House of Stand Up Presents Colchester Comedy with Josh Howie
Josh Howie was raised as a Buddhist, before living with Native Americans and finally settling down as a trainee Rabbi. At least that was the plan until he was kicked off the program for getting caught with a naked (non-Jewish) girl. Perhaps it was inevitable that he would go on to become a stand-up comic.
Performing regularly at all the major comedy clubs around the UK, so far this year Josh has also taken his distinctive brand of humour to Ireland, France, China and Thailand. He has also written and performed two solo shows for the Edinburgh Festival, before sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre; his hugely successful debut solo Fringe stand up show, entitled Chosen, which played to sell out audiences and received rave reviews at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival, and returning in August 2010 with Josh Howie: Gran Slam, based on his time living with his grandmother. Another distinctive and highly original show, Gran Slam also went down a storm with audiences and critics alike.
Josh has been filmed for the Comedy Central shows Comedy Store, World Stands Up and Comedy Blue and can currently be seen as the presenter of Movie Geek, the Sky Movies show that offers all the latest news in the world of cinema. Often praised for his writing talent, Josh is a regular contributor to The Guardian, a reviewer for Sky Movies Magazine, and writes a weekly column ‘Fears of a Clown’ for blokely.com.
Howie is an intelligent comedian who knows how to amuse, shock and move an audience in equal measures - Time Out
