At the age of nine, Brandon developed an interest in acting but, didn't get any auditions.
In 2006, he graduated from Las Positas College in Livermore, California. He had continued to unsuccessfully audition for plays and short films. Due to this, he made his own YouTube channel where he would write, direct, and star in sitcoms and sketch comedies, as this was the only way he could get a role. He soon fell in love with filmmaking. In early 2016, he was featured in an article for his college's newspaper.
Brandon has sold out theaters in Livermore, Vacaville and Hollywood, and has had his work presented at international festivals and at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
In January 2016, Brandon was invited to be a reactor in The Fine Bros. series 'YouTubers React'. The channel had previously reacted to a series of Vines based on the meme 'Try Me, Bitch', which is a clip from his video Grandpa Hates Valentines. As well as showing some of the Vines, the video also spoke about how Brandon was often uncredited in the Vines, causing no dramatic increase in his subscriber count.
In February 2016, Brandon confirmed that there would be at least one episode of a new series called 'Magic Funhouse', and that it will be produced to be a television series. There are likely to be six main characters, including a disabled woman, a fat black man, and a cop (as seen in some of his concept sketches). Comedy Central is the station likely to pick up the series.
