Josh Alfred, a comedian and skit maker, aka Josh2funny, has opened up about his now famous performance at the TV reality show, America’s Got Talent.
He revealed that the organisers of America’s Got Talent invited him to the show for comic relief.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, he said, “I was invited to the show to do what I do. I went there to display ‘Josh2funny’, which is what my comedy is about.”
Recall that the Internet went agog during the week when the video of his audition went viral. In the clip, the comedian was rejected by the judges after he claimed to be a speed reader. He claimed to have read three books within a minute but when the judges asked him questions from the book, he could not tell the content.
Shortly after being told ‘no’, the comedian appeared on stage again as the fastest rapper. After the second ‘no’, he returned as a magician.
Josh2funny’s comic performance at the AGT is similar to his social media content, ‘The Audition’, where he plays different funny characters such as a magician, singer, actor and a cook.
Seemingly excited to have performed his content on an international stage, Josh made a post on his Instagram with the caption, “Jesus put me on the biggest stage in the world.”
Thanking his fans and supporters, he wrote, “Thanks to all the magazines and journals writing about me. Thanks to my fans that always believed. Thanks to the people that respect the work I and my team put in. Thanks to Kreb.”
Meanwhile, the post of the comedian’s performance on AGT’s Twitter page has garnered over 128,000 likes as of the time of filing this report.
