Regularly entertaining medical professionals with the skills of a professional comedian and the experience of a medical doctor, 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, 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, Iseman skewers topics from lunchtime conferences on morbidity and mortality to "pager duels" to malpractice woes. 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.

Building on his improvisational background with the Groundling's in Los Angeles, Iseman was a regular on E! Entertainment's former hit "Talk Soup." Most recently he was the host of E!'s reality show, "Scream Play," where average people reenacted action scenes from films. His numerous other television appearances include co-hosting "The Glutton Bowl," a two-hour primetime FOX special aired during the Olympics; appearances on "The Drew Carey Show" and "Mad TV;" and a guest role on the daytime drama, "General Hospital." Recently, Iseman performed on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," and he's currently a contributing writer for Us Weekly's "Fashion Police."

One of only ten comedians in the nation selected to perform at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, Iseman received an overwhelming response to two sold-out USO shows at Kunsan Air Force Base in Kunsan, Korea. He was invited to headline a tour throughout Europe in March 2003, hitting 15 bases in 18 days, and this summer he will return overseas to entertain troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also continues to headline major comedy clubs across the nation.
