Matt Iseman : Family Member

Although he always loved being the center of attention, Emmy award winning host Matt Iseman started down a very different road. After graduating with honors from Princeton University and the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he received his MD, he returned home to the University of Colorado for his residency in Internal Medicine. Then, in a move that shocked patients and parents alike, he quit his job as a doctor and moved out to Hollywood to pursue stand-up comedy and he never looked back.

Matt quickly began headlining clubs across the nation and was selected as one of 10 comedians to perform at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. His world experience did not stop there as he made his first overseas trip to entertain the troops on 9/11 of that same year to perform in South Korea. Since then, he has bunkered down with the troops sharing his comedy in Kosovo, Bosnia, Croatia, Germany, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.

While Matt can currently be seen as the host of NBC’s smash summer hit “American Ninja Warrior”, Matt began his hosting career with the show Scream Play on E! which allowed Matt to combine his love of movies and dangerous stunts. He then got lucky as he ran the streets of Las Vegas hosting Casino Night for GSN. Shortly thereafter, he started a 5 year run as the Goto Guy on Clean House, the #1 show on the Style Network and hosted the spin-off show called Clean House Comes Clean. This run included hosting The 5 Messiest Homes in the Country, garnering the highest ratings Style had ever seen and earning Matt a Daytime Emmy (the first ever for the network).

 In addition to his hosting success Matt remains active in acting and comedy as well. Matt made his movie debut in Transformers 2 and made appearances on the Drew Carey Show, NCIS, Courting Alex, The League, Hot in Cleveland and had a recurring role on General Hospital. No, he did not play a doctor. His success in stand-up has led to appearances on Premium Blend on Comedy Central, Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen and he's a regular panelist on RedEye. Matt is based out of Hollywood but you can usually find him online.
