Perhaps best known as the comedian who puts the cerebral in Cerebral Palsy, Josh Blue centers much of his self-deprecating act around his disability. He 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.  Josh starred in Comedy Central Presents: Josh Blue, which received rave reviews from fans and critics alike and was named the 11th best special on the network in 2011.  Most recently, Josh debuted a one-hour Showtime special, Sticky Change, where he cracks jokes and tells stories about everything from being a white African-American, to dealing with cabbies who think he’ll pay in sticky change.  The special is currently available on Netflix.  He has appeared twice on Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops on CMT and recently made his late night television debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

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.  Blue is set to appear in the sports based comedy 108 Stitches.  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 over 3.5 million plays.

 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 was also a member of the US Paralympic Soccer Team and competed in Athens at the Paralympic Games, the world’s second largest sporting event.

Greg Morton had only two choices in schoolyard conflicts. Learn the ways of the force, or use his wit to diffuse situations. That wit would soon lead to winning first prize in the, ‘So You Think You’re Funny Contest’ and the beginning of his stand-up comedy career. He was no longer the shy introverted kid, drawing cartoons in the corner. He had finally found his voice. A voice he would later use to direct and voice over twenty Saturday Morning cartoons. This former mobile disc jockey, who used to play songs at weddings, now sings song parodies on nationally syndicated radio shows, like the Bob and Tom Show. Take his Obama Man, sung to the tune of Candy Man, which has racked up over 4 million hits on YouTube. Since the debut of his two minute Star Wars mash-up on Just for Laughs and Comedy Central, he has gone on to entertain audiences worldwide opening for Celine Dion and Luther Vandross at Radio City Music Hall. A noble choice of career young Padawan. Trading light sabers for laughs. This way, no one loses an arm.
