Brian Sack is an American writer and actor. From 2011-2014 he was the host of The B.S. of A. with Brian Sack, a sketch comedy show on TheBlaze television network. [1]

He is the author of three books. The United States vs. Santa Claus: The Untold Story of the Actual War on Christmas (Simon & Schuster, 2013),[2] was a satirical look at the United States government's ham-fisted efforts to change the public opinion of Santa Claus.

His second book, The B.S. of A.: A Primer in Politics for the Incredibly Disenchanted (Simon & Schuster, 2011),[3] inspired the television show he hosted. His first book, In the Event of My Untimely Demise (HarperCollins, 2008)[4] consisted of tongue-in-cheek advice for his sons.

Sack served as a contributing author to the New York Times bestseller Arguing With Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government (Threshold, 2009) [5] as well as Cowards: What Politicians, Radicals, and the Media Refuse to Say (Threshold, 2009) [6]

Sack has written humor for Radar, The Independent, CRACKED, Glamour and McSweeney's Internet Tendency. His work appears in the Best of McSweeney's compilation Created In Darkness By Troubled Americans (Vintage, 2005).[7]

From 2006-2008 Sack appeared on the Glenn Beck program on Headline News. In his ombudsman role as "Public Viewer" Sack took Beck to task on a variety of subjects. He briefly appeared on the Fox News incarnation of the program before becoming the "Czar-at-Large" for Beck's internet webcast. He was also a regular on Headline News's Not Just Another Cable News Show.

As a voice talent Sack has appeared in numerous commercials and audiobooks as well as the video game Grand Theft Auto IV.

Sack and musician John Mayer collaborated on a comedy short titled The Paul Reddy Show. The half-hour comedy appears on Mayer's Heavier Things DualDisc. Sack's clueless "Paul Reddy" character was based on PBS mainstay Charlie Rose and peppers Mayer with outlandish and often absurd questions.[8]
