Josh Blue

FORT LAUDERDALE – The Mary N. Porter Riverview Ballroom at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts will turn into a comedy club when Josh Blue performs on Thursday, November 9 at 8 p.m.

The winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Blue centers much of his self-deprecating act around living with cerebral palsy. Possessed with an undeniable likeability and comedic timing, he 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.

Comedy Central Presents: Josh Blue was named the 11th best special on the network in 2011 and, most recently, Blue 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 first comedian to perform stand-up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Blue’s numerous TV appearances include Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops on CMT, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Comedy Central’s Mind of Mencia. He has even become quite an Internet sensation with his top two YouTube videos over 3.5 million plays.

Blue was also a member of the U.S. Paralympic Soccer Team and competed in Athens at the Paralympic Games.

Tickets are $26.50 with $50 VIP tickets which include premium reserved seating and a meet and greet with the artist.
