Josh Johnson: Up Here Killing Myself is a one-hour stand-up wherein Johnson touches upon topics of money, his father, and more.
Josh Johnson: Up Here Killing Myself is premiering on February 17, on Peacock.
“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. 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.”
The comedian, also an Emmy-nominated writer, is currently a writer on The Daily Show.
The clip sees the comic speak in a dual set-up – at a therapist’s office and at a stand-up show. He covers topics such as being poor in Louisiana, people he still owes money to, and so on.
