Brendan O’Grady


Brendan is the academic among us. He is also the clown among us. Before joining the UPG team in 2016, Brendan was a college professor, teaching communication and media studies for the better part of a decade. Throughout that time, he also kept one foot in the world of professional comedy. The dude is a stand-up comedian, a veteran of big-name festivals all over the country and a regular on some of ATX’ biggest stages. He also runs SURE THING RECORDS, Austin’s own independent comedy record label, producing hit albums from local talent since 2014.

Now Brendan applies his creative chops and elite-level organizational and communication skills to keep every UPG project on time and under budget, while always maintaining a quality customer experience. Brendan is a graduate of Texas Tech University, but we let him work here anyway.
