Brendan Schaub is an American stand up comic, podcast host, tv personality, and retired mixed martial artist based out of Los Angeles, California. He cohosts his hit podcast, The Fighter and the Kid, with fellow stand up comic Bryan Callen. Together they created a hit show garnering over 10 million downloads a month. The podcast quickly acquired a cult following by consistently being a staple in the top 5 rankings on iTunes under the sports/comedy category for the last five years. Schaub added another show to his podcast empire when he created Below the Belt, which is the number 1 combat podcast in the world. Below the Belt is consistently in the top 5 iTunes rankings for the sports/comedy category and debuted as the 2nd largest podcast in the world. The Fighter and the Kid podcast eventually led Schaub to fulfill his childhood dream of being a stand up comic. He is now a regular at Los Angeles’s most prominent comedy clubs such as the Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and Improv. In 2018 Schaub travelled around the world for his “Stay in Your Lane” tour with sold out shows in Australia, London, Ireland, Canada, and all over the United States from LA to New York. He most notably sold out the Wilbur theatre in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to his successful career in comedy Schaub is also on Bravo’s “Play by Play”, E!’s “After Party”, Showtime’s “Below the Belt”, Comedy Central’s 7th season of “This is Not Happening”, David Ayer’s upcoming film “Tax Collector”, and Joe Rogan’s Fight Companion podcast. He began his professional mixed martial arts career in 2008 as the runner up on Spike TV’s 10th season of “The Ultimate Fighter”. Schaub ultimately retired from the UFC in 2015 in order to focus on his career in comedy and entertainment.
