Second City Hollywood

Story-telling is something I’ve been doing on my Podcasts for years. It’s not always about the setup- and the punchline. I don’t do stand-up, it’s not my style of comedy anyway as I’m more of a character kind of comedian. This quality comes in handy with being a story-teller, a character actor, and now… behind the mic. Not always funny, maybe sad, definitely amusing, mostly uncomfortable, but most of all: Real Stories. I’ve been telling stories on the air but this time, I’ll be showcasing this niche, which is growing into a nation wide gig (mostly for reality stars & Instagram Podcasters) at a famous Comedy Club. People evidently will buy tickets to such an event and yes, this is what is next. Come see tell me a story a Second City in Hollywood. Show Date TBA.



So, when I pitched my new Podcast show to AfterBuzzTV, I didn’t fully grasp how empowering it could be to really get something off the ground. It wasn’t easy managing other personalities, producing content and being myself… truth is: I lost myself for a minute and it showed. Forced. Yes, I was “on” but after the storm comes a rainbow. It was my idea to begin with, so to be the only man standing is… FUCKING FANTASTIC. I’m excited to produce this podcast, lead it, and be the best. Its my show and its business, and It’s show business, kids. So, no hard feelings. Let’s do this. It’s Bravo Betch with HollywoodLian is available on APPLE Podcasts. Broadcasted LIVE on YouTube. Produced by Me & AfterBuzzTV.



HBO Sunday.

The day I’ve been waiting for is finally here: the Debut of Episode 2, Going to Town, for Camping, the HBO show I have a Co-Star on! I admit, I saw the episode on the big screen already at Paramount, so I knew what to expect. Obviously, not everything made it, some was left on the cutting room floor. Editing can go any way. I’m just grateful to be featured on such a high platform with incredible talent. We did so much improv, not much made the actual episode, but everyone is enjoying my Cameo on this unorthodox Comedy. My favorite part? My name on the credits at the end. Now that gave me FEELS. David Tennant & Jennifer Garner are everything on & off screen. Happy October!


The Premiere

Surreal. Full circle dream come true…… Last night we had the premiere of HBO’s Camping at Paramount Studios where the apartments I grew up in are right across the street. It was magical, the recognition felt rewarding. I feel very honored to be a part of something so special, like this Cast & Crew. Congrats to Us, Let’s Go Camping!!!!! Sundays, 10pm on HBO. Look for me in Episode 2, GOING TO TOWN. Enjoy.

Really enjoying working for Maria Menounos, being at AfterBuzz TV has taught me so many things about being consistent in my talent, craft, and business. I love what I do and it shows!

Real Housewives of Atlanta

So, after doing a season of co-hosting the Orange County Franchise…. the producers over at AfterBuzz TV have decided to give me the reigns and Host my own aftershow for the Atlanta Franchise!! Honestly, it’s been so fun. It was challenging and it pushed me to new boundaries. Leading is one thing… but leading while taking technical notes, keeping the panel on topic, keep the show at a steady pace, while being engaged and being funny is NOT EASY- but that’s the job and I love it so much. It’s been great hosting with this fabulous panel of women. The best of the best on Pop culture…. we’ve even had Megan Bomgaars, Cast member from the Emmy-award winning show, Born This Way on A&E. The season is winding down and I already have another show on the Radar for AfterBuzz TV (announcement coming soon.) but for now…tune in next sunday for the Season FINALE!!!! THIS SUNDAY APRIL 1 at 9pm @AFTERBUZZTV & @HOLLYWOODLIAN



The Main Host

Very thankful for my seat over at AFTERBUZZTV… it’s my sixth week hosting the Real Housewives of Orange County Aftershow and its honestly been so rewarding and so much. fun. Love the panel and my peers, the audience has been very welcoming and I’m having fun interacting with the Loyal Fans of BRAVO TV. Tonight I got to run the boat myself, Hosting the show along with T. Orlina. He was my Michelle Visage tonight and it gave me a whole new rush! I’m using this opportunity to get more representation, a management team… so I’ve been buzzing all over town talking about my new gig. I also started some new comedy classes as well… to polish the work. stay humble, work hard, and BE THE BEST PERSON IN THE ROOM. I’m telling you when i say I’m OUT TO WIN this year….i AM. IM WINNING!!  WORLD TRAVEL, NEW TV GIG & spending the holidays in NYC again….. HASHTAG BLESSED! GRATEFUL! BRING IT UNIVERSE! BRING ME MY DESTINY.



Entertainment Host

The Lowdown with Lian became practice for a new destiny… an introduction to something I’ve always had a passion for, Hosting my own show on Pop Culture. The Lowdown was short, never went viral, but it was enough to get some attention. I conquered DragCon and also landed myself an Entertainment Host position at AfterBuzz TV! Full panel after show on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County. Hosting is a passion of mine because it allows me to showcase myself and the passion that I have for Pop Culture. I’m super excited about this new creative endeavor and I couldn’t be happier. Make sure to Follow me on the social media platforms for all clips, photos, and live video stories. @HOLLYWOOODLIAN
