'Guardian sports reporter turned ace observationalist Josh Widdicombe has the ability to find the sparkle in the mundane that puts him in line to be the next Sean Lock' - The Guardian
2011 Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee Josh Widdicombe tours the hotly-anticipated follow up to his critically acclaimed debut show.
Star of Channel 4's Stand Up for the Week and BBC1's Live at the Apollo, Josh's eagerly awaited brand new show deals with his inability to embrace adventure in his life, his continued frustration with everything he comes into contact with. Unable to relax and enjoy life, Josh has instead decided it is everyone else that is at fault for his lack of enthusiasm for leaving the house.
Since his first gig in January 2008 Josh has had a remarkable impact on the comedy circuit. In just four years he has been named Loaded Lafta Best Newcomer Nominee 2012, Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee 2011, Chortle Best Breakthrough Act nominee 2011, FHM Stand Up Hero winner 2010 (ITV4), Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2010.
Now regarded as one of the best up-and-coming acts in the UK, Josh is in constant demand at clubs and theatres across the nation, both in his solo shows and as support for the likes of Stephen Merchant, Alan Carr, Kevin Bridges and Michael McIntyre.
Outside the realms of stand-up, Josh has been busy taking part as a regular in two series of Channel 4's Stand Up for the Week, Channel 4's Comedy Gala Live At The 02 2012, Mock the Week (BBC1), The Rob Brydon Show (BBC2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Edinburgh Fest Comedy Gala (BBC3), BBC Radio 4's Loose Ends, Arthur Smith's Balham Bash, BBC Radio 5Live's Fighting Talk and Absolute Radio's Rock n' Roll Football. Also an accomplished writer, Josh has written regularly for Guardian Sports online.
