Joe Saunders

Joe Saunders is a comedy writer living in Los Angeles. A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he is a writer for the UCB Maude Team "Oh, Brother!" and the UCB Beta Team "Sneak Thief." His other UCB credits include Not Too Shabby, Sketchcram, Cagematch, Let's Do This, and numerous other shows. He has also written videos featured on the front page of Funny or Die and radio sketches for NPR Marketplace, and has performed at San Francisco Sketchfest, Sketchfest NYC, and the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas. He is not the same Joe Saunders as the guy who's now a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles. At least, he doesn't think he is.
