Huw Joseph is a comedic singer-songwriter born in the UK, raised in Melbourne and now based in London. He has built a reputation as a very talented, quirky and consistent performer with influences including Frank Zappa, Tim Minchin, Flight of the Conchords, Kings Of Leon, Tenacious D, Jeff Buckley (to name a few) so you can expect far from just a usual musical comedy show. He can hold his own musically on vocals and guitar, the band is incredibly tight and the songs are all structured pop rock with comedy lyrics so this truly is a world where music and comedy combine for an extremely entertaining show satisfying punters of both genre’s.
“Huw Joseph is a name that is becoming increasingly eminent and synonymous with eclectic comedy music on the local and international arts scene”. Beat Magazine.
His exceptional song writing, musical idea’s and stage presence all combine for a show that entertains audiences in a way not often seen. Radio-style pop rock tunes meets cheeky irreverent humour that will have you bopping along before you’ve even realised what’s just been said, and what will then have you ROFL-ing – Yes, we used a dodgy interweb acronym and didn’t even apologise… wild. A true showman he always puts in a huge amount of effort to bring something new, whether a sketch / part / surprise guest, to each show.
He has built a strong underground following after performing over 300 shows in his 7 year career around Australia and the UK including several festival appearances at Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, St Kilda Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Fringe and many more. He can either perform engaging intimate solo acoustic shows or rock out with his full live band ‘Huw Joseph and the Immoral Support Band’ to packed music venues holding down either scenario effortlessly. With a lot of experience under his belt he is definitely a comfortable and versatile performer, a true professional.
“Huw Joseph is an adept interpreter of the human condition, and has a way of translating it into song that will touch, tickle, and sometimes give you a cheeky slap in all the right places.” The Age
“Huw mixes original, sharp funny music with great melodies and feeling. Totally rad rocking s**t from one hilariously cool guy. We love his songs musically but they also crack us up! What more can you ask for??” Jesse and Ella Hooper (Killing Heidi)
Huw blasted his way into commercial radio breakfast host roles for Australia’s largest media network Southern Cross Austereo in 2012, earning a nomination for ‘Best Newcomer On-Air’ at the 2013 Australian Commercial Radio Award’s and has just celebrated the milestone of being on air for 1 year at UK’s premier uncensored radio station FUBAR www.fubarradio.com You can hear his weekly shows every Tues 4-6pm with Doc Brown (Ben Bailey Smith) and Friday’s 1-4pm with Mikill Pane www.fubarradio.com
