Comedian Josh Waldron HOLLYWOOD IMPROV, FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB, COMEDY STORE LIVE, 1010 WILSHIRE BLVD COMEDY,
I was once awarded the Arrow of Light in Boy Scouts. I was so proud of myself, until I found out it was only given to the boys who made it out without being molested. 20 years later, I am still dating those kind of men.
I have spent the last 12 years as a writer and a performer, moving from stage to television and on to producing several sketch comedy series, most notably for Sony Pictures. During this time I was also an award winning hip hop dancer and a personal trainer. I am no longer in shape, but have traded in my gym membership for body dysmorphia.
I started pursuing my goal of becoming a stand up comedian in 2011 and have been annoying friends and family with event invites ever since. WEBSITE | |
