Biography CLOSE THE FULL 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.
