“The best new act I’ve seen in a year” Dave Francis – The Holly Bush Cradley Heath

Josh started his stand up career in May 2014 when he exploded onto the scene by winning a gong show in his first ever gig. Since then Josh has continued to follow that explosion up with a series of sustained artillery attacks in the form of open spots around the west midlands. UN peacekeepers (hecklers) have tried to halt Josh’s assault on the comedy industry but have been forced to retreat by a mixture of well-crafted routines and elongated military analogies.

Midlands New Act of the Year 2014 – Josh was crowned as the Midlands New Act of the year after 6 months on the open mic circuit.
Funhouse gong winner – May 2014
Funhouse gong winner November 2014
Funhouse Champion Gong runner up January 2015.
Laugh and a half gong show winner – September 2014

“Sparklingly confident” Redditch Palace Theatre

Josh has also had several writing credits on BBC 4 Xtra’s Newsjack
