Why did I want to talk with stand-up comedian Josh Johnson? On a sleepless night, I came across Josh's brilliant stand-up comedy special "Up Here Killing Myself". I truly laughed and cried as it is one of the most unique comedy specials I've ever seen. Josh and I discussed the comedy special which includes cut-away scenes in which he is talking to an off-camera therapist and how it ties into the overall narrative of the special. We also talk about perspectives on addiction, personal growth, and self-examination as well as his personal journey from a poor upbringing to a stand-up, Emmy-nominated writer, performer, and NAACP award-winner from Louisiana by way of Chicago. He is currently a writer on The Daily Show and is a former writer and performer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he made his late-night debut. Johnson is Comedy Central’s ‘most watched comedian ever’ with 40M+ views to date across their platforms. This is Josh Johnson Knockin' Doorz Down.
