Comedian to perform at MVCC on Saturday as part of college’s Cultural Series

Posted

Comedian Josh Blue will perform as part of the Mohawk Valley Community College Cultural Series at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, in Schafer Theater, Wilcox Hall, at the college’s Utica Campus.

Tickets are $20 general, $15 for MVCC employees, and free for MVCC students, and are available for purchase at www.mvcc.edu/tickets.

Blue exploded onto the national comedy scene in 2006 when he captured the laughter and hearts of millions as the winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Since then, he has risen through the ranks to become a well-established headliner at venues throughout the world. This summer, he finished in third place on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” and now he’s back on the road with his “As NOT Seen on TV Tour.”

Critics have said Blue is not a cerebral palsy comic; he’s a comic who happens to have cerebral palsy. Blue typically performs more than 200 shows a year, spreading laughter and breaking down stereotypes of people with disabilities. His stand-up routine is in a constant state of evolution and his off-the-cuff improvisational skills guarantee that no two shows are alike.

Because of COVID-19, the schedule of events is subject to change. All events will comply with federal, state, and county guidelines, along with the MVCC Responsible Restart Plan (www.mvcc.edu/restart). If in-person events are not permitted or if capacity restrictions make events impracticable, virtual options or postponements will be listed at www.mvcc.edu and the Cultural Series Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MVCCCulturalSeries).

The Cultural Series is provided by MVCC’s Cultural Events Council, in collaboration with MVCC’s Program Board, with significant support from the Student Activity Fee. For the complete series lineup and ticket sales, visit www.mvcc.edu/culture.
