Comedian Josh Blue Coming to SWOSU
February 22, 2008
Comedian Josh Blue, who won NBC’s Last Comic Standing, will perform at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford on Tuesday, March 11, as part of the university’s Panorama series, which brings outstanding speakers and entertainers to SWOSU.
Prior to his Last Comic win, Blue appeared as a guest star on Comedy Central’s Mind of Mencia. He became the first comedian to perform stand-up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and was named Best Winning Reality Show Guest for his appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly. His “7 More Days in the Tank” DVD has been a popular item among his fans.
Despite his hectic touring schedule, Blue maintains an active role on the U.S. Paralympic Soccer Team.
“Not only is Josh Blue America’s funniest comedian, he’s breaking down barriers for people with disabilities,” said Stephen Bennett, president and CEO of United Cerebral Palsy. “He has shown millions of Americans that people with disabilities can live without limits.
Blue will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center on the SWOSU campus. Advance tickets for the event are $10 for SWOSU students and $20 for non-SWOSU students. All tickets at the door will be $25.
Tickets are available at the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, Room 205 of the Administration Building; SWOSU Business Office, Room 109 of the Administration Building; Business Office on the SWOSU-Sayre campus; and at the Weatherford Daily News. Tickets can also be purchased with a credit card by calling (580) 774-3019.
Panorama is partially supported by an endowed lectureship sponsored by SBC.
