Get Ready to Laugh! PJ Walsh is Coming to Bearsville Theater
Get ready to laugh! The Bearsville Theater presents a night of comedy with PJ Walsh on December 28th, 2011. Walsh 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.

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”. Walsh performed 30 one-hour, stand-up comedy shows throughout the Hudson Valley, New York region in October 2011.
