#067: Josh Wade – Stop caring what people think

By Jordan Michaelides

Josh Wade ( @joshwadecomedy ) is a comedian, entertainer, podcast host, and co-founder of Verve Network. Josh has built an incredible comedy career at a very young age, forged in the pits of YouTube with his character “Cunny”.

If I was a comedian, I feel that my style would be very much in line with Josh. He’s just as skeptical as I am, always questioning what’s real and what’s a mirage – all the while looking to improve both himself and others. He’s almost like a young Aussie George Carlin.

When we spoke last time he made mention of his business Verve briefly, but in this episode we really got to hear about what his plans are, and potentially what the next few years looks like for a guy who’s chomping at the bit to get shit done.

A brilliant chat as always, we covered many topics including:

  • Living with Frenchy and Neel Kolhatkar
  • Organisation and flow
  • His mum and self-reflection
  • Conspiracy theories, skepticism
  • Verve Network
  • Starting his business, playing the game
  • Old & new media, content creators
  • Middle-ground: War and 9/11
  • The Las Vegas shooting
  • Western civilisation, identity, culture
  • The Josh Wade Show
