I TALK TO Josh Pugh

English Comedian of the Year 2016 Josh Pugh is making his Edinburgh Fringe debut with A Boy Named Pugh, just three years after first performing comedy.

He might not have performed at the Fringe yet with his own hour but already Josh has racked up an impressive number of accolades.


He won the Midland New Act of the Year in 2014 and the following year went on to win the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award 2015 and the Nottingham Comedy Festival New Act of the Year Award 2015 before going on to win the Midland New Act of the Year for a second year. In 2016 he came third in the NATYS (formerly Hackney New Empire Comedian of the Year) before going on to win English Comedian of the Year 2016.


So this is your first Edinburgh Fringe...
