Joel Bryant was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, called Los Angeles home for 20 years and now he mostly just bops around the world. He's a Pepperdine Theatre graduate in both their Theatre and Telecommunications programs.
He’s been a Host and MC for both filmed and live events around the world. Playing in front of groups from 15 to 1500, from the smallest private parties to the biggest Fortune 500 companies, he has MC'ed the full spectrum - from Game Shows to Awards Galas, from team-building events to charity fund-raisers.
He's an award-winning actor with a wide range of credits in film, TV and theatre.
He’s a standup comedian that first took to the stand-up comedy stage at 17 years old and still slays ‘em today. Among his wide-ranging random career and credits, he was most proud to perform for the troops in the Middle East, at fund-raisers for APLA and Team 2 End AIDS (among many other charity events) and invariably can be found on every conceivable stage and screen in between.
Joel announces roller derby, has toured maximum security prisons performing comedy and teaching writing, recently completed the Athens Marathon (then got stranded in Istanbul) and is a nationally-ranked Obstacle Course racer and coach. He is the Orange County Fair pie-eating champion, won a freestyle rap battle in Savannah, Georgia, performed stand-up comedy in a basement in Vienna, shared stages with the likes of Stevie Wonder, RuPaul, Chris Rock and ZZTop (to name very few), climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, regularly attends Burning Man, spent a sunrise atop a volcano in Hawaii, a sunset skijoring in Montana and a late night having a drink with a person in full metal armor in a club in Minsk. He's survived touring Chernobyl, the Kit Kat Club, the first 10 Coachellas and a visit to all 50 states at one time or another. In short, which is what life is, he's always on the lookout for the next grand life experience... Inquire within.
Or just ask...He’ll say “yes” and go with you!

"The Diamond of Jeru" (audio-drama)
This is a great one for your ears! And one I'm really proud of... Years in the making, Louis L'Amour's son Beau took a short story of his dad's and turned it into a beautiful 3-disc audio-drama. One of the most satisfying projects I've ever had the joy to be a part of.
