Josh Johnson has shared the same stage as Trevor Noah and worked on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Now, he will have his opportunity to shine as the lead act of a comedy special. Johnson will take his talents to Peacock for an hourlong comedy special by the name of Up Here Killing Myself.
“Comedian Josh Johnson transforms an hour of talk therapy about his relationships with money, his father, and a stalker, into an hour of stand-up,” the synopsis reads.
“In this comedic exploration of black mental health and self-discovery, Josh shares with his therapist, and the audience, his thoughts on growing up without money, grieving, and firing his first gun. There is no subject too big, small, or intimate for Josh to parse through in his first Peacock comedy special.”
Johnson is not the only rising comic to have their time in the spotlight on NBC’s premium streaming platform. Within the last year, Sean Patton and Ayssa Lamperis have also shared specials with Peacock. Check out the trailer for Josh Johnson’s special as he nears the February 17th release of Up Here Killing Myself.
