Colt Balok was born in Tijuana, Mexico on August 23, 1993. When he was two years old, he was moved from San Diego, CA, where he lived with his mother and seven siblings, and was put up for adoption. He was adopted by a family living in Gallup, NM, where he grew up.  

Colt received a B.A. in Political Science and Communications from the University of New Mexico. Colt then attended the Anderson School of Management, until the business program discontinued his admissions. Realizing that getting kicked out of their master’s program was a blessing in disguise, Colt set his sights on creating and hosting The Colt Show

Colt began meeting with local production executives and built a team. The Colt Show aired on May 9, 2018. The show’s name has since been changed to The Colt Balok Show, and is currently in development.
