(AUDIO) Josh Barnes is Holding Up

Granted the last two years have arguably been the least funny of any of our lives, but the comedy nerds at Eureka’s Savage Henry Comedy Club managed to keep their venue open through much of the pandemic, offering up a space to gather for those brave enough to seek out the levity they were peddling.

After his stint in the U.S. Air Force came to an end nearly seven years ago, Josh Barnes moved from Southern California up to Humboldt County where he has spent many a night honing his comic craft on Savage Henry’s welcoming stage. On today’s episode of Humboldt Holding up, Josh talks about his comedy beginnings, what it was like during COVID times to try to hold together the scene he and his fellow yuk-slingers hold so dear, and his plans for future laugh extractions.
