Josh2funny whose real name is Chibuike Josh Alfred is a Nigerian standup comedian, MC, and Instagram personality. He was born on the 18th of January, 1990, and hails from Anambra State, South-eastern part of Nigeria. He was born in Anambra and lived there till he was 8 years old and moved to Mushin in Lagos State where he grew up.
Josh2funny’s career kicked off as early as when he was still in secondary school. He started playing comic roles in school and was part of the debating club in his secondary school. He was under the tutelage of Koffi for a five year period where he sharpened his comedy skills. Contrary to the belief of many, Josh2funny’s comedy career didn’t start on Instagram as he was already playing shows as a standup comedian way before he joined Instagram. He saw Instagram as an opportunity to showcase his talent to more people and grow his fanbase and he capitalized on it in the growth of his career. His cross-dressed comedy skits where he plays the role of Mama Felicia with his partner Bello Kreb and also hilarious covers to songs with his hymn book turned upside down made him stood out from the numerous Nigerian Instagram comedians. The Mama Felicia character stirred up rumors that he was gay but he came out to debunk the rumors stating that the character is just for comedy and he is attracted to women and not men. He has unlocked a lot of characters recently like Juga, the OG in the hood that has a past with almost every person including celebrities and older people in the streets, also Resurrection Power, who releases hilarious and gospel inclined covers of popular secular songs with oversized, single-color coats. In 2020, he started the Don’t Leave Challenge, unarguably the biggest & most successful challenge to ever come out of Nigeria. He is currently one of the Top Ten Instagram comedians in Nigeria, a feat that we can all agree that he deserves.
Josh2funny obtained a degree in Computer Science at the Federal Science and Technical College, Yaba, and also attended a school of Performance arts, Qban Centre in Ikoyi, Lagos.
