  • Matt Iseman

    as Host

    Matt Iseman has been part of the "American Ninja Warrior" team as a host since 2010.  Long before that opportunity arose, Iseman earned his medical degree, but quickly realized stand-up comedy was more in his DNA. Iseman began his hosting career on the show "Scream Play" for E! and "Casino Night" for GSN. Shortly thereafter, he started a five year run as the ‘Go-to Guy’ on Style’s "Clean House," which was #1 on the network during that time.  That show led to hosting a spin-off show called "Clean House Comes Clean," and a multi-episode special called "Clean House: The Messiest Home in the Country," which earned Iseman a Daytime Emmy. Iseman combined his lifelong passions of sports and comedy to host "Sports Soup" on Versus and was the voice for the "Dumbest Stuff on Wheels" on the Speed Channel. Additionally he hosted a special for the History Channel that will air summer 2012 called "Invisible" about the world around us that we don’t see. Iseman made his movie debut in "Transformers 2" and made appearances on "The Drew Carey Show, "NCIS," "Courting Alex" and had a recurring role on "General Hospital." He's appeared on Premium Blend on Comedy Central, Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen and he's a regular panelist on RedEye. His CD, I Want a Happy Ending, has become an iTunes sensation. You can also hear his comedy on SiriusXM, Pandora and countless radio stations around the nation. He has utilized his energetic, charismatic style around the world performing shows for troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, Bosnia, Hungary and other top vacation destinations and has been able to parlay that into his work as co-host with Jonny Moseley on "American Ninja Warrior."
