Ever since he was a little boy, Josh Robert Thompson has been talking to himself.
Raised in a sleepy suburb of Cleveland, Josh dreamed of someday being on TV—spending weeknights watching Johnny Carson, and weekends building cardboard talkshow sets in his basement.
But Josh’s path to TV was through the radio. A series of prank phone calls to national news outlets caught the attention of “The Howard Stern Show,” where Josh quickly established himself as the voice of “Fake” Arnold Schwarzenegger.
But it was his role as robot skeleton sidekick, Geoff Peterson, on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” that would prove to be Josh’s big TV break, endearing himself to viewers for nearly a decade on CBS.
Josh’s wide range of celebrity impressions have been featured for over nine seasons on FOX’s “Family Guy” —from Morgan Freeman to Donald Trump and everything in between.
His multitude of voices are also featured in “American Dad,” “The Angry Birds Movie,” “Robot Chicken,” “ and on Netflix originals “Skylanders Academy” and “Motown Magic.”
As a stand-up, Josh has toured all over the U.S. and Canada, playing in such legendary venues as The Chicago Theater and Radio City Music Hall.
On film, he stars in the romantic comedy “Nowhere Girl,’ the indie supernatural thriller “Revelator,” and the award-winning comedic series “F#cking 40.”
