Comedian 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.

Comedian The Gym
COMMUNITY, PARKS AND RECREATION, ALWAYSSUNNYINPHILADELPHIA, WORKAHOLICS, SHAMELESS
The Gym, founded in 2010 by Sofia Gonzalez, Chris Eckert, and Navaris Darson, was a low-key environment where performers could ´work out´ their improv skills. It successfully brought together talented guys and girls who wanted to practice short form improv, long form and sketch comedy.
Our background is largely based out of The Groundlings, each member having a history of performing there. Additional training from Second City, IO West, and UCB.
The Gym is known for our love of themed shows. Shows typically are related to a season, "We Wish You A Merry Gym-mas" or just random, "M. Night Shyamalan presents: Fools April."
This 16 member group, now led by Selyna Greenman, includes Daniel Acker, Cammy Brickell, Dominic Burgess, Ilana Cohn-Sullivan, Kimberly Condict, Sara Cravens, Josh Duvendeck, Chris Eckert, Sofia Gonzalez, Jessica Green, Dakota Greene, Patty Guggenheim, Cooper Hopkins, Laura Hughes, and Joey Mackey.
