Baum was a football player at UCLA, but transferred to the University of California-Davis to receive more playing time. At UC-Davis, he earned a degree in political science while performing impromptu comedy routines in the school library and food commons. He returned to UCLA to earn a master's degree in film, and while working on film school projects, met comedians such as Garry Shandling, Robin Williams, and Bob Saget. He joined the stand-up circuit in 1977. He also appeared on the short-lived revival of the TV game show Make Me Laugh.
In 1981, Baum, billed as Bruce "Baby Man" Baum, recorded the popular comedy song "Marty Feldman Eyes", a parody of the Kim Carnes hit "Bette Davis Eyes".
In 1986, he appeared with Dallas star Jenilee Harrison and The Huggabug Club star Audrey Landers on Super Password with Bert Convy.
Baum has appeared in several television programs since the early 1980s, including The Stockard Channing Show, Growing Pains, Full House, and Northern Exposure.
