Josia Elliott hails from a small Mountain Town in Wyoming.
At age 7, Josia attended to Meadowlark Elementary School where she majored in:
- field trips
- lying about how many laps she’d done in P.E class
At home, Josia spent most of her time watching cartoons, pretending to have special mutant powers and annoying her family. In hopes of gaining some peace and quiet, Josia’s mother would often place her in front of the TV and allow her to watch shows like SNL, In Living Color and Ren & Stimpy. During Josia’s formative years, she would go to class and act out “things she’d seen on TV”, and spent most of her high school days in the Principal’s office. It should be noted that the Principal of Josia’s high school was her father. Yeah. Not kidding.
Upon graduation she set forth into the world.
One evening, she found herself at an open mic in Fort Collins, Colorado. She told some jokes, got some laughs and nearly peed her pants from fright. She knew she’d found her calling. The local comedians took her in as one of their own, calling her “talented” and “edgy” and “lopsided“. They said all of this while looking at her boobs. Encouraged, determined, and strangely aroused, she moved to Los Angeles with aspirations of world domination…
And so far, it’s coming along. You can now barely see Josia in Tenacious D‘s music videos “Roadie” and “Rise of the Fenix”, guest starring with various sketch comedy groups around Los Angeles, or yukking it up on the Main Stage at the World Famous Comedy Store. In May of 2013, Josia brought laughs back to her homeland of Wyoming with the ‘May There Be Comedy Tour’ alongside fellow Wyoming-raised comic Brandt Tobler. In October of 2013, Josia embarked on a 4 state, multi-city Comedy and Blues tour with musician Micah Wyatt and the Barefoot Band. In 2014 Josia has appeared in several viral Buzzfeed videos, hopes to do more because they are goofy and fun.
You can look forward to seeing Josia on tour in a town near you in the fall of 2014.
