McDermitt began his career in entertainment by calling in to a local radio show in Phoenix, Tim & Willy, at a young age. Calling in routinely, under the guise of different voices, McDermitt kept listeners and Tim & Willy entertained. Not long afterward, he began working with them as a producer, following them to both KNIX & KMLE.
McDermitt was a semi-finalist in the fourth season of Last Comic Standing. He played the role of Larry in the 2009 TV movie Rehab for Rejects. McDermitt then starred in the TV Land sitcom Retired at 35, playing the role of Brandon. The show ran for two seasons from 2011–2012, before being canceled.
In October 2013, it was announced by the TV show producers that McDermitt had been cast as Eugene Porter, a character from The Walking Dead comic book, for the fourth season of the TV series of the same name. He returned as a main cast member for the fifth season.
