We had the good fortune of connecting with Josiah Smith and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Josiah, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Well first and foremost I believe all my gifts and talents come from God. Me not using them would be me not putting to use what God’s given me. I love to entertain others and have fun so creating content brings me a lot of joy, and it definitely brings me joy as well to see others enjoying my content.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart from a lot of other comedians is my goal of strictly creating clean comedy. It’s a little harder to create comedy that people enjoy without putting someone else down, including a lot of profanity, explicit images, etc. but it’s totally possible. I’m trying to prove that you can have fun, have clean comedy and still get laughs.

i’m here as a result of consistency! It’s not easy to do this every single day, but when you are doing what you enjoy, it’s worth the investment and it feels like fun (not work).

I want the world to simply be entertained through the content. I do a mixture of Comedy, Family, Faith and Inspirational videos.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Los Angeles is one of my favorite cities to live in! There are so many places I love to bring people when they comes out. Studio City (Date night), Hollywood (Site seeing), Beverly Hills (Window shopping lol), Santa Monica (Beach life), Newport Beach (STAYCATION), Malibu (Quick get away) and so many more places!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to The Arts, Media & Sports Ministry (@artsmediasports). Over the last 10 years a lot of my mentors, support, love and encouragement has come from the AMS Ministry. This ministry really helped me learn how to pursue the entertainment industry yet while maintaining my convictions in Christ. My goal is to continue to create a clean comedy brand that the whole family can enjoy.
