Quinta Brunson    

Writer, Actress & Stand-Up Comedian; Best Known for Producing & Starring in Buzzfeed Video Content

Quinta Brunson is a writer, actress, and comedienne. Quinta started studying comedy in Chicago at the Second City. She moved to LA in 2013 and practiced Improv. Her 2014 viral series The Girl Who's Never Been on a Nice Date launched her into viral fame, eventually leading her to a relationship with BuzzFeed Motion pictures. She now develops shows in traditional and digital entertainment and performs stand up around the country.

Brunson was a Video Producer and Development Partner at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures until 2018. The Philadelphia native joined BuzzFeed in early 2015 and within a year, she was the first Buzzfeed Motion Pictures producer to be signed under contract to write, direct, star, and produce her own projects within the media company’s studio division.

Brunson was one of the youngest video content creators at BuzzFeed Motion Pictures, the video-production arm of the media company responsible for more than 5 billion monthly video views. She wrote, produced, and starred in videos that showcased her perspective on life — from what it’s like going on a nice date for the first time to the pitfalls of being the only black friend.

Brunson's first show was Broke, a series she wrote and starred in about three friends who move to Los Angeles with big dreams and empty wallets. Since then, she has starred in and written for numerous shows, such as "iZombie," "Lazor Wulf," and "Quinta vs Everything." She is also starring alongside Gabrielle Dennis and Ashley Nicole Black in "A Black Lady Sketch Show."

In addition to creating short viral videos that have raked in more than 138 million views on BuzzFeed alone, Brunson has inked a production development deal that allows her to create original scripted series and specials, and share in the profits of sales and distribution.
