376 - Josh Johnson

Josh Johnson doesn't put a foot wrong. This masterful young US comic never stops working and is reaping the benefits with a place in the Daily Show writers' room, and two brand new releases: his own music/comedy collaboration "Mixtape", and his debut special "# (Hashtag)".

We encounter a really thoughtful approach to his art, and talk about his possibly unique combination of comedy and non-comic original music; explore embellishment; and how "playing to his weakness" serves his material...

20ish minutes of extra content available exclusively to Insiders as Josh ruminates on vulnerabilities, approach, and how not even the most vexatious of Uber drivers can knock back the offer of free fried chicken.

Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much more, including the exclusive Insiders Q&As with Nish Kumar, James Acaster and Alfie Brown, and your invite to the forthcoming ones with Fern Brady and a “self-help for comedians” special with Amanda Donnet (MClinPsych)
