Branson moved to New York from Washington DC in 2008, and has been doing comedy ever since. He's part of the surreal sketch wundergroup The Junk Brothers, and the name-ruining third member of We're Matt Weir. His film and television credits include work with The Onion, Nightcrawler, and Al Jazeera America. You can see him at The Magnet every Saturday with The Weave (a New York Times recommended show.)
He works in elementary schools all across the greater New York City area as an actor and director for The Story Pirates. With Story Pirates he has performed alongside Jon Stewart, Kristen Schaal, Jon Oliver, and even Lou Reed. You can listen to him performing with the Story Pirates for SiriusXM Radio's Absolutely Mindy! on Kid's Place Live where he lends his voice to such characters as Ghost, Raccoon Salesman, and a Toilet.
He's pretty sure he and George Fernandez went to the same guy for headshots.
