Brian Reichle (born August 4, 1974), known professionally as Brian Redban is a comedian, producer, and podcast host. Redban is best known as the original co-creator, co-host and producer of The Joe Rogan Experience, during the period 2009 to 2013.[1][2]. Other notable credits include being the co-host and producer of the ongoing live comedy podcast Kill Tony, alongside Tony Hinchcliffe[3], executive producer of The Naughty Show hosted by Sam Tripoli[4], and as original producer of Your Mom's House podcast hosted by Tom Segura and Christina Pazsitzky[5]. Redban created the Deathsquad comedy and podcast network in 2009, which has featured, amongst others, comedians such as Joe Rogan, Joey Diaz, Eddie Bravo, Ari Shaffir, and Doug Benson[6][7].


Redban was nominated in the 'Best Producer of a Webshow' category at the 2012 Shorty Awards[8], although the award was ultimately won by Awkward Black Girl[9].


In 2007, a Redban edited and produced viral video played a pivotal role, in what became known as 'The Mencia Incident', and which resulted in Joe Rogan getting banned from The Comedy Store, along with being dropped by his agents at the Gersh Agency. The video shows Rogan confronting fellow comedian Carlos Mencia on stage, with accusations of joke plagiarism, and Mencia strongly denying the allegations[10]. Despite the initial industry backlash against Rogan, the incident and video started a chain of events in which Mencia's comedy career lost significant momentum, including his hit Comedy Central show 'Mind Of Mencia' being cancelled in 2008[11][12][13]
