In 2022 Josh was nominated for Best Newcomer at Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards for his critically acclaimed sell-out show Waste of Space. He was previously a finalist for the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award, which he subsequently went on to judge on BBC Three. Josh was also nominated for Outstanding On-Screen Talent Featured in a Production at the 2022 Royal Television Society Northern Ireland Awards for hosting Fast Food Face-Off for BBC Three.
**** “Josh is purely about entertaining and making his audience laugh for an hour.”
**** “Full of confidence, Josh has a presence on stage that’s rare to find in a comedian so early on in their career and has the audience hanging on his every word, and crucially, laughing very loudly along with what he has to say.”
