With a repertoire stretching from politicians to comedians and sports stars, Josh quickly became a hit live and online. He says he used to use his impressions to help deal with life’s little challenges, like using the voice of Daniel Radcliffe to get a date.

Josh's spoof diary Staggering Hubris, written in Rafe’s voice, purports to tell the real story of the chaos behind the scenes as the British government attempted to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. The book, with its account of parties and rule-breaking at Downing Street, began to look uncannily prescient as the Johnson government was engulfed by the Westminster lockdown parties controversy. Critic Peter Magee wrote in The Bookbag: 'What begins as a light-hearted spoof on life in Downing Street turns into something resembling a fly-on-the-wall documentary. There came a point when it almost ceased to be funny because it seems that it was all true...'.
