The Times thinks he ‘shows confidence and charm that could sell out stadiums.’ He’s already established on Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week, and the topical Channel 4 show, The Last Leg.


Best known for twenty-three series of the multi award-winning Channel 4 show The Last Leg, Josh has had an incredible rise in the decade he has been performing stand-up, with multiple appearances on QI, Live at The Apollo, Mock the Week, A League Of Their Own, Have I Got News For You and Taskmaster to name but a few.

Josh also co-hosts Dave’s Hypothetical alongside James Acaster, and wrote and starred in his own BBC flat-share sitcom, Josh.

Co-host of the hugely popular podcast Parenting Hell with fellow comedian Rob Beckett, he is also host of cult 90s podcast Quickly Kevin: Will He Score? He has also fronted Radio 5 Live’s Fighting Talk.

If he wasn’t busy enough Josh has also written his first book, Watching Neighbours Twice a Day…How 90’s TV (Almost) Prepared Me For Life which saw him become a Sunday Times Bestseller.

Agent Recommendation

The fresh-faced young comic comes out with unexpectedly dry humour. It’s observational comedy at its best, which will have the audience reminiscing and laughing as if they’re all in on a private joke. JLA Agent Emily Collier
