Born in Saginaw, Michigan Joey Kloberdanz was raised in a typical Midwestern family atmosphere with his two brothers and two sisters. His dreams, however, were far from typical and reached well beyond the city limits of his home town. He first developed an interest in acting and entertainment in Elementary School when he, along with a childhood friend, performed the classic Abbott & Costello comedy skit “Who’s On First”. To the sounds of wondrous applause, Joey never looked back and snagged the lead in the High School comedy-drama “The Boys Next Door”, as well as roles in community theatre productions of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, “Oliver” and “Annie”.

 

While attending Western Michigan University, Joey threw himself into his pre-med studies and served as a leader in many college organizations. Continuing the growth of his already strong athletic abilities, he played on the Men’s Volleyball Team at WMU and was captain for two years. He was voted Homecoming King his senior year and upon graduation in 2008, moved to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career full time.

 

Since his arrival in Hollywood, Joey has trained with the Larry Moss and Ivana Chubbuck, and currently is under the tutelage of Annie Grindlay. He has appeared in a commercial for ESPN and acted in several short films, most notably “One Gallon” and “Logan(+),” which is presently making the festival circuit. In his most recent feature film endeavor, he played the part of Trevor in the post-war drama “Always Faithful”. You can currently see Joey in the award-winning series “Redwood” and the horror-thriller "Messiah"
