Brad Dickson is a former writer for "The Tonight Show," a humor columnist for the Omaha World-Herald newspaper, a best-selling author of two books and a professional speaker. He's also written for the Los Angeles Times and L.A. Times Magazine. His writing has been called "an amalgam of Dave Barry, David Sedaris and Bill Simmons." He has never won an award unless you count the quasi Emmy he received when "The Tonight Show" was named "Outstanding Variety Talk Series."
