About Josh McDermitt
Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, McDermitt never had aspirations to be in entertainment. Growing up, he wanted to be a police officer or detective. Yet he fell into the radio industry at an early age, working at the local radio station at 14-years-old, where he began to discover his voice creating characters.
After college and after working at the radio station for over ten years, Josh wanted to try his hand in stand-up comedy. Then back in 2011, he landed a series regular role on TV Land’s Retired at 35. For two seasons, he starred as Brandon, the pool man and best friend to Dave, a man who decides to quit the corporate rat race in New York City and retire in Florida at age 35.

The series also presented Josh with the opportunity to work with some of the greats in acting, Oscar® Nominee George Segal, and Emmy® Award Winner Jessica Walter. After 20 episodes, McDermitt landed his next acting gig, a role on The Walking Dead. He also recurred on the final season of Mad Men.
Next, McDermitt has starring roles in two independent features, Middle Man, a dark comedy written and directed by Ned Crowley; and Life In Color, a romantic comedy written and directed by Katherine Emmer. Both films are receiving critical acclaim on the festival circuit.
