Actor and comedian Josh Meyers used his improvisational skills to perform and voice a host of offbeat characters in films and television projects, including "That '70s Show" (Fox, 1998-2006) and "The Awesomes" (Hulu, 2013-15). Born Joshua Dylan Meyers in Bedford, New Hampshire on January 8, 1976, he was the younger brother of "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) performer/writer Seth Meyers, who later hosted "Late Night with Seth Meyers" (NBC, 2014- ). Both siblings attended Manchester High School West in Manchester, New Hampshire and Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois before relocating to Amsterdam to perform with the acclaimed "Boom Chicago" improvisational troupe. Upon his return to the United States, Josh Meyers joined the cast of "Mad TV" (Fox, 1995-2009) as a featured performer in 2001; there, he earned a reputation for impersonations of celebrities like Owen Wilson and Eminem. When Topher Grace left "That '70s Show" before its eighth and final season, Meyers was tapped to fill Grace's role as straight man to the supporting cast, and remained with the show until its final episode in 2006. He then moved into steady work as a comic presence in a variety of projects, including the Martin Lawrence comedy feature "College Road Trip" (2008) and the Sacha Baron Cohen mockumentary "Brüno" (2009), and the voice of a number of beloved characters, including Conky the robot, in "The Pee Wee Herman Show on Broadway" (2011). Meyers continued to forge a diverse path with his acting roles, playing both Liberace's attorney in the Emmy-winning "Behind the Candelabra" (HBO, 2013) and "The Awesomes," an animated spoof of superhero teams co-created by his brother Seth. Meyers voiced both the arrogant Perfect Man and the Flying Dutchman, a team member of the Continental knock-off group the Euro-Awesomes. In 2015, Meyers joined the cast of "Red Oaks" (2015), a comedy set at a tennis club in the 1980s produced for Amazon Studios by Steven Soderbergh and David Gordon Green.
