Josh Berry is a mimic, stand-up comedian and writer best known for his impressions of celebrities (most notably Andy Murray and James Acaster). Josh began impressions as a child, initially impersonating his own mother, a penchant which (despite her requests), has worked its way into his adult stand-up comedy routines. In a desperate attempt to shake off a witheringly middle-class image, Josh began his career by doing impressions of tennis players whilst obtaining a degree at Oxford University (an achievement of which he is simultaneously proud and ashamed). Like many with a facility for voices, Josh’s professional career began in radio. In 2017 he began working for Union Jack Radio, providing the station with topical comedy content and writing and voicing the satirical impressions sketch series ‘Josh Berry’s Fake News’ (2018-19) a show described by one listener as ‘sickeningly well-written and produced’ and by his own father as ‘quite good in parts’.

Josh does a lot of voiceover and radio work* and has won the respect of Radio 4’s rowdy and often violent audiences after multiple appearances on ‘The Now Show’ and ‘Dead Ringers’. Josh has completed two Edinburgh Fringe runs, in 2019 won the Brighton Fringe ‘Director’s Choice Award’ for his show ‘Voice Thief’ and regularly sells out shows around the UK. A young man described as ‘already on par with the likes of Rory Bremner, Jon Culshaw and Ronnie Ancona at just 23’ (Fringe Review), Josh clearly has the talent for a great career and that odious brand of Oxbridge arrogance to believe that’s precisely what he deserves.
*but he is always on the hunt for more 😉
