This is a show where Josh tidies up
Tidying up is not normally the stuff of gripping drama, it wouldn’t be a propulsive narrative for most people but for Josh it’s Everest, a fundamentally impossible task, like trying to defy the moon and control the tides.
Josh’s brain has managed to make him the author and star of hit TV shows (Please Like Me, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay), in this show he tries to work out how to do the small stuff. “One of the biggest struggles in my life is trying to tidy up,” says Josh. But it's not just about tidying, there's also gardening, gophers and a love story. “It’s about how much we’re meant to accept how sh*t we are”.
Written with award-winning playwright, Lally Katz who is best known for The Rabbits (2015), Neighbourhood Watch (2011) and Charlie Mudd (2009). Josh says this collaboration brings a layer of structure, “the show is more complex, deep and emotionally complicated than my previous live shows”.
Known for making his work hilariously relatable and not to shy away from difficult topics, you can expect Let’s Tidy Up to be no different.
