Brett Goldstein

Brett Goldstein was born in London and graduated from the University of Warwick with a degree in Film and Feminism. After briefly relocating to Marbella, Spain, to work at a strip club his father had purchased, Goldstein turned the experience into a stand-up comedy show called “Brett Goldstein Grew Up in A Strip Club”, which he performed successfully at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This led to three more solo shows at the festival before he made his 2013 TV debut in the Ricky Gervais series, Derek. In 2015, he wrote and starred in the British comedy Superbob as a superhero looking for love. Goldstein was initially employed by Ted Lasso creator Bill Lawrence as a writer and executive story editor, but he became convinced he could play the role of footballer Roy Kent after helping to develop the character in the writers’ room, and made a secret audition tape for Lawrence, who cast him. Goldstein also co-created the recent sci-fi anthology series, Soulmates, and has recorded over 150 episodes of his hit podcast, “Films To Be Buried With – with Brett Goldstein.”
