Josh Blue's Top Five

Winner of 'Last Comic Standing'



Josh Blue is one of America's favorite new faces, and for good reason. Aside from winning this past season's "Last Comic Standing," Blue -- who has cerebral palsy -- also is a member of the U.S. Paralympic soccer team. Georgians will have the chance to see him perform when he brings his inspiring and hilarious act to the Funny Farm from Thurs.-Sun., Nov. 2-5.

1) OutKast: "They're geniuses. They're just so original and out there, I really look up to their style."

2) The Big Lebowski: "It's such a funny movie. I'd have to say it's my favorite; that and Pulp Fiction -- I have a pension for the odd."

3) Senegal: "I lived there for a year when I was 15, and I fell in love with the culture, the people and the language."

4) Pho: "I'm a trash compactor; I'll eat whatever. But pho is this Vietnamese soup that I especially like; especially since I don't eat fast food anymore, except for Taco Bell when I'm drunk."

5) If I Die in a Combat Zone: Box Me Up and Ship Me Home -- Tim O'Brien: "I just finished reading it and it's a great book. I got into Tim O'Brien after I read The Things They Carried and wanted to read more of his work."
