DC Improv debut! Brendan Schaub’s first big break in live entertainment involved punching people in the face – in 2008 he was the runner-up on “The Ultimate Fighter.” He retired from MMA in 2015, but he’s not taking it easy: Brendan has now established himself as a comedy star. Millions of people listen to him every week on “The Fighter and the Kid” podcast, and you can see him performing stand-up this spring at DC’s top comedy spot.

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.
