In the title compound, C12H10BrN, the dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 52.5 (1)°, whereas the pitch angles, or the angles between the mean plane of each aryl group ‘propeller blade’ and the plane defined by the aryl bridging C—N—C angle, are 19.6 (2) and 36.2 (3)°. While the N—H group is not involved in hydrogen-bonding inter­actions, the structure exhibits a network of inter­molecular C—H⋯π and N—H⋯π inter­actions
