FROM TV LAND PRESS:
Comedian Josh McDermitt plays Brandon, the slacker best friend in the upcoming TV Land original sitcom, "Retired at 35" which premieres in January 2011. Ironically, McDermitt had a joke in his stand-up routine about a slacker living with his parents in a retirement community, so was shocked when his agent asked him to read for the part that he had joked about for so many years.
Growing up in big family of six children in Arizona, McDermitt was a natural prankster. He started his career in showbiz at the tender age of 14 and credits Billy Ray Cyrus for his start. At a bus stop on his way to school, McDermitt heard Cyrus' then-hit "Achy Breaky Heart" on the radio and decided to call in to local radio station KMLE-FM to make fun of the song. Afraid that his real voice would tell his age, McDermitt disguised his voice and took on the persona of a character named Cocko. The disc jockeys at the radio station were so amused by Cocko that they asked him to call in again the next day. This became a regular habit for McDermitt, who would change the persona occasionally to keep it fresh. Each time, he was invited to call back again until one day he fessed up and told the disc jockeys that all the people they had been regularly speaking with on the phone were indeed just him. The station's management quickly asked to meet him but he was scared to reveal that he was only 14. Once in the doors, the KMLE program director realized the talent he had and started teaching McDermitt the business. Josh was given a place at the mic on the 5 - 10am morning show and stayed a regular on the Tim & Willy Show for over 14 years.
He continued to hone his comedic talents performing stand-up at various comedy clubs in Arizona and also in Hollywood. He was a semi-finalist in "Last Comic Standing" and credits his mom's sarcasm as influential force in his stand-up career.
McDermitt resides in Los Angeles.
