Josh McDermitt is an American actor and comedian.
Josh is the son of Judith and Michael McDermitt.
Josh has said:
My dad was adopted. He’s Puerto Rican. So McDermitt is an adopted name but I have Dutch ancestry on my mom’s side so I look like my mom. It’s easier to tell people I’m Irish then it is to go through the whole [history]. But what’s funny is that in Phoenix, where I’m from, my dad grew up in the barrio and is very entrenched in the Mexican culture even though he has Portuguese heritage. He considers himself Mexican.
Michael’s maternal grandfather was Wesley Albert Ackman (the son of Carl Henry Ackman and Helen Ida J. Woltman). Wesley was born in Minnesota. Carl was born in Minnesota, the son of Henry Ackman and Sophie Bredymeyer, whose parents were German. Helen was born in Minnesota, the daughter of Edward Woltman, who was German, and of Henrietta Wittlief, whose parents were German, and were of German and Polish descent.

Paul was born in Wisconsin, the son of George Brinton Baker and Jennie Eliza Johnson. Sarah was born in Minnesota, the daughter of Albert Lusire VanDeWalker and Inez Westover.
