Just Josh-ing

Josh Blue

What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul. ~ Yiddish Proverb

Our families love to laugh — with each other and at each other. One of the things my husband and I will treat ourselves with is going to see a good comedian. We have had opportunities to see many gifted ones in action — Jerry Seinfeld, George Carlin, and Lewis Black, to name a few. For several years, we lived across the street from one of the local comedy clubs and frequented the shows on a regular basis. There we had the chance to see performers such as Kevin Pollack and Tom Wilson, along with a host of rising young comics out on the circuit honing their skills.

My husband and I first encountered Josh Blue when he was competing (and won) on Last Comic Standing. Truly funny and sarcastic, we both immediately gravitated both to his style and his topics. We also had the chance to see Josh Blue perform in person – several times. Each was a treat, and we could always count on laughing out loud in a much needed break from lives and routines. Some of his funniest sets revolve around his having cerebral palsy and his stories about his family. Several of his performances are on youtube, so if you are in the mood for a laugh, I recommend him — but he occasionally is not safe to watch at work!

Enjoy a break, take a moment to laugh.

Go Josh around…….
