Brent Morin (born August 31, 1986)[1] is a Los Angeles-based American comedian, stand-up comic, actor and writer.[2] He was a panelist in the sixth season of Chelsea Lately and played Justin Kearney on the NBC sitcom Undateable[3] and the agent Hobbs on the sci-fi web-series Crunch Time, on Rooster Teeth.[4] In 2015, Morin released his stand-up comedy show, I'm Brent Morin, exclusively on Netflix.[5]

Early life

Morin was born in South Windsor, Connecticut, to two inner city high school English teacher parents.[6] Morin has an older brother, who was a concert pianist, and a younger brother, who became a professional figure skater. He graduated from South Windsor High School.[6] He is of Irish and Italian background.[7]

Career

Morin moved to Los Angeles at 18 to study at a film school at Columbia College Hollywood.[8] Although he graduated with a film degree, Morin started doing stand-up and eventually decided that was what he wanted to do.[6] Morin has said that he was inspired by his idols, Albert Brooks and Woody Allen.[8] After graduation, he worked as a production assistant with Conan O'Brien on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien on NBC and continued with Conan on TBS.[6][9] He went from being a general office production assistant to becoming the set production assistant/Andy Richter's stand-in.[10] Morin has appeared regularly as a stand-up comic on shows with The Comedy Store, The Improv and Laugh Factory,[11] as well as on tours throughout the United States.[12] In his network TV debut, Morin co-starred in the Bill Lawrence NBC series Undateable,[13] a multi-camera sitcom with a live audience, which was based on the book Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won't Be Dating or Having Sex by Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle.[14]

Morin portrayed Justin Kearney, the owner of Black Eyes Bar and hopeless romantic roommate of Danny (played by Chris D'Elia). Undateable was unique in that it was a cast full of stand-up comedians who were good friends before the show aired. The show often incorporates improv, with Morin playing Felix to D'Elia's grouch Oscar à la The Odd Couple.[15][16][17] Lawrence and the cast (Chris D'Elia, Morin, Ron Funches, and Rick Glassman) went on a series of stand-up tour dates, with an appearance on @midnight to promote the show.[18][19] In 2016, Morin was cast for the Rooster Teeth web series, Crunch Time.

Personal life

Morin dated actress Angie Simms for two years, confirming their relationship in 2016,[20][21] and breakup in 2017.[22]
