it for the last four years, which was way more exciting four years ago, but there’s still hope. Perhaps if there were more singing... Brian has also been a commentator on KCET’s So-Cal Connected and has a series about health on Everwell TV and Everwell.com. He recently switched his bank pin number from 54896773226040264 to 766455388281909834.
