About Mandatory

Women, funny stuff, viral videos, must-read features, and a whole lot of awesome.

  • Paul Ulane

    Lead Editor, New York, NY
    Before landing at Mandatory.com, Paul honed his skills at a variety of web sites ranging from Maxim.com to SI.com. In that time, he's done everything from review DVDs to interview LeBron James. His current passions include YouTube and Twitter.
  • Gary Dudak

    Senior Editor, Santa Monica, CA
    Gary is a fan of rock and roll, Chicago sports teams (not named the Cubs), and love. He once tried to keep Willie Nelson's son from joining his father onstage for a song when he was inexplicably working as a security guard. Despite all of his shortcomings, he somehow manages to live on the beach in Southern California with a gorgeous woman who he is now lucky enough to call his wife.
  • Bryan Brunati

    Editor, New York, NY
    Born to parents who weren't famous at all, Bryan was put at a severe disadvantage from the get-go. And after realizing he had no willing participants in order to sleep his way to the top, he somehow convinced people to pay him to write instead. When not blackmailing people for a job, Bryan is binge-watching shows on Netflix, filling his body with pizza, considering using that free 30-day gym trial that expired four years ago, watching "Conan" and waiting for a round of applause.
  • Cory Dudak

    Editor, Santa Monica, CA
    Cory may not look like much, but unfortunately, that's his second best quality outside of working for Mandatory.com. Untalented at most sports unless cornhole counts (it doesn't), this comic book geek has had to rely on his quick wit and boyish charm to survive. He's a firm believer in the motto: If it can't be solved with a game of rock-paper-scissors, then to hell with it. Finally, he loves pizza to the point where it's most definitely a health risk.

  • In Venice, Italy they don't have streets, they have canals. So in Venice, we gotta keep the kids off the canals.

  • I want to get a vending machine, with fun sized candy bars, and the glass in front is a magnifying glass. You'll be mad, but it will be too late.

  • My belt holds my pants up, but the belt loops hold my belt up. I don't really know what's happening down there. Who is the real hero?
