Travis McElroy was born in West Virginia and attended the University of Oklahoma as a National Merit Scholar. He graduated from OU with a BFA in Acting and then proceeded to have no idea what he was going to do with his life. At the age of 25, he began his podcast, My Brother My Brother and Me (MBMBaM) with his real-life brothers, Justin and Griffin, began working at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, and met his wife. Altogether, a pretty good year. After Cincy Shakes, Travis became a full time Podcaster adding new shows like Trends Like These, Shmanners and most notably, The Adventure Zone. MBMBaM was later adapted into a live action television show through NBCUniversal’s comedy streaming channel, Seeso, which premiered as the #1 television show for sale on iTunes. The McElroys have adapted The Adventure Zone into a graphic novel series via First Second Books with book one (2018) and book 2 (2019) reaching #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Travis’s pop culture notoriety has earned him a role in the upcoming Trolls World Tour movie alongside Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick and Jamie Dornan (and his brothers, but that’s less important). He continues to record podcasts and regularly takes the shows on tour across the US & UK.
