Start the New Year with a double dose of laughter as Stamford Center for the Arts presents comedian Josh Blue - who gained nationwide attention, acclaim and endearment as the favorite and eventual winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing 4 - and his special guest comic Andrew Orvedahl.
Josh Blue is a diverse and triumphant individual, an hilarious stand-up comedian, a stand-out guest star on television, a talented artist and a stellar U.S. Paralympic Soccer player - refusing to bow to any of the challenges that come from living with Cerebral Palsy. He 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." From comedy clubs and theater engagements to college campuses and corporate events, wherever he takes the stage Josh elicits a wildly appreciative crowd response. His uncanny ability to improvise with any audience coupled with comedic timing rarely found in a performer of his age has enabled him to rapidly develop a fan base across the country.
Special guest comic Andrew Orvedahl, considered intelligent, observational and acerbic, delivers sharp, insightful comedy with a dash of the abstract. In the three years he has been performing comedy, he has become a regular at the Comedy Works in Denver, performed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and was chosen to represent Colorado at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival.
