Brian Dunkleman was one of the first celebrities to experience the wrath of cancel culture after his departure from co-hosting the first season of American Idol. The actor/comedian is sharing that experience with never told before behind the scenes insights on the long-running show along with his own painful journey in “Dunkleman” which just debuted on Amazon Prime. The special is a labor of love for him and the first time that he is speaking about his own personal demons (i.e.; the trauma of losing his father when was 11-years-old, substance abuse, divorce) and the challenges of navigating the entertainment business post Idol.
