April 13, 2016
Hosted by Karen Leavitt
Karen Leavitt welcomes Josh Blue, comedian who won Last Comic Standing in 2006. Josh will talk about his childhood growing up in Cameroon, South Africa, and Minnesota. He openly talks about life with Cerebral Palsy and how he discovered his ability to make people laugh at open mic night in college. He knew this was his passion and gift and as he can, with his brand of self-deprecating humor, deliver a one of a kind performance. We will discuss who his role models in life are, what keeps him inspired, and how winning The Last Comic Standing changed his life regarding both the enormous success and the role of fear.
