Josh Blue has been a fast-rising star since first appearing on Comedy Central's "Mind of Mencia" before gaining the attention and endearment of the country as the winner of NBC's "Last Comic Standing." Josh is a diverse and triumphant individual - hilarious stand-up comedian, stand-out guest star on television, talented artist, and stellar U.S. Paralympic Soccer player refusing to bow to any of the challenges that come from living with Cerebral Palsy. Blue jokes, "I realize that people are going to stare so I want to give them something to stare at." Josh uses his incredible sense of humor and versatile persona to defy stereotypes and encourage others to overcome their preconceived notions about people who are considered "disabled." His unique brand of "reverse teasing" affords him the great joy of "humbling condescending people." In 2005, Josh emerged as a major force on the college circuit, garnering rave reviews for his main-stage showcases that helped earn him a nomination for BEST DIVERSITY EVENT OF 2006 by APCA. A Lewis & Clark College programmer remarked, "Not only did Josh Blue receive a standing ovation, but he was the funniest comedian of the entire three day convention."
