It was well received and caught the attention of Francene Selkirk-Ackerman from Shooting from the Hip Casting Agency. After seeing him perform, Francene called Josh's mother to say "her son was very talented" and she believed "if he stayed focused and worked hard, he would find his place alongside Chris Tucker, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith."
