“Last Comic Standing” brings laughs to BU

Josh Blue For immediate release: Sept. 19, 2011

BLOOMSBURG — Bloomsburg University kicks of this year’s Celebrity Artist Series with a performance by comedian Josh Blue on Oct. 29, at 8 p.m in Mitrani Hall at the Haas Center for the Arts.

This event is open to the public with a general admission of $29.50 for adults and $16.50 for children. Blue’s show does contain strong language, so this performance may not be appropriate for all viewers.

Blue won NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2006 and has appeared on countless TV and radio shows, including programs on ABC, CBS, Comedy Central, Fox, and MSNBC.

Known as the comedian “who put the cerebral in cerebral palsy,” he uses humor to break down stereotypes and challenge notions about people with disabilities. His likable personality and powerful stage presence, paired with a knack for comedic timing, ensure that no two of hisshows are the same.
