Brian O'Brian is an Italian-American series of television shorts airing on Disney Channel. The series is co-written and directed by Danny Kaplan and stars Brian Stepanek, who also co-writes; original score by Stuart Balcomb, and produced in Cologno Monzese near Milan, Italy. Individual episodes are quick comedy sketches, 2–4 minutes in length. Much like almost all of Disney's modern-day television comedy programming, the show uses a laugh track. The main character Brian is inspired by the physical comedy of such silent-screen greats as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
