Star of Channel 4’s ‘The Last Leg’, ‘Stand Up for the Week’ and BBC1’s ‘Mock the Week’ and ‘Live at the Apollo’, Josh Widdicombe returns to the road this autumn touring his brand new show ‘Incidentally…’

Josh has had an incredible 18 months and is now one of the most in demand and highly regarded comedians in the UK for both his live stand-up and TV work. Highlights include; two sell-out UK tours and two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, an Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee, three series of the critically acclaimed hit Channel 4 show ‘The Last Leg’, with regular appearances on BBC1’s ‘Mock The Week’, Channel 4’s ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’, and ‘Channel 4’s Comedy Gala in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital’ 2012 and 2013.


Josh also hosts the coveted Saturday mid-morning slot on XFM with his much-loved radio show regularly featuring in the iTunes Podcast Top 10.


Josh will record his debut DVD Josh Widdicombe Live – And Another Thing… from the Hammersmith Apollo, as part of a double DVD record with Seann Walsh, on Thursday 26th September. It will then be released by Universal Pictures (UK) on 18th November. Pre-orders now available from www.amazon.co.uk.
