Who is Josh Castro?


What makes my act special is the unique view of the world through a comedic lens of a 3rd generation Mexican-American bringing a new generation of Mexican culture awareness to light. Born and raised in El Paso TX, border town, growing up was weird “I’m too white to be Mexican, I’m too Mexican to be white.”  As a kid, Josh was picked on by local “Cholo” bullies, but quickly learned how to avoid fighting and conflicts with humor. Josh realized he had a gift with comedy. Josh started doing comedy in San Antonio TX in 2012, in between college semesters.

  • Josh is great... One of the funniest guys I know in Austin, TX. You'll have to see him live to see for yourself!

  • As a touring comic Josh is one of the most energetic performers I have had the pleasure to perform with. His writing calls back to the late 80's and 90's when comic spent time crafting jokes and not just saying them. His knowledge of stand up is one that I have never come across and it reflects on him as soon as the mic comes out of the stand. Not someone to be missed or over looked.
