Unfortunate, the online popularity revolved around a toxic person and his toxic community.

Reviews

 

"As you listen to him, you're forced to realize that as deeply sad as some of his experiences are, he has formed a strong sense of self and a sense of humor which is easy to relate to and root for."

- The Daily Blowhole

 

"If we’re really to give ourselves the best of ourselves, we have to be honest with the worst of ourselves first”. “Gregory Brandt taught me this. Before we can accept change, we must recognize their is need for change. No one is perfect, but working hard and staying dedicated to our dreams, is the true meaning of success. Gregory’s book “Gonzo Education,” expresses these beliefs. What we ‘need’ tells us who we are. What we ‘want’ tells us who we want to be. Therefore, we pursue what we ‘want’ because we don’t want to face who we are."

"MrG is not only an IRL Character, previous teacher and Graduate from Journalism School. He is an IRL Producer and Innovator.

He studies IRL characters and thinks of many ways to create scenes. He has been figuring out the technology and software and has attracted help from friends who are excited about the Gx Network.

I am a character on his show, and feel I can truly by unfiltered self on his show.

He inspires people to do IRL Streaming by investing his time and money in it to create a regular show and makes people in the chat, viewers feel like they are a part of an entertainment agenda: a place on the internet where you can interact and be anonymous and be fun with humor.

IRL would not be the same without Greg."
