Regularly entertaining audiences from all areas of healthcare with the skills of a professional comedian and the experience of a medical doctor who knows what it’s like to be on both sides of the stethoscope, Dr. Matt Iseman finds humor in an industry that too often forgets the importance of laughter.
An honors graduate of Princeton University and the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. Iseman headed home to the University of Colorado for a residency in Internal Medicine. Now based out of Los Angeles, he is a licensed physician and a professional comedian who captivates audiences from all walks of life with his hilarious presentations that revolve around his real-life experiences as a physician.
Combining an energetic, charismatic stage presence with incisive material, Dr. Iseman skewers topics from lunchtime conferences on morbidity and mortality to “pager duels” to malpractice woes and he also tackles his own struggles with chronic illness in the form of Rheumatoid Arthritis and a bout with cancer. Always hilarious and ever respectful of the profession, he has performed for hospital meetings, medical conferences and pharmaceutical company events from coast to coast, reminding healthcare professionals that, while laughter may not cure diseases, it can make them a little less painful.
Audiences may recognize Dr. Iseman as the host of “American Ninja Warrior,” one of the top shows of the summer, or from the new Celebrity Apprentice. With over 15 years hosting Television shows and headlining comedy clubs and corporate events, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more experienced speaker.
