Brian McCann (born August 16, 1965) is an American Emmy and WGA award-winning writer/actor/comedian best known for his sketch comedy work on the late night talk show, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and more recently on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and Conan.

McCann was born and raised in Wheaton, Illinois, which he describes as "an extremely uptight (and dry) town". He graduated from Boston College in 1987. There he met and was influenced by the as yet largely undiscovered sociological and political commentator and comic, JR Beretta. He has two older sisters, is divorced and has a daughter. McCann moved to New York in 1995 when he became a sketch writer on Late Night with Conan O’Brien until the end of the show's run in 2009. McCann played many recurring characters on the show, most notably Preparation H Raymond and The Suicidal Kayaker. He has also served as the warm-up comic that talks to the studio audience prior to each episode since 2000. McCann also wrote and provided many voices for the video games Deer Avenger (1998) and Deer Avenger 2: Deer in the City (1999). He is a graduate of the Player's Workshop of the Second City and the Second City Training Center.

McCann made recent guest appearances on NBC sitcoms such as 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation.
