Comedian Josh Thomas is making his much-anticipated return to the live stand-up world, with a national tour in 2024 called ‘Let’s Tidy Up’.
The show has been written alongside award-winning playwright Lally Katz, and will have its Australian premiere at none other than Sydney Opera House before heading to Canberra, Hobart, Newcastle, Cairns, Perth, Melbourne, Toowoomba, Brisbane and Adelaide.
This comes after a 20-date tour of North America through November and December.
Josh kicked off his comedy career when he won Australia’s most prestigious stand-up comedy competition, at 17. Since then, he’s sold out several tours, starred on TV panel shows, and even turned his hand to writing, acting and producing. In this venture he’s picked up a swag of awards and earned glowing reviews, for television comedies like ‘Please Like Me’ and ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Okay’.
Josh is currently working on a series in development with Hulu and 20th called ‘Good Person’.
Tidying up is not normally gripping stuff, but for Josh it’s like Everest – a fundamentally impossible task, like trying to defy the moon and control the tides. This live stand-up show is a show where Josh tidies up, but there’s also gardening, gophers, and a love story.
“In this show I’m going to be talking about tidying up. Which doesn’t sound very fun. But I promise it’s going to be very fun,” Josh assures.
“I’m looking forward to seeing you all. Let’s get lit!”
Tickets go on sale 17 November.
