Backstory

Brandon was born and raised in Columbus, OH.  He was drawn to comedy after secretly memorizing Eddie Murphy’s concert films at an age that many experts would deem “inappropriate.” As a student at Xavier University, Brandon co-founded a sketch/improv troupe, supervised the theater’s student staff, and was president of the campus’ performing arts club. Brandon graduated with a BA in Public Relations in 2001, and auditioned for Shadowbox Live later that same year.


Theatrical Expertise

Anderson was selected to join the resident cast of Shadowbox Newport – the company’s satellite theater in the Greater Cincinnati area. He began his career playing a variety of supporting roles in original sketches, learning about comedic timing and presence on the job.

Anderson is now a popular performer on both the band and comedy stages, as well as a staple in the company’s full-length musicals and original metamedia productions.
