Josh Williams
Josh was born funny, but needed to frustrate coworkers in several different fields before realizing his dream of becoming a stand-up comic. After getting fired from 5-Star hotels, big name retail stores, restaurants, corporate telecommunications, and even as an electrician, he knew it was time to take the stage... In late 2008, he performed his first stand-up set, at an open mic, in front of 50 people in a leaky campus basement. Despite the conditions, the show was fantastic. Two weeks later, Josh took the stage on "Pro/Am Night" at Absolute Comedy, Canada's hottest comedy club. In front of a sold out crowd, the laughter was intoxicating, and he's never looked back. Less than a year after beginning his comedy career, he created "The Dark and Dirty Show", a bi-monthly show that caters to a crowd that prefers its comedy with more of an edge. The show continues to be produced by Josh, and takes place at Absolute Comedy, in Ottawa, Ontario. During 2009, while continuing to grow and hone his craft, he performed in cities including Ottawa, London, Montreal, and Toronto. His style is based on making fun of hot button issues, but he approaches the subjects as an innocent, well meaning fool, who often doesn't understand the full scope of the matter, and thus ends up the butt of every joke.
