Known for his vast number of appearances across many of the country’s favourite comedy panel shows, curly haired Devonian Josh Widdicombe will be in Southampton on the 4th October to make the audience of the Nuffield Theatre cry with laughter.
Widdicombe started performing back in 2008 and got to the final of ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in that same year. He has performed at the festival every year since in different capacities, but since 2008 has firmly established himself as one of the country’s best-loved comedians. His comedy news show The Last Leg, which he presents alongside Aussie Adam Hills and Alex Brooker, has gone from strength to strength. Starting off as a show that originally ran alongside the 2012 Summer Paralympics every night following the main coverage on Channel 4, The Last Leg has received nominations at the British Comedy Awards and Broadcast Awards, whilst winning at the Royal Television Society Awards.
The Hammersmith-born star has also been working on his own sitcom, Josh, which he co-wrote with fellow comedian Tom Craine and is directed by David Schneider. A pilot of the show was aired on BBC Three in August of last year and has since been picked up for an entire first series, which is expected to air at some point this year.
Whilst Widdicombe has been concentrating on panel shows and his sitcom, he has been away from the stand-up circuit, in his spare time he has found a lot of minor things to get annoyed about, and will be talking about all of them whilst on his Work In Progress Tour.
