piffle! is a live radio show hosted by brothers Josh & Noah Telson that brings together comedians, actors, musicians and other funny people for a wild and bizarre hour of improvised facts, sketch comedy, music and conversation.


Josh Telson (writer/producer/host)

joshBorn in Germany but raised in New York, Josh got his start in comedy at eleven years old when he said that he wanted to be a firetruck when he grew up. It was a very funny joke and earned him the praise and adulation of all of his classmates. Unfortunately, his career in comedy got sidetracked by middle school, high school, four years of college and ten years working in the film industry, none of which are as funny as they should be.

Josh is now a comedian and filmmaker based in Berlin, Germany, where he lives with his wife, daughter, and a cat named “Potato Salad.” He performs regularly across the city and in his shower. He is not a firetruck.
