Roberts grew up on a farm in rural Illinois. This comical kid found his groove with live audiences and musical theatre became a passion.
At Christian college, Brent received a ministry degree and lots of disciplinary action. Starting a non-profit organization with a team of friends, he traveled the states acting sketches he developed as “sermons,” until he came out as a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community.
A layover in Las Vegas launched him on to stage and screen…and real estate. He sailed away as a cruise director, landing in San Diego, where he got sober - over nine years now.
He entertained thousands at a popular tourist park and dove into the film scene. Working on both sides of the camera magnetized him to film and television. An inevitable move to LA a few years ago has propelled him into great opportunities.
Brent’s roles have ranged from charming commercial husband to haunting sinister creeper, picking up several film festival best actor awards. He has written a series, features, and produced/directed short film projects.
He lives in North Hollywood and has a plant that probably needs water.
