Described by San Francisco Weekly as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers,” Grant was once a collegiate soccer player. He decided to pursue a career on stage instead of on the field, and that decision’s been rewarded by being chosen as a New Face in comedy at the Just For Laughs Festival, winning the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and being a finalist in the Big Sky Festival.
He’s appeared on Comedy Central, Comics Unleashed, SyFy’s series The Movie Show, and he starred in the Amazon Prime feature film Killer Kate! In addition, he’s been a guest on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show and on numerous popular podcasts including Doug Loves Movies. “Scheduled Fun Time,” his comedy album with 800 Pound Gorilla records, hit number #1 and has been featured on numerous SiriusXM channels.
As well as being a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, the film he wrote and starred in, Interview Date, was eligible for a short film Academy Award. Funny or Die, MSN, Huffington Post, and others are among the sites that have featured Grant’s sketch videos on their home pages. You might also recognize him from a number of national commercials including AT&T, Johnsonville Sausage, CiCi’s Pizza, Sam Adams and more.
His debut board game, Curmudgeon, came out in 2020, published by 25th Century Games. A huge lover of board games, Grant hosts a weekly series on his YouTube channel called Grant’s Game Recs, short and funny videos about good games.
