Shain Brenden is a comedian, writer, TV personality, and full-time handsome person based in Portland, Oregon. He pulls double duty on two shows for NBC Sports Northwest as a host on Blazers Outsiders, and the ‘Man on the Streets’ for The Bridge, bringing his two loves together: comedy and sports. He plays a lead in multiple 2018 Oregon State Lottery commercials making a lot of faces, saying nothing, and shoving jalapeno poppers in his mouth.
1/3 of the notorious Pizza Gang, he co-produces the weekly comedy show You’re Welcome noted in the Willamette Weekly as one of the “Best Stand up Showcases in Portland” along with a featured article in The Oregonian as a “Comic Making a Splash”.
He’s a regular performing comic at Helium Comedy Club in Portland and has performed at San Francisco Sketchfest, Gilda’s Laugh Fest, San Diego Comedy Fest, Northwest Black Comedy Fest, Cape Fear Comedy Fest, Cannon Beach Comedy Fest, and the Memphis Comedy Fest.
A University of Memphis alumni, Shain’s proudest moment was when he threw a half-eaten corn dog at Eli Manning during a Memphis vs. Ole Miss game in 2003. He’s a husband, a father, a combat veteran, and can bench 245 lbs… easy.
