Joel Bryant began performing stand-up at 17 years old and became a stand-out on the local scene in his hometown of Albuquerque. Now L.A.-based, he has emerged as a go-to performer for his energy, his off-the-cuff sets and his heralded MC skills. He's also a recognizable actor from many TV, film and National commercial spots ("Monk," "The Heartbreak Kid," "The Defenders," etc. See IMDb.com). He's played across the US, for the troops over-seas, and donated his time to a number of charities (APLA, Tourette Syndrome Assoc., NoH8, Dream Foundation).
