Your show is wonderful and you are a very talented lad – a triple threat, as they’d say in Hollywood! Most importantly, the mix of message and appeal are ‘very Skirball’ and you’re doing what we try to do with our programs; namely, to provide families with something wondrous, inspiring, and so fun it makes them happy, but that also encourages them to think about how they can contribute to doing good in the world. Thanks for being such a gem to work with.

You have a really special show there. My kids have seen all of our Family Series programming and your show was our favorite by far.

Audience Quotes:

Saw your show today (at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta)…my daughters, ages 9 and 14, and I were in town for a quick spring break getaway. Being an arts oriented family, we were seeking an arts experience that would stimulate both ages – and mom too! We took a chance on The Joshua Show and we were unexpectedly blown away! Your show gave us giggles and deeper ponderings. I believe you really spoke to my 14 yr old who is a little unsure of her own ‘authenticity’…so, THANK YOU and keepThe Joshua Show going!
Wow – I really needed that today.You are better than a bottle of prozac…My daughter Bianca and I are going through some hard times now. Your show is kind, hilarious, life-affirming and like the best hug one could hope for. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my shriveled heart. Bianca said, ‘mummy, Joshua’s a nice boy.’ And you are.

Watching his show is like a giant group hug – it’s magical.

Joshua is the human embodiment of sunshine
