OVER THERE: Comedy Is His Best Weapon illustrates the hardships and hilarity of PJ Walsh's Journey - from a screw-up kid convinced there's no chance of war who enlists in 1990, all the way to the White House. It's his career in stand up though, that causes him to face his mortality in the belly of a C-130 flying over Afghanistan. This poignant narrative interwines the solemnity of war with Walsh's keen eye to see comedy in the ebb and flow of every day events, while tackling larger issues such as war and growing up.
OVER THERE: Comedy Is His Best Weapon was chosen Best of the Fringe a both the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival and the 2011 San Francisco Fringe Festival.

OVER THERE offers a thought-provoking, side splitting journey through PJ Walsh's not so ordinary life... 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. I've alreay told my friends to go see this show and now I'm telling you."
