Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Joshua graduated with a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre from Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA. Soon after he became the Executive Assistant for Cabaret Pittsburgh, through which he had the pleasure of meeting and working with musical theatre geniuses such as Elaine Stritch, Stephen Schwartz, Tom Wopat, Craig Carnelia, Liz & Ann Hampton Callaway, and more! Also while in Pittsburgh, Joshua taught musical theatre and Shakespeare classes to children between the ages of 5 and 17 both at his alma mater (Point Park) and with Hope Academy.
Desjardins is currently living in New York City where he’s recording music since 2011. His most popular single, “I’m a Nerd,” is a huge success on iTunes, and the music video on YouTube is up to 99,000 views and counting! He also takes pride in his original one-man show, “Nerds Among Us,” and two-man show, “Joshing Around,” which also stars Joshua Warr. Between both cabarets, he has performed at the famous Laurie Beechman Theatre, The Duplex, and Don’t Tell Mama.
For side work, Joshua has a passion for technology as he loves editing reels together for
fellow performers, and more recently has added web development for actors to his “special skills.” Please see the Services page of this website for more information
