Biography

While most Hollywood writers often stayed behind the scenes, J. B. Smoove found success on both sides of the camera. After paying his dues early in his career as a stand-up comic, the straight-shooting and charismatic Smoove landed a plum job as a writer on the seminal sketch comedy program "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ). Working alongside famed "SNL" alums such as Chris Rock, Adam Sandler and Tina Fey further increased Smoove's presence in show business. His pitch-perfect casting as Larry David's freeloading houseguest and sidekick on HBO's critically acclaimed series "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO, 2000- ) was even hailed as one of television's funniest characters. Smoove turned his recurring role on "Curb" into a scene-stealing performance that helped establish his reputation as a well-rounded and sought-after comedian.
