Joel Bryant was birthed in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It’s in Albuquerque that he got his first acting gig as Officer Rick Foley in “Unsolved Mysteries” and his first stand-up experience at the age of 17 at Laff’s Comedy Cafe.
After winning Outstanding Actor at the New Mexico Theatre Conference, he left his hometown to pursue acting and comedy in Los Angeles. Because of a hefty theatre scholarship, he attended Pepperdine University. Joel was recently asked back by his alma mater to teach a Master Class, sharing those duties with Jason Alexander and Daniel Stern, among others.
Since he already knew what he wanted in life, he decided to graduate in three years; however, always enjoying a challenge, he did it magna cum laude with 2 majors (theatre and telecommunications).
Since then, it’s been a steady climb up. Check out his imdb credits.
He’s done classic theatre in the Caribbean, improv in the Arctic, Shakespeare in East Texas, stand-up in Georgia, one-act plays in Scotland and karaoke in the Philippines. His next goal? Salsa dancing in the Himalayas…..wish him luck!
