How it all began………

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 Proctor & Gamble, he’s made great strides in following his passion for stand-up.

In 2008, Josh finished 2nd out of 100 of Comedy Central’s top comedians in the Annual Stand-up Showdown competition, earning him a deal to record a new album on Comedy Central Records. “Unacceptable” was released September 30, 2008 and was given rave reviews. iTunes selected it as one of the Top 10 comedy albums released last year. In 2006, Josh filmed a 30-minute special, “Comedy Central Presents: Josh Sneed” that debuted in March 2007 and is currently re-airing. 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. In 2007, Josh was chosen by Comedy Central to perform in the inaugural South Beach Comedy Festival. In 2009, Josh garnered praise from Punchline Magazine for his performance at the Aspen Comedy Festival. Josh has made numerous appearances on the nationally syndicated “The Bob & Tom Show.”
