Hello! My name is Josh Silverman. I’m a professional actor and writer living in beautiful Astoria, NY. I’ve performed on Hulu’s Difficult People and IFC’s The Onion News Network. I’ve worked with dozens of theater companies, including La MaMa E.T.C., Pig Iron Theatre Company, and the Walnut Street Theatre, and I’ve appeared in many commercials and films, including the award-winnning short Actor Seeks Role.
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, ran my own theater company for a year, and performed in the Philly Fringe on multiple occasions.
I moved to New York in 2005 (just in time for the subway strike), and I’ve spent the last dozen years working in theatre, film, TV, commercials, and sketch comedy. I’m a company member of Gorilla Repertory Theatre and Project:Theater’s site-specific sketch show Our Bar. I shook hands with Vaclav Havel when I performed in UTC61’s Havel Festival. I played Bottom in Midsummer on a playground in Washington Square. I shot a They Might Be Giants music video. I also write and perform in the Funny or Die webseries Bad Auditions (which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like).
I’m a proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA.
I’m represented by JC William Agency, Inc. and Susan Campochiaro Confrey at CBU Management, Inc.
