Watch Josh In Action

“When I was 25 years old, it came to my attention that I had never had a girlfriend. At the time, I was actually under the impression that I was in a relationship, so this bit of news came as something of a shock.”

Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down each of the girls he had tried to date since middle school and asked them straight up: What went wrong? He shares the results of this semiscientific investigation in a hilarious live performance.

From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), and a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, it’s a story about looking for love—or at least a girlfriend—in all the wrong places.

Poignant, relatable, and wholly hilarious, this interactive show is for anyone who has ever wondered, "Is there something wrong with me?"

(Spoiler Alert: the answer is no.)

A sensitive, thought-provoking standup comedy show that likes long walks on the beach and inspires students to reflect on:

– Mental health and positive body-image
– Disability and diversity awareness
– Love, dating, and relationships
