Experience an awkward evening with Josh Sundquist, featuring a live performance of the hilarious storytelling and comedy that has earned him over 200 million views online


Bestselling author, comic, and Paralympian Josh Sundquist tracked down all the girls he'd ever tried to date to ask why they rejected him. He shares the results of his semiscientific investigation (and yes, unfortunately it's a true story) in this one-of-a-kind live performance that blends interactive storytelling with standup comedy. From a disastrous mini-golf date involving a backward prosthetic foot to a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, it’s a story about looking for love—or at least a girlfriend—in all the wrong places.

I brought five of my best girlfriends to the show. We laughed for ninety-minutes straight! Most fun we’ve had together in years!

Couldn’t recommend a show more. Very seldom have I seen a stand-up style comedy production go so deep into the struggles of being human but doing so in such an honest and playful way.
— Trevor Edmunds
I’ve seen this show three times and it gets better and better. Tell your friends and family....I did!
— Patty Wong
