Brad Wollack stars in E! Entertainment's "Chelsea Lately" and "After Lately."

A two-time graduate of the University of Southern California (M.B.A. '09 / B.A. '00), Brad Wollack is an Emmy nominated television writer, producer and comedian.

Currently a writer — and regular roundtable guest — on E! Entertainment's hit late night series, "Chelsea Lately," Wollack has also appeared as a guest on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," as well as in a number of national commercials where he was seen happily pitching products for companies he's even at odds with politically. He is also a regular co-host on "After Party Live" — E!'s live post-award show coverage. Additionally, Wollack is also the co-executive producer, co-creator, and a co-star of the E! comedy series "After Lately" — a semi-scripted show about the lives of "Chelsea Lately" staffers — and he's co-thrilled about it.

As a stand-up comedian, Wollack tours nationally with the "Comedians of Chelsea Lately" and opens for the likes of Chelsea Handler and Kevin Nealon. As a contributing author to the #1 New York Times Bestseller, "Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me," Wollack has hit the road with Handler in 2011 as part of the 20+ city stand-up tour promoting the book's release. In addition to theaters nationwide, he regularly plays comedy clubs across the U.S. including the Hollywood Improv, the Laugh Factory, the Punch Line in San Francisco and Sacramento, and at Caroline's, The Comic Strip and Gotham Comedy Club in New York.

Wollack served as a sideline reporter on Comedy Central's "Battlebots: Season 4" and used to have an alter-ego, Woody Wittman, the clueless host of "The Hollywoody Show" on Comedy.com. "Woody" appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," hosted at HBO's "The Comedy Festival" in Las Vegas and has amassed upwards of 3.5 million views as a regular feature on YouTube.

Wollack's passion for television began in high school. After only one semester of interning at San Francisco's CBS affiliate, KPIX, the cocky 16 year-old figured he could make his own TV show. Hence, "Eye on the Bay," a community-access (read: public-access) program that highlighted the people who make San Francisco. The program garnered local and international media attention — yet, no viewers.

At USC, Wollack helped launch Trojan Vision, the university's student-run TV station. It was there he created his persona — "Big Red" — a comedic reporter who pestered the university's athletes and administrative officials.

This led to a two-year stint on Fox Sports Net's "USC Sports Magazine" program where he became the brunt of host Tom Kelly's (raging alcoholic) jokes. That was until he backed his way into "Stop Making Sense" — a pilot for FOX — in the spring of 1999. Needless to say, the program was not picked up (that's why you had never heard of him). However, he's been able to procure development deals with companies such as the Emmy Award winning, Production Partners Inc. ("Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Chris Rock: Bring the Pain"). He has also developed series for Fox Television Studios, A. Smith & Co. — including "The King of Wall Street" for CNBC starring investment guru, Jim Cramer ("Mad Money") — RJ Cutler, Warren Littlefield and the legendary, Norman Lear. Oh, and Brad's a blatant name-dropper.

As a writer/producer, Wollack received a 2004 Emmy nomination for his work on the "Wayne Brady Show." Additionally, he's written and produced for: MTV's "The New Tom Green Show," and "Parental Control"; FOX's "Jingle Ball Rock"; NBC's "Radio Music Awards"; Style's "Foody Call"; the comedic "Frank's Picks" segment for the "NFL on FOX Pre-Game Show" — for which he garnered his second Emmy nomination; and the 2005 E! Entertainment pilot, "That's So Hollywood" — a parody of entertainment magazine shows — which could've been great, but wasn't.

Over the past several years, Wollack served as the head writer and supervising producer for the Fox Sports Net's comedy-sports talk show pilot, "Regular Joes," and was a writer-producer for the popular E! comedy series, "The Chelsea Handler Show," as well as the Simon Cowell/A. Smith & Co./FOX collaboration, "Celebrity Duets."
