Brian began his acting career at Cambridge High School in Illinois, and appeared in the school's musicals, as well as being a member of the Cambridge Vikings football team. After graduating in 1977, Brian attended college in Normal, IL. After attending Illinois State University, Phelps did commercial work and improvisational comedy before meeting his partner Mark Thompson in Birmingham, Alabama in 1986. The next year the duo moved their show to KLOS-FM in Los Angeles, where they are still based.
The enormous popularity of his radio show has given Phelps several opportunities to branch out into other entertainment media. In 1991-92, he and Thompson hosted a short-lived NBC TV series, The Adventures of Mark & Brian, based on their radio show. He has also made numerous TV series guest appearances, including the role of Reverend Gigg LeCarp on the Comedy Central series Reno 911!. Phelps often ends the Mark & Brian Show with the catch phrase "Be good humans!".
