josh sneed calls in #70 his bio below and sound file thanks to comedy central
Josh Sneed is quickly making his mark as one of the top young comics in the business, and for the purpose of this bio,
has become skilled in the art of writing in the third person. After quitting a comfy day job working for Procter & Gamble,
he’s made excellent strides in following his passion for making people laugh. He’s opened for such acts as Dave
Chappelle, Dane Cook, and Lewis Black.
Most recently, Josh finished 2nd out of 100 of Comedy Central’s top comedians
in the Annual Stand-up Showdown. In 2006, Josh filmed a 30-minute special, “Comedy Central Presents: Josh Sneed”
that debuted in March 2007 and is currently re-airing. He’s also been seen on "Premium Blend", and was selected by the
network in 2006 to perform in the inaugural South Beach Comedy Festival. In November of 2006, Josh placed 6th in the Sierra
Mist/MySpace Stand-up or Sit Down Challenge out of over 2,000 entrants. Finishing high in competitions is nothing new to Josh.
In 4th grade he earned a blue ribbon for throwing a softball through a tire.
In 2004, he performed at the Just For
Laugh's Montreal Comedy Festival in the "New Faces of Comedy" group, one of the highest honors that a comedian at his level
can achieve. Josh has also be seen performing in large venue theaters across the country as an opening act for the various
members of "The Blue Collar Comedy Tour", and has made several appearances on "The Bob & Tom Show".
His first solo
comedy CD, “A Shout Out To My Peeps”, is receiving high praise from fans and critics across the country, and receives
regular airplay on XM and Sirius satellite radio. Across the country, Josh is receiving excellent feedback from comedy club,
corporate, and college audiences. In an interview with an Austin, TX magazine, the late great Mitch Hedberg said, "...my favorite
comic is from Cincinnati, Josh Sneed. He's amazing." Dave Attell calls Josh, "a great joke writer."
