Josh Thomas On Why Hollywood Is A Recipe For Misery

You might think Hollywood celebrities are happier than the rest of us, but are they really? Josh Thomas doesn’t think so.

Josh is a wildly funny and successful comedian, known for creating one of Australia’s best comedy dramas Please Like Me, which he wrote based on his own life.

In this chat, he talks about success, creativity, being diagnosed with autism and ADHD as an adult, and what living in Hollywood has taught him about happiness.
