Bridget Christie and Comedy Friends
4 December 2023
Everyone's favourite gobby Manc princess and Edinburgh Comedy Awards' Best Newcomer nominee, Josh Jones, brings his show 'Gobsmacked' to Leicester Square Theatre later this month. We got the lowdown on Josh's strangest fan encounter, most memorable heckle and much more in his very own Leicester Square Questionnaire.
What’s your most memorable heckle?
Some guy in the front row flashed his balls at me and I would describe his genitals as being memorable but I do think that was my strangest heckle.
Where do you go for your pre/post Leicester Square Theatre gig food?
There’s a pizza place I can’t remember the name of I just know how to get there but loads of comics have taken me before and it is delicious.
What’s one word to describe the state of the UK?
Who’s the best upcoming performer in the country that we haven’t heard of?
Jack McLean. He’s doing my tour support at this date, you’re gonna love him! Proper funny.
Who would you describe as your arch-nemesis?
The have all been destroyed.
When was the time you bombed the most onstage?
I never drink before a gig anymore because I once went onstage after nearly two bottles of wine and cried. To be fair that was about seven years ago but it still haunts my dreams.
What’s been your strangest fan encounter?
One guy on Instagram sent me a message saying “oh I’ve just seen you” and then sent me a photo of me walking out of the building I lived in which was pretty creepy. I moved shortly after.
Where’s your favourite place to tour?
I should say London because this is for the London date but it’s definitely doing the hometown date in Manchester!
How do you like to relax after a gig?
If I’m with friends just have a little chat and laugh, and if I am on my own I listen to Susan Boyle to bring myself back down to earth, her voice just relaxes me.
What’s the one thing you want the audience to take away from your show?
Nothing. I want them to leave me everything they have so I can save up and buy a Tudor mock.
Would you rather have fingers as long as your legs or legs as long as your fingers?
I don’t know how I would open a Diet Coke with fingers as long as my legs, so I would have to go legs as long as my fingers.
Who would win in a fight: Badger or Baboon?
I would destroy them both! I am a dangerous man who should not be fucked with.
What’s the oddest thing you’ve overheard in London?
This is not something I overheard but I did once see a guy attacking a bin with a machete in Peckham.
Tickets are on sale now for Josh Jones: Gobsmacked, 22 November.
