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. Josh’s comedy is a combination of satire and his laid-back, frank personality landed him as runner-up in the Myspace “Stand Up or Sit Down” Comedy Competition.
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.
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.
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 performed in large venue theaters across the country as an opening act for the various members of “The Blue Collar Comedy Tour”, and made several appearances on “The Bob & Tom Show”.
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.”
