On January 25th, Brett and Mike welcome back our favorite short, bald and pasty actor and comedian, Jeremy Wieand. We featured Jeremy back on “Conversations” Episode 6 way back in 2015!

After playing Andy King for 100 episodes on the Family Channel Original Sitcom, Big Brother Jake, along with being cast on most major television shows in the 1990’s including Boy Meets World, Sister Sister and Clueless, he decided the laughs were not going to stop with the quirkiness of getting older.

Because of his lack of height… and hair, he’s always had a knack for witty comebacks and humorous anecdotes. If it’s a confusing, uncomfortable or embarrassing situation, chances are Jeremy’s been through it too and can help you laugh about it along the way.

Jeremy has been received by audiences with big laughs resulting in gigs at various comedy clubs and showrooms across the country, including The Comedy Store in Hollywood, Big Al’s Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory, L.A. Comedy Club and numerous Bonkerz Comedy Club locations and venues,  LVH(Formerly the world famous Las Vegas Hilton Hotel) in “Comedy After Dark Starring Anthony Padilla” and has opened for Comedic greats like Louie Anderson at the Plaza Hotel and Jim Norton with Dave Attell at the MGM Grand.
