Since his first gig in January 2008 Josh Widdicombe 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 Funny final 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 supporting huge comic talent such as Kevin Bridges, Russell Howard, Michael McIntyre, Alan Carr, Stephen Merchant and Shappi Khorsandi on their respective live tours.
2011 saw Josh take his first full 1-hour show, Other People, to the Edinburgh Festival. In 2012, Josh Widdicombe became a regular on Stand Up for the Week and in July the same year he made his debut appearance on Mock the Week. He was also a main contributor to Channel 4's daily alternative review of each day's events at the London 2012 Summer Paralympics, The Last Leg with Adam Hills, alongside Adam Hills and Alex Brooker. He also appeared on The Last Leg of the Year, the end of year special of the show.
Other than stand-up Josh Widdicombe 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 also hosts the coveted Saturday mid-morning slot on XFM with his much-loved radio show regularly featuring in the iTunes Podcast Top 10.
Josh has also written for Michael McIntyre, Mock The Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and BBC Radio 4′s Look Away Now. In November 2013 he hosted Live at The Apollo.
We are all very pleased with Josh on Friday. He was very professional, funny and so easy to work with. Most importantly he also went down extremely well with our audience.
