By client request, he starred as the Scottish Mini Man in two commercials he wrote for Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Minis. As a voice actor, he was the voice of Dan The Chameleon in a US and European commercial for Hubba Bubba Max that was animated by Oscar-winning Aardman Animations. His cartoon illustrations and comedic columns have run in The Ottawa Citizen. He’s a graduate of the Second City Conservatory for improv, has done stand-up at Yuk Yuk’s amateur nights, founded a comedy troupe with Steve Patterson (who is now host of CBC's The Debaters), and hosted/produced 4 years of shows on Rogers Community Cable.

The Toronto Star devoted a half-page to his pursuits as a green comedian, such as his hip hop marriage proposal to environmentalist Laurie David that’s earned kudos from everyone from Ed Begley Jr. to David Suzuki and was featured on The Comedy Network. His "Love Song For Elizabeth May" went viral during the 2011 federal election, landing Josh in the news across Canada and helping to elect Canada's first Green MP. Yahoo! News named it one of Canada’s top ten political videos of the year.
