What Is Improv Comedy?
Simply put, improvisation comedy is an unscripted comedy act that relies on the performer’s spontaneity and, in some cases, audience’s contribution.
While classic stand-up comedy may sometimes seem impromptu, performers rehearse their gigs and integrate the same antics into them.
With improv comedy, however, you can see an entertainer in full display of their skill.
Improv comedians are specialized in quick-witted remarks and audience interaction. They would draw inspiration from virtually anything comes to their mind, all while using minimal props.
The result? A never-seen-before show.

- sleight-of-hand illusions,
- informative bits about tricks.
What’s more, this also enabled Joshua to become a fairly appropriate candidate for motivational speeches as well.
He is often invited to schools, where he combines both tricks and inspirational discourse, in an attempt to make students more empathetic in a fun and relaxed manner.
What’s best, attendees get something from Joshua’s show, so you can say it has educational value as well.
A refreshing twist within his acts is this: Joshua would talk about how illusionist trick us into falling for their stunts while performing those stunts.
This is what makes for a unique – even if a bit dizzying – experience Joshua can deliver to his spectators.
