Cincinnati-based comedian Josh Sneed says hes an avid people-watcher. I enjoy sitting around with someone I love and talking about the human trash that walks by, he says. He also likes dissing his ex-girlfriend. She was noisy and bulimic, he quips. I kept telling her, Honey, keep it down.
Sneed doesnt mind sharing stories about himself and his loved ones. That way, he says, other comedians wont steal his jokes. They cant do it, because theyre personal -- all related to me.
A favorite gag involves Jessica Simpson, an airplane, and Sneeds ass. He was flying home from Dallas a couple years ago, and The Dukes of Hazzard star was seated in front of him. He tried to make small talk, asking if she was visiting former husband Nick Lacheys family, who live near Cincinnati. She ignored him. Insulted, Sneed got up, walked past her, and farted. I wanted to turn around and see if she was making a face, he recalls. But theres no way I could have done it without laughing. Im just standing there like, I won!
