New York, NY (September 16, 2021) – Daily Show writer, comedian, and artist Josh Johnson has shared “Fallin (With Groovebox & Jesse Cale),” the original work that bookends Trevor Noah Presents Josh Johnson: # (Hashtag), out September 30 via Comedy Central Records.
“In a special about the world feeling like it’s in free fall, and a year that saw me plunged even deeper into the grip of an online rat race to belong and get attention, ‘Fallin’ is the perfect theme song,” says Johnson. “It’s about comparison and connection, about letting go without being gone and taking time to catch yourself. It was co-written by me and Groovebox, who lends his incredible vocals with a feature from Jesse Cale.”
Vulture named # (Hashtag) one of the ‘Best Comedy Specials of 2021’ saying, “the best representation so far of a comedy special that attempts to bridge what just happened with an effort to reincorporate that experience into the rest of life… Johnson’s cool, controlled, endearing stage presence is completely winning.”
Variety named Johnson a ‘Comic To Watch in 2021’ and The New York Times said, “Josh Johnson is a rising star” in covering his Elusive mixtape and # (Hashtag). Johnson recently starred in “The Really Cool Converse Club” commercial directed by Tyler, The Creator.
Trevor Noah Presents Josh Johnson: #(Hashtag) is Executive Produced by Josh Johnson, Trevor Noah, Haroon Saleem, Bob Bain, Samantha Murphy, and Mainstay Entertainment’s Norm Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt, and Sanaz Yamin. Ryan Moran and Gabriella Yacyk are Executive Producers for MTV Entertainment Studios.
Johnson just crossed the 50-episode threshold of his podcast, The Josh Johnson Show, where he has freeform conversations about life, love, and comedy with his friend and fellow comedian Logan Nielsen.
