About

Brent Carpenter started as a volunteer at the Phoenix Arizona PBS station back when video tape was still used. Now he gets scared when his shows come to him on hard drives. Brent worked on Jay Leno's first cable special ever, did a Showtime music series with Herbie Hancock, continued as a producer on The Larry Sanders Show, and was nominated for both an Emmy & a Grammy alongside Robert Altman for their Jazz '32 feature.

He has most recently been involved in the sitcom world directing shows for Fox, NBC, Disney, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and Showtime.

He has also been the sole director for all of Ringo Starr's All Starr Band concerts for the last 15 years. Ringo is the one who anointed him with the title "Freelance Nuisance". Brent wears it proudly...
