About the Comics

Josh Johnson

Josh Johnson is an Emmy-nominated writer, stand-up, actor, and NAACP award-winner from Louisiana by way of Chicago. He is currently a writer on "The Daily Show" and is a former writer and performer on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," where he made his late-night debut in 2017. In addition, Johnson is Comedy Central’s "most watched comedian ever" with 40M+ views to date across their platforms.

As a stand-up, Johnson headlines clubs, colleges, and festivals around the world. In 2015, he was named one of Comedy Central’s “Comic to Watch,” in 2016 a “New Face” at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, and in 2018 the winner of the “New York's Funniest” competition at the New York Comedy Festival.

Johnson’s most recent stand-up special, "Josh Johnson: Up Here Killing Myself," premiered on Peacock earlier this year to rave reviews touting Josh as a “naturally gifted story teller.” Comedy Central released Johnson’s first hour-long special "#(Hashtag)" in June 2021.

Johnson’s self-released comedy and music mixtape album "Elusive" was described by Vanyaland as “live stand-up observational humor with musical compositions. Both elements wade in and out of political and social waters between the two “arcs” of the multi-genre epic". Johnson also co-hosts the weekly podcast "The Josh Johnson Show" (with fellow stand-up Logan Nielsen).

Johnson’s other credits include, "CONAN" (TBS), "@Midnight," "Kevin Hart's Hart of The City," "The New Negroes," and 'This Week at The Comedy Cellar" on Comedy Central.

Johnson lives in New York and can be seen performing regularly at The Comedy Cellar.
