Hello! My name is Josh Silverman. I’m a professional actor and writer living in beautiful Astoria, NY. I’ve worked with dozens of theater companies, including LaMaMa E.T.C., Pig Iron Theatre Company, and the Walnut Street Theatre, among many, many others. I’ve also booked and shot a number of commercials and films, including Actor Seeks Role, Working It Out, and Flogging Margaret.
After growing up in the Philly suburbs, I got my BA in Theater at Temple University and spent several years immersed in the dynamic Philadelphia theater scene. I performed with Pig Iron Theatre Company and understudied at the Walnut, ran my own theater company for a year, and performed in the Philly Fringe on multiple occasions.
I moved to New York in 2005 (in the middle of a subway strike) and immediately threw myself into the New York theatre scene. I’ve spent the last decade working in theatre, film, commercials, and comedy. I’ve performed with La MaMa E.T.C. and Untitled Theatre Company #61. I shook hands with Vaclav Havel when I performed in one of his plays with UTC61. I was in a They Might Be Giants music video. I’m a company member of Gorilla Repertory Theatre and Project:Theatre’s site-specific sketch sketch show Our Bar. I also write and perform in the Funny or Die sketch comedy webseries Bad Auditions, which is exactly what it sounds like.
I’m a proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA.
I’m represented by JC William Agency and Susan Campochiaro Confrey at CBU Management.
