Barry Williams Guests On Harvey Brownstone Interviews

Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Barry Williams, America’s Big Brother, Co-Star, “The Brady Bunch” and  Author of“Growing Up Brady”.

Barry Williams is one of the most instantly recognizable and beloved actors of our generation, who became known throughout the world as America’s most reliable big brother, “Greg” on the iconic TV show “The Brady Bunch”.

Although the original sitcom ended in 1974 after 5 seasons, “The Brady Bunch” has had phenomenal longevity and success. There were 7 different TV series, 2 full length feature films, 5 TV specials, a concert tour, 3 record albums, a stage play, a reality series, and countless Brady Bunch merchandising items and collectibles that are still very much in demand, especially the Brady Bunch lunch bucket. And get this: since its premiere on September 26, 1969, “The Brady Bunch” has NEVER been off the air. The show has been broadcast in almost every country on earth, and each of the original 117 episodes has aired over 100,000 times, and for many years it’s been the highest rated program EVER on Nick at Night.

But well beyond “The Brady Bunch”, Barry Williams has had a long and impressive career as an actor, singer, musician, dancer and producer. He’s appeared in dozens of classic TV shows including “Run For Your Life”, “Gomer Pyle”, “Mod Squad”, “Adam-12”, “Mission Impossible”, “Police Woman”, “Three’s Company” and many more. He had recurring roles as “Hannibal” in “General Hospital” and “Dean Strickland”, also known as “The Dean Machine”, in “Hollywood 7”. And WHO can ever forget him on Season 32 of “Dancing with the Stars”, and Season 8 of “The Masked Singer” as one of “the Mummies”.

He starred on Broadway in “Romance, Romance” and “Pippin”, and he appeared in stage productions of “Grease”, “The Sound of Music”, “West Side Story” and “City of Angels”. On top of all that, he’s a gifted singer and guitar player, and he plays in a band called “Barry Williams and the Travel-eers”, featuring his beautiful wife Tina.

His New York Times bestselling book entitled, “Growing Up Brady: I was a Teenage Greg”, is now in its 3rd edition, and was made into a TV movie, which he co-wrote and co-executive produced. The book highlights the relationships, the behind-the-scenes stories, and especially the people who made “The Brady Bunch” so special to multiple generations around the world.

In 1994 Barry Williams was nominated for a Cable Ace Award for Best Performance in a Comedy Special. And he’s received 4 TV Land Award nominations, and in 2007, he and his fellow Brady Bunch castmates won the TV Land Pop Culture Award. In 1989 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award as a former child star from the Young Artist Foundation.

Harvey Brownstone is a retired judge of the Ontario Court of Justice and was the first openly gay judge in Canada. He is also the bestselling author of “Tug of War: A Judge’s Verdict on Separation, Custody Battles and the Bitter Realities of Family Court” and hosted “Family Matters with Justice Harvey Brownstone,” a television talk show on matters involving the family justice system.

​After a distinguished legal career, Harvey was appointed a judge at the age of 38 in 1995.  He has presided in family and criminal courts.   He has been a trailblazer in several ways.  He was the first openly gay judge in Canada.  He was the first sitting judge in the world to write a national best seller and to host a TV talk show.

​Harvey has been a role model and icon in the LGBTQ community.  When same-sex marriage was legalized in Canada in 2003, he was the only judge to make himself publicly available to officiate at weddings for lesbian and gay couples travelling to Toronto from all over the world to get married.  In 2007, he officiated at the wedding of Edith Windsor and Thea Spyer, the American couple whose marriage triggered the 2013 United States Supreme Court decision overturning the definition of “spouse” in the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

​In February 2021, Harvey launched his online talk show “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” on his own YouTube channel. He saw this as an interesting hobby.   Within several months, the show attracted hundreds of thousands – and then eventually, millions – of viewers.  Because of the overwhelming success of the show, Harvey decided to retire from the judiciary on December 31, 2021 after having presided as a full-time judge for 26 1/2 years.  Free from the constraints imposed upon judges regarding the expression of opinions and the endorsement of private enterprise, Harvey now happily devotes his full-time attention to hosting “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” as a regular member of the public – albeit one with a rather illustrious and unique career history.
