Josh Blue is not only well known as one of the most sought after comedians on the college circuit, but most recently from his special, Comedy Central Presents: Josh Blue.

Josh has appeared as a regular guest star on Comedy Central's Mind of Mencia and his story has been featured on Fox, CBS, ABC, and MSNBC. He was the first comedian to perform stand-up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and he was named Best Winning Reality Show Guest for his appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly. Josh is a repeat guest on such nationally syndicated radio programs as NPR's Talk of the Nation and The Mancow Show and has been featured in numerous print publications including People Magazine and The New York Times. Josh has also performed at the HBO-Aspen Comedy Festival, Comedy Central's South Beach Comedy Festival, and The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas.
