Cerebral Ballsy

It takes some major cojones to embrace the parts of yourself that you can’t change. (Who do you think you’re kidding by putting a band aid over that hairy mole? The jig is up.) It takes a pair the size of Saturn’s moons to make roomfuls of people laugh at your uniqueness. But, ya’ know, that’s just how comedian Josh Blue rolls.

You might remember Blue from his climb to celebrity during Last Comic Standing; he’s hard to forget. See, Blue has cerebral palsy, and rather than downplaying it, he places the disorder center stage as the cornerstone of his shtick. He claims that he doesn’t give autographs because each “would take 45 minutes” to complete, so after tonight’s show at Palm Beach Improv (550 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach) maybe you could just settle for a congratulatory slap on the back. Tickets cost $23.43. Call 561-833-1812, or visit www.palmbeachimprov.com.
