Our Eyes Are Fixed On: Randy Brooks


The Man Behind “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” and Storyteller on the Oral Fixation Stage.

Randy  Brooks is inevitably introduced – even at the most inappropriate times – as “the man who wrote ‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer’”  In addition to singer/songwriter gigs, he plays bass with pool party band, The Bad Monkeys, and is the recorded voice of the American Airlines AAdvantage program.
If he were to write his biography, he would title it, “One Hit Wonder.”
When asked about what he wants to be when he grows up, Randy answered, “a two-hit wonder.”
Randy would love to meet the Beatles or anyone in their inner circle and can often be spotted at Poor David’s Pub.

According to Randy:

Most Embarrassing Mistake You’ve Ever Made: Calling a woman by an old girlfriend’s name.  But it was my lucky day; she had the same name.
One Thing Missed About Childhood: Somebody else paying the bills.
Best Book Read in the Last Decade: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
