“Hilarious…witty entertainment…Lefkowitz gives every impression that he knows what he’s doing."- Washington Post
“Lefkowitz is a nimble, witty writer… combines the comic timing of David Sedaris with the relentless inspection of Spalding Gray, but he is a clone of neither man.” - Baltimore Sun
“Bristling smart…wildly ambitious…rendered with enormous power.” - Chicago Sun-Times
“Smart, funny, with a gentle streak of hell-fire anger. My kind of guy.” - Eric Bogosian

Josh has received the Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Prize, an Avery Hopwood Award for Poetry at the University of Michigan, was a finalist for the Brooklyn Non-Fiction Prize, and won First Prize in the Singapore Poetry Contest. His poems and essays have been published at The Awl, The Offing, The Hairpin, The Rumpus, The Huffington Post, and many other places. He has also recorded humor pieces for NPR’s All Things Considered and BBC’s Americana, and previously toured a pair of one-man shows to theatres and spaces across the country.
