“OVER THERE: Comedy Is His Best Weapon” illustrates the hardship and hilarity of PJ Walsh’s journey. As a screw-up kid, Walsh enlists never expecting to go to war. After Three wars, a stint as Bill Clinton’s dental technician, and a career in stand-up comedy alongside the stars of The Blue Collar Comedy Tour, Walsh discovers what really matters in life when he returns to war no longer as a service man, but a comedian, and finds himself facing mortality in the belly of a C-130 plane over Afghanistan.

“Just when you’re thinking you can laugh no more, he hits you in the stomach with raw emotion and you realize his comic agenda is not just about him but to help and support others as well.” NYTheatre.com

“I highly recommend this show. It’ll make you laugh, think, and leave with a glimpse to a side of stand-up you might not expect to see.” Theater is Easy

“If you’re looking for laughs in the humble form of true talent and motivation, then check out PJ Walsh. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll leave ready to conquer the world, or at least a small part of it.” Independent Media Magazine

Although PJ Walsh’s show is packed with his unique personal experiences, with such recognizable individuals as Mother Teresa, President Bill Clinton, and Comedian Larry The Cable Guy, more importantly he has crafted a performance that will leave the audience with the realization that the evening’s purpose is much bigger than just any one individual sharing his own story.
