Matt Iseman


Matt Iseman is host of NBC's heart-racing obstacle course competition series "American Ninja Warrior."
Iseman has been part of the "American Ninja Warrior" team as a host since 2010. Long before that opportunity arose, Matt earned his medical degree but quickly realized stand-up comedy was more in his DNA.

He began his hosting career on "Scream Play" for E! Entertainment 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 No. 1 on the network during that time. That led to work as host of the spin-off "Clean House Comes Clean" and a multi-episode special called "Clean House: The Messiest Home in the Country," which earned Iseman a Daytime Emmy Award.
Most recently, Iseman hosted "Family by Design" for Style, and he has been touring with his one-man show, "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus."
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 Speed. Additionally, he hosted a special for History entitled "Invisible," about the world around us that we don't see.
Iseman made his movie debut in "Transformers 2" and made appearances on the "The Drew Carey Show," "NCIS" and "Courting Alex." He also had a recurring role on "General Hospital." Iseman has also appeared on "Premium Blend" on Comedy Central and "Comics Unleashed" with Byron Allen, and he's a regular panelist on "Red Eye." His CD, "I Want a Happy Ending," has become an iTunes sensation. You can also hear his comedy on Sirius XM, Pandora and countless radio stations around the nation.
