In 2009, Joe Moses joined forces with his college friends and peers in Team StarKid to effectively blow up the internet with their YouTube parody musical titled A Very Potter Musical. Playing a hilariously drawling, gliding, and deliciously wicked version of Severus Snape, Moses showed off his comedic chops and gained a new fandom in the process.

Having moved to Los Angeles after being based in New York for a few years, he's continued making a name for himself with his sketch comedy show titled the 'Joe Moses Showses' that would regularly perform in NYC but went national with a tour over the summer, with a DVD highlighting a couple of those performances now available to purchase. Putting on his show for the first time since the tour ended in August, Moses is preparing his third annual 'Holiday Showses,' which this year features special guests Clark Baxtresser (TalkFine), Tessa Netting (Billy Elliott, Glee) and Broadway icon Anthony Rapp (RENT). "There's something great about having a really vague theme like the holidays," says Moses. "It's so exciting to write for that. Ideas come up that I wouldn't think of during the course of the year."
We spoke with the performer about what to expect for his holiday shows this weekend, his love of pandas, and getting confused with a rapper who shares his name.More »
