A Conversation With Brandon Kyle Goodman

About Keynote Speaker Brandon Kyle Goodman

From bringing diverse, powerful characters to life on the screen, to writing scripts for one of the most successful series on Netflix, Actor, Writer and Advocate Brandon Kyle Goodman has emerged in the entertainment industry as a powerful force with a voice to be reckoned with.

As a writer, Goodman’s work will be showcased this fall throughout season four of Netflix’s hit animated comedy series “Big Mouth.” Led and created by Nick Kroll alongside Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, the series follows a group of pre-teen friends who find themselves working to navigate both the wonders and horrors of puberty, with the help of some unfiltered, raunchy hormone monsters along the way. Goodman co-wrote episode 407 alongside Mitra Jouhari and also signed on to write and voice on season five as well as the Big Mouth spin-off “Human Resources.” “Big Mouth” is slated to stream new episodes on Netflix in December 2020, following an unprecedented, three-season renewal announcement from the network.

On the film front, Goodman recently starred in Netflix’s feature film “Feel the Beat,” opposite Sofia Carson. He was a scene-stealer as the outspokenly brace, queer character Deco. Additional acting credits for Goodman include starring as Andy, an eager father-to-be in Amazon’s successful rom-com anthology series “Modern Love,” opposite Andrew Scott, as well as a role in the Amazon pilot “People Just Do Nothing.” He has also appeared as one of the leads in Fullscreen’s digital series “Alive in Denver,” and can be seen in the independent features “The Blackout,” “The Relationtrip,” Hulu’s “Plus One,” and Blue Fox’s “Papi Chulo,” alongside Matt Bomer and Wendi McLendon- Covey. Goodman is also recurring in season eleven of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” alongside Larry David.

Goodman is proud to be a nonbinary, queer Black leader and staunch advocate for Black lives. Goodman’s name and messages were launched into the limelight throughout the summer of 2020 as his vulnerable, informative Instagram videos regarding racism in America went viral, quickly solidifying him as a go-to resource for individuals seeking educational and inspiring content, while detailing a personal look at Goodman’s experiences growing up and living Black in America. Today, Goodman’s content has received over millions of views and counting. With an intention and drive to continue conversations and meaningful action on behalf of Black lives that extend beyond the news cycle and social media algorithms, Goodman is set to launch two separate podcasts, the first titled “Black Folx,” a one-on-  one conversation-based podcast produced by Starburns Audio and IGTV series featuring Black personalities of various identities. Created by Goodman, each episode aims to elevate and amplify the experiences of Black folx, with the intention of providing a safe, healing and therapeutic space for the Black audience watching or listening; and for white/non-Black folks, Goodman hopes these conversations will provide an opportunity for increased exposure to authentic Black experiences, and to widen a deeper understanding of systemic racism that has existed in our country for centuries.

Additionally, Goodman has announced the launch of “Do the Work,” a weekly podcast produced by Sony and hosted by Goodman, discussing all things race and personal relationships. Each episode features an intimate conversation between Goodman and two people who know each other well: family, old friends, lovers or colleagues. Throughout each episode, guests will finally have real, deep and meaningful discussions about race and examining biases that will ideally teach us all to be better allies in our daily lives. Both “Black Folx” and “Do the Work” will premiere Fall 2020.

Born and raised in Queens, New York, Goodman discovered his love of acting throughout high school, before attending the Tisch School of Arts at New York University (NYU). Upon his graduation from NYU, Goodman joined a musical sketch comedy group called “Political Subversities,” which featured weekly sketch and song performances by many NYU alumni about what was happening in the zeitgeist of pop- culture and politics and was even created into a web series. It wasn’t long before Goodman packed his bags to move to LA full-time to pursue a career as both an actor and writer in Hollywood.

When not in front of the screen, Goodman loves to seek out great new eats, work out, binge “The Real Housewives,” and discover great, new vocal performances on YouTube. Goodman continues to actively speak out against the injustices that have been plaguing the Black community for decades and encourages his followers to donate to the Innocence Project, The Bail Project, Black Trans Travel Fund, and Black Lives Matter. Goodman is currently based in Los Angeles, CA with his husband and their puppy, Korey.
