“One of the cleverest young comedians in New York” Elise Czajkowski, New York Times

“Josh Rabinowitz is an amazing storyteller…He proceeded to tell the most awkward, riveting and hilarious tales about what happens when you come out of your shell and attempt to help 78-year-old meth addicts who keep their family members in cellars.” – Anthony Damiano, Exclaim

“He was hilarious from start to finish and one thing to make note of is that Josh has mastered the art of comedic timing. The crowd didn’t know what twist or turn he would take with his jokes and that made him even funnier. It is no surprise why he was on Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch,” because he is such a talented performer.” Vinesh Vora, The Source

“One of last year’s New Faces, Josh Rabinowitz, had a great set about being awkward and how cool people are “gentrifying” the definition of the word.” Sharilyn Johnson, Third Beat

“Josh Rabinowitz….. complete with a great piece about an orientation meeting gone horribly awry – and the pitfalls of being a small man with boyish features…. Lucky for him, he’s got a wicked sense of humor to make up for whatever real or imagined sexual shortfalls he has.” Dylan P. Gadino, Laugh Spin
