Joe went to Marquette University where he received the Chris Farley Scholarship for his creativity and positive use of humor.
After moving to Chicago, Joe rapidly became one of the most beloved comics in the scene, peppering his stand-up pursuits with stints on improv teams at world-renowned iO and the Playground Theaters.
Described as cerebral, sardonic, and flat out bizarre, Joe combines low brow, off-color humor with high brow references to satirize serious subjects. Joe has morphed smart and stupid into his own unique brand of silly-- but layered--comedy. He’s taken his off-stage persona of intolerable presence and morphed it into his on-stage persona of lovable jerk and is facetious to a fault.
Joe has performed in numerous comedy festivals such as Chicago TBS Just For Laughs Fest, the Boston Comedy Fest, the Memphis Comedy fest, Chicago Sketchfest and he was a finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award.
