PJ Walsh (Performer) is known as one of the hardest working comedians behind the microphone, and for good reason. His boundless energy and the strength of his physical comedy have carried him around the globe, from the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, to overseas tours for U.S. troops in several countries including Iraq & Afghanistan. PJ's years touring with the stars of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour found him performing on celebrated stages including Radio City Music Hall, Universal Amphitheater and the Ryman Auditorium with legends such as Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White, and Jeff Foxworthy. A successful show on Sirius Satellite radio & a role in the Lionsgate feature film “Delta Farce” followed. With a vision in mind PJ stepped out of the stand up comedy spotlight to complete two years of intensive training at the prestigious William Esper School of Acting in New York City. Upon completion of school PJ set his focus on his vision of a solo show, “OVER THERE: Comedy is His Best Weapon,” recounting his true-life journey. “OVER THERE: Comedy Is His Best Weapon” has been called “Fantastic, heartfelt, hilarious” by Nytheatre.com and chosen “Best” of both the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival and the 2011 San Francisco Fringe Festival.
PJ received a “Unanimous Producers” Choice Nomination for the Mega Star Award at the upcoming 2011 LA Comedy Awards. A veteran of the U.S. Navy, PJ partnered with H. G. Fairfield Arts Center for the Environment Inc. a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization established by Marine & Korean War veteran Katherine Fairfield Freston for “Courage Continues At Home - 30 Shows In 30 Days”. Performing 30 one-hour, stand-up comedy shows throughout the Hudson Valley, New York region in October 2011. An initiative that focuses on “service reciprocated”, and raising funds for food, clothing, shelter, and medical attention for local veterans and their families. When not headlining comedy venues across the country PJ splits his time between Los Angeles, CA and his home state of New York. In 2012 PJ will have the honor of gracing the cover of People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue. Joining a very distinct selection of sexy men who currently still live. Including Johnny Depp, Denzel Washington and George Clooney. Sorry Jon Hamm you’re a bridesmaid again.
