Josh Widdicombe

Since his first gig in 2008 Josh has had a remarkable impact on the comedy circuit. In just two years he has been named 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

Beyond stand up, in 2009 Josh wrote and performed in the show Superclump at the Edinburgh Festival, receiving critical acclaim and packed audiences throughout the run. UK comedy website Chortle described the show as "a fresh, assured and funny debut, with imaginative ideas executed with wit and talent". Also at the festival he appeared in Mark Watson's interactive play The Hotel, which won a Fringe First award. At the previous year's festival he performed in stand up showcases South By South Wales at the Gilded Balloon and the Amused Moose Hot Starlets.

Josh has performed on Arthur Smith's Balham Bash on Radio Four and appeared as a guest on the Frank Skinner Show on Absolute Radio.
