Tremain attended William Carey University, where he earned a Bachelor Arts in Biblical Studies with a Minor in Theatre'. While attending William Carey, Tremain became a licensed minister of the Gospel. Shortly after graduation, he began using relevant comedy in his sermons. Not only did the congregation love it, but the youth and adults, alike, began to request him to speak on regular bases. After much prayer and consideration, Tremain began his career as a Christian Comedian. Along with his many theatrical accomplishments, Tremain has performed Christian Stand-up at The GoTown Comedy Club, The CrossRhodes Christian Lounge, The Punchline Comedy Club, the 1st Annual ITZ Christian Comedy Conference, and even performed in "The 2008 Heavy Hitter's Christian Comedy Tour".

Tremain hopes to become known for his sense of humor and comedic timing.
