2011’s Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee Josh Widdicombe, will be touring his hotly-anticipated follow upto his critically acclaimed debut show. Josh will be playing ‘The Further Adventures of…’ to audiences across the UK this autumn.
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.

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 (BBC 3), BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Arthur Smith’s Balham Bash, BBC Radio 5Live’s Fighting Talk andAbsolute Radio’s Rock n’ Roll Football.
