Description

Joshua Walters is an internationally acclaimed comedian, poet, educator and performer whose work has appeared on ABC, MTV2, PBS and NPR. A theater performer for over a decade, Walters incorporates elements of spoken word and beatbox into his shows, in a mash-up of comedy, intimate reflection and unpredictable antics. In the last two years, Walters has performed at theaters and universities throughout North America, Europe and the Middle East.    

Madhouse Rhythm is the story of someone who has flipped “inflicted” into “gifted,” and coined “mental illness” into… “mental skillness.” Walters’ show uses humor to reframe madness as a positive.
