Since his first gig in January 2008 Josh has had a remarkable impact on the comedy circuit. In just three years he has been named FHM Stand Up Hero 2010 (ITV4), Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2010 and after just a handful of gigs made it to the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funnyfinal at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008.
Now regarded as one of the best up-and-coming acts on the UK circuit Josh is in constant demand at clubs and theatres across Britain. Josh is fast establishing himself on the live circuit supporting huge comic talent such as Kevin Bridges, Michael McIntyre, Alan Carr and Shappi Khorsandi. 2011 will see Josh take his first hour show, Other People, to the Edinburgh Festival.
Other than stand-up Josh has been busy taking part in BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Arthur Smith’s Balham Bash, BBC Radio 5 Live’s Fighting Talk, Absolute Radio’s Rock n’ Roll Football and ITV4’s Mark Watson Kick’s Off.
He has also written for Michael McIntyre, Mock The Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and BBC Radio 4’s Look Away Now.
PHIL JERROD: NEANDERTHAL
In his debut show at the Edinburgh Festival, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year nominee and winner of Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival Best Debut 2015, Phil Jerrod unravels the mess that is modern life. Come and watch this eloquent bearded weirdo persuade you there's really not that much to worry about after all. As seen at the Pleasance Reserve 2014. 'A comic whose instinctive mastery of his form immediately marks him out as one to watch' (Guardian).
