Funnyman Josh heading to Redditch's Palace Theatre for a summer of fun

Redditch Editorial 29th Feb, 2016 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016   0

IN A major coup the Palace Theatre in Redditch has managed to secure a show by Josh Widdicombe – that guy from the TV comedy shows with the curly hair.

Since he’s been away from stand up Josh has been working hard on other things – but don’t worry in his spare time he has found a lot of minor things to get annoyed about, and now he has a chance to talk about them on stage (in the form of jokes).

Since he was last on tour Josh’s Channel 4 show The Last Leg has gone from strength to strength and been nominated for various awards including a British Comedy Award and a Broadcast Award, while finally winning one at the Royal Television Society Awards.

He has also been seen on BBC2’s Mock the Week and QI, BBC1’s Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News for You and ITV1’s The Jonathan Ross Show, amongst other stuff.

If it is only his voice you like then he is now the host of BBC5Live’s Saturday morning sport show Fighting Talk and The Josh Widdicombe Show on Xfm.

Most exciting of all he has also written and starred in his own sitcom Josh which will be broadcast on BBC3 in autumn.
