JOSH WADE | Adds by-demand Gold Coast + Perth shows to upcoming 17-date national tour

Frontier Comedy are pleased to announce that sharp-witted online superstar Josh Wade has added Gold Coast and Perth shows to his upcoming national tour which kicks off in just two weeks. Josh will perform his show Me, Myself and Cunny at the State Theatre Centre of WA on Friday 22 September and The Arts Centre Gold Coast on Saturday 23 September.

Josh spent the first half of the year performing across the country to sold out crowds at Perth’s Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival. Now it’s regional Australia’s turn to catch Josh live on stage, with a massive 17-date tour across the country, including encore shows in Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth to meet  demand. In Me, Myself and Cunny Josh explores his relationship with the many masks and characters he has developed throughout his lifetime as an attempt to fit in, his 20 year quest to find his comedic counterpart ‘Cunny’ and his decision to leave Cunny behind at the end of this tour. No topic is left untouched in this show that promises to be shocking, crude, uncomfortable, but most all – honest.

‘Wade has mastered the recipe of tongue-in-cheek, razor-sharp wit, audience participation and remarkable natural talent. Needless to say, the world can’t get enough of his entertaining vulgarity.’ – This Is Radelaide

‘An engaging storyteller.’ – The Music

First creating viral online content from his Townsville home at just 13, Josh developed a passion for acting, comedy and video production. His online comedy career skyrocketed at the beginning of 2013 with the release of his sketch Shit Aussies Say and hugely popular street interviews in his series Aussie Opinion. These and various clips thrust Josh into the bright lights of Los Angeles where he filmed his series Guide to America. Josh’s growing fan base and early success encouraged him to craft and adapt his online material into a one hour solo stand-up comedy show. In 2014 Josh performed his debut show I’m Josh Wade at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival, receiving rave reviews for a string of 33 sold-out shows. Josh went on to sell out his entire 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival runs, as well as two national tours in 2015 and 2016.

‘Nothing is safe in this weird and wacky one hour observation of himself and today’s society.’ – Beat Magazine

‘Josh takes on characters, showcasing his versatile acting talent and clever audiovisual skills…we’re excited to see what he dreams up next’ – The Adelaidian

‘Not for the easily offended…audiences are sure to be shocked by Cunny’s antics but that is what his fans have come to expect.’ – Weekend Notes

Most recently, in addition to touring his live show, Josh is working on his debut podcast The Cunspiracy Podcast featuring guests such as Frenchy, Neel Kolhatkar and Casey Donovan. The Youtube podcast has already reached over 175,000 views across its first 15 episodes. In May he released the premiere episode of a documentary series – the first episode covers Australia’s largest weed protest and has reached over 10,000 views, with more episodes coming soon. Additionally, Josh’s new weekly webseries Cunspiracy sees Josh tackle subjects such as Pauline Hanson, the future of the media and  Schappelle Corby, and is averaging 20,000 views per episode so far.

Josh, who is currently listed in the Top 100 Australian YouTubers, has earned himself one of the largest comedy fan bases in Australia gathering over 1 million online followers. With a constantly growing online presence garnering him thousands of new fans each day, this young comedian has cemented himself as a worldwide prospect for Australian comedy and beyond. Don’t miss Josh this August and September as he takes the laughs offline for a mammoth 17-date tour across Australia!
