About PJ Walsh:
PJ Walsh is known as one of the hardest working comedians behind the microphone, and for a 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 over 20 overseas tours for U.S. troops in several countries, including Iraq & Afghanistan. PJ’s years touring with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour’s stars found him performing on celebrated stages, including Radio City Music Hall, Universal Amphitheater, and the Ryman Auditorium. A successful show on Sirius Satellite radio and 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 finishing school, he set his focus on his vision of a solo show recounting his true-life journey. “OVER THERE: Comedy Is His Best Weapon” has been called “Fantastic, heartfelt, hilarious” by Nytheatre.com, chosen “Best” of both the Hollywood Fringe Festival and the San Francisco Fringe Festival.
A veteran of the U.S. Navy, PJ partnered with H. G. Fairfield Arts Center for the Environment Inc. A non-profit organization established by Marine & Korean War veteran Katherine Fairfield Freston, for “Courage Continues At Home – 30 Shows In 30 Days” and performed 30 one-hour, stand-up comedy shows throughout the Hudson Valley, New York region. An initiative focused 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 is committed to raising funds and awareness.
