Growing up, Brian was attracted to comedy – constantly watching re-runs of The Carol Burnett Show. Later on, he discovered the humor of Victor Borge, Bill Cosby, Jonathan Winters, Monty Python, Tom Lehrer, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, Mike Nichols and Elaine May. These comedy greats helped him develop an impeccable sense of timing and intuition about what was inherently funny, and how to make an ordinary situation spiral into hilarious un-reality.
Reviews from the Tucson Weekly have been positive:
for Once Upon A Mattress: “…remarkably manages not to come off as milquetoast as Dauntless; he’s charming and boyish, but not childish, and not the dud that this character can make of actors.
for All In The Timing: “Construction worker, played beautifully by Brian Scott Hale. …My favorite performances were by … Hale as (possibly) the adult Lindbergh baby.”
for Sweet Charity: “… is able to depict both vulnerability and over-the-top hysteria as Charity’s fiancé, Oscar.”
for The Odd Couple: “… this production … makes the most of the scene in which the Spanish brothers who live upstairs come to dine with Florence and Olive. Dennis Gallardo as Manolo, and Brian Scott Hale as Jesus, are simply wonderful, utterly believable and unselfconsciously hilarious. They are immigrants from Barcelona, and their native Castilian Spanish is always on a collision course with the colloquial parlance of the New Yorkers. This is richly comic stuff, and these guys nail it..
for Back to the Past: “…Sharing their talents with an otherwise veteran cast were … Brian Hale as Principal Ledbetter. There is no doubt that the director looks for actors known as triple threats, that is those who can act, sing and dance.
Although comedy comes naturally to him, these skills also help him present incredible dramatic performances. He can walk the thin line to elicit laughter from the audience in one moment, then pull gasps, or tears from them the very next.
