Since his first gig in January 2008, Josh Widdicombe has had a remarkable impact on the comedy circuit.
Within just a few years he was named FHM Stand Up Hero 2010, 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 Funny final at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008.
After fast establishing himself on the live circuit supporting comedians such as Stephen Merchant, Kevin Bridges, Michael McIntyre and Alan Carr, Josh has gone on to have two sell-out UK tours and two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival and an Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nomination.
Josh is now best known from the award-winning Channel 4 series The Last Leg, as well as his critically acclaimed BBC sitcom JOSH and his role as team captain on BBC Two’s Insert Name Here.
Josh has starred in BBC One’s Live At The Apollo, Would I Lie To You, Have I Got News For You and Celebrity Mastermind, BBC Two’s QI, Mock the Week and Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats and Alan Carr: Chatty Man.
Furthermore, Josh hosted a hit Xfm radio show for two years before departing to take over as host of the 5Live show Fighting Talk which he hosted for a couple of years.
Never forgetting his stand up roots, Josh continues to tour, performing to sell-out audiences.
