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.
Possessed with an undeniable likeability and comedic timing that belies his youthfulness; Blue 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 also become a hit on the internet with his top two YouTube videos receiving well over 1 million plays.
Blue 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 theaters across the country. Portions of the performance also aired on Bravo Network as a half-hour comedy special. Josh has also performed at the prestigious HBO-Aspen Comedy Festival and Comedy Central’s South Beach Comedy Festival.
Despite his extensive schedule of stand-up tour dates, he 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.
Blue resides in Denver with his wife and their two children.
