Though he still has a hard time coming to grips with it, Cincinnati comedian Josh Sneed is growing up. “I’m getting married in April,” he reports. “That’s exciting. Local gal. I’m really looking forward to the material.”
It’s all part of his ongoing adjustment to adulthood, a struggle he talks about at length with audiences. “The things that I find myself doing and can’t believe, because I swore I never would,” he laments. “Or how out of touch I am with my little cousins, or children that are in my life.
How clueless I am about why they like the things they do. ‘When I was your age’ kind of thing. It’s been something that’s hard for me to swallow.”
Eight years after leaving P&G to pursue stand-up full-time, Sneed is amazed at how much he has accomplished: a Comedy Central Presents episode, two CDs, the chance to regularly perform in front of 10,000 people, a successful T-shirt business, a popular podcast (“Detention”) and headlining some of the top comedy clubs in America. “Even if it never gets any better than this,” he says, “it’s still been a pretty sweet ride.”
It doesn’t look like he’ll be running out of gas anytime soon.
Josh Sneed performs at Go Bananas in Montgomery Thursday-Sunday. Tickets are $10-$15.
