Host/MC Joshua Snyder FLAPPCAST, COMEDY STORE, FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB
Joshua Snyder grew up in beautiful and pastoral Colorado, where he did not participate in such activities as mountain climbing, rafting, spelunking, and power walking. His parents taught him that sex was a natural act, and that he should use his time in college to "have fun." (his parents are currently looking into adopting their own grandchildren).
Josh has gone on only three dates in his lifetime, and each ended as it began: with a skin rash.
Hobbies include tracking changes of hair style on the extras in Star Trek: The Next Generation, trying to cry, and crying.
The lure of Southern California's market research facilities could not keep Josh in Colorado. He currently works as a Client Service Representative, where he makes name tags, defends the dignity of the office printers, and shows clients how to use the coffee machine with only one button on it.
