Bio

 

Josh Earl is one of the funniest comedians in Australia with a CV most performers would dream of. An award winning live performer (Fringeworld Best Comedy) plus years of experience in TV (Spicks and Specks, MICF Allstars Gala), radio (3RRRfm Breakfasters) and print (Sunday Tasmanian, Frankie) Josh also has 11 sold out Melbourne International Comedy Festival Seasons to his name.

His most popular offerings has been Josh Earl is a Librarian and Josh Earl vs The Australian Women’s Weekly Childrens Birthday Cake Book, a show so popular the Womens Weekly republished the book off the back of it.

In 2014 he was chosen as the replacement host for Spicks and Specks and while it may not have turned out the way he wanted it gave him ample material for his live shows which keep going from strength to strength with sell out crowds and glowing reviews.
