He’s kind of a funny-looking guy, but that doesn’t mean you’d guess from looking at him that he’s a former winner of Last Comic Standing. You certainly wouldn’t guess that he’s also a world-class athlete—especially once you notice that he has cerebral palsy.

But that’s the kind of multi-threat entertainer you get in Josh Blue, who not only has turned his LCS victory into a thriving stand-up career but also moonlights as a member of the U.S. Paralympic Soccer Team. And, despite a résumé that should make most of us feel inadequate, he still opts to make most of his jokes at his own expense, like lamenting a soccer injury (“The coach had the nerve to put me on the disabled list … Isn’t that sort of the whole point?”). Get ready to laugh—especially after he tells the audience, “This is the part where I warn you you’re going to hell for laughing at me.”
