Shain Brenden is a comedian, writer, actor and pretty much solid guy. Born from a Filipino mother and Bahamian father, (explains his face), raised in the South, (explains his accent), top it all off with being a husband, father, and military veteran, Shain uses his life experiences and knack for storytelling to paint a picture of a man "just trying his best with what he has." He was crowned Portland's Funniest Person, dubbed an “Undisputable Genius of Comedy” by the Portland Mercury, and named one of Willamette Weekly's "Funniest Five."
As a stand up comic he's made a name for himself performing all over the country at festivals such as: High Plains Comedy Festival, 10,000 Laughs, San Francisco Sketchfest, Laughing Skull and the Limestone Comedy Festival and Big Sky. He was a featured comic for Don't Tell Comedy's Youtube series and can be heard Netflix is a Joke Radio on SiriusXM.
As a writer, Shain is an alumni of the CBS Diversity Sketch Comedy program. He's been able to marry comedy writing chops and love of sports to work on projects for Nike, Adidas, Jordan Brand, and ultimately a writer/on-air host for NBC Sports' "Blazers Outsiders" for several seasons. As a working commercial actor he has featured in ads for Navy Federal Credit Union, Google, Marvel, T-Mobile and Nike, co-starred in the short independent film, "The Dinner" and played a knife-wielding opportunist in the murder heist drama "Queen Triggerfish."
A University of Memphis alumni, Shain’s proudest moment was throwing a half-eaten corn dog at Eli Manning during a University of Memphis vs. Ole Miss game in 2003.
