Josh Blue

I love this comedian! If you haven't seen him before, you can check out some of his work on YouTube, or his latest show, "Sticky Change" is on Netflix streaming. Tickets are $25 and well worth it. There are also shows on Friday and Saturday at 10 pm, but I have to be up early Sunday so I'm going to the 7:30 show. Doors open at 6:30; come early to get a good seat and enjoy dinner before the show.

Here's more from the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse site:
"Perhaps best known as the comedian who puts the cerebral in Cerebral Palsy, Josh Blue exploded onto the national comedy scene by capturing the attention and endearment of the country as the winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Having already established himself as one of the most sought after comedians on the college circuit, his weekly appearances on Last Comic in the summer of 2006 expanded his fan base exponentially. Most recently, Josh debuted a new special, Comedy Central Presents: Josh Blue, which received rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

Possessed with an undeniable likeability and comedic timing that belies his youthfulness; Josh continues to break down stereotypes of people with disabilities one laugh at a time. His stand-up routine is in a constant state of evolution and his off-the-cuff improvisational skills guarantee that no two shows are exactly alike.

Josh has appeared as a regular guest star on Comedy Central’s Mind of Mencia and his story has been featured on Fox, CBS, ABC, and MSNBC. He was the first comedian to perform stand-up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, was named Best Winning Reality Show Guest for his appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly, and made a standout guest appearance on Comics Unleashed. He became the first comic to debut a stand-up special on the big screen when 7 More Days in the Tank was shown in theatres across the country. Portions of the performance also aired on Bravo Network as a half-hour comedy special. Josh is a repeat guest on such nationally syndicated radio programs as NPR’s Talk of the Nation and The Mancow Show and has been featured in numerous print publications including People Magazine and The New York Times. Josh has also performed at the prestigious HBO-Aspen Comedy Festival, Comedy Central’s South Beach Comedy Festival, and The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. Josh has even become quite an Internet sensation with his top two YouTube videos approaching 2 million plays.

Despite his extensive schedule of stand-up tour dates, Josh maintains an active role on the US Paralympic Soccer Team and competed in Athens at the Paralympic Games, the world’s second largest sporting event.

Josh resides in Denver with his wife, Yuko, their son, Simon, and daughter, Seika. "
