Chris Bruss

VP of Branded Entertainment at Funny or Die

Chris Bruss is Vice President of Branded Entertainment for Funny Or Die and President of the newly launched commercial production company Gifted Youth.

Bruss has been with Funny Or Die since 2009, and during that time has helped build and define Funny Or Die’s award winning branded entertainment division. One of Bruss’ many accomplishments was implementing a more sophisticated plan for translating the process between the world of Ad Agencies/Brands and the comedy/content community. Since 2007, Funny Or Die has produced over 200 branded entertainment campaigns, and has produced hundreds and hundreds of branded entertainment videos. The division usually executes up to 10 campaigns per quarter.

In November 2011, The Hollywood Reporter named Bruss one of the top 35 Hollywood executives under 35, and recently he was appointed Jury Chair of One Show Entertainment.

Prior to working at FOD, Bruss worked in the Business Development group at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) – working with their digital team to help package premiere online video content (both branded and talent-driven) and working as an entertainment strategy consultant for emerging Web 2.0 start-up companies.
