      Bio

      Announced this year as a ‘New Face of Comedy’ at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, Josh can next be seen featured on ‘Hart of the City’ with Kevin Hart on Comedy Central this fall and was recently added to the writing staff for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In 2015 he was named one of Comedy Central’s comics to watch, and with a calendar filled with festivals and over 70+ college dates this year alone, stand-up comedian and writer Josh Johnson is quickly becoming one of the fastest rising stars of the year. A native of Louisiana and Chicago-bred comic, Josh has performed at festivals across the country such as Bridgetown, Out of Bounds, New York Comedy Festival, and Riot LA. Josh was a 2014 NBC Stand Up for Diversity semifinalist, and the 2015 winner of Snubfest in Chicago and the Devil Cup in New York.

      In his one-man show Awkward Hugs With Beautiful Women, Josh weaves tales of his dating misadventures in a show the Chicago Tribune called both “honest” and “so sitcom-like in [its] implausibility that in several instances Johnson covers his own mouth in incredulity.”
      Josh is a contributing writer for The Whiskey Journal and Empire News, and a former ensemble member of Under The Gun Theater in Chicago, where he also cofounded monthly comedy show The Attic. He currently lives in Brooklyn with his roommate’s dog.

      “[Josh] Johnson is only 24 years old and probably shouldn’t be this good this soon.” - The Chicago Tribune
