Military Intelligence

Comedian PJ Walsh has beaucoup life experience on which to draw, starting with his Irish-American upbringing and followed by his enlistment in the U.S. Navy at 18 years old in 1990, when he figured there was no chance of war anywhere on the horizon. (Oops.) Upon his safe return from the Middle East, Walsh became President Clinton's dental technician and began his committed relationship with humor.

He's returned to battle zones as a performer with Comics on Duty, hit U.S. stages as part of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, appeared on Star Search, and wowed audiences at the New York, San Francisco, and Hollywood Fringe festivals with his good-natured and physically demanding standup. Two years of intense acting study led Walsh to develop a solo show called Over There: Comedy is His Best Weapon.
