Making fun of the disabled is an easy way to get yourself punched in the face. Not for stand-up comedian Josh Blue, though. The funny man — who himself has Cerebral Palsy — tackles the sensitive subject with ease. From teasing himself about his disorder to criticizing the ignorant scumbags who ridicule folks with disabilities, Blue brings new perspective to the word tolerance. A former soccer player for the U.S. Paralympic team, he creates pricey sculptures and paintings when he's not performing. Having made his claim to fame on NBC’s Last Comic Standing (like so many other comics nowadays), Blue ranked No. 11 on Comedy Central’s Stand-up Comedy Showdown in 2011. How’s that for a handicap? In your face!
