Joe Larson

Joe is a comedian, husband and father – the former makes the latter well….interesting.

When Joe met his now wife she loved how much he made her laugh. He warned her that while she finds it cute now, she may feel differently when he is unable to do anything but joke during the heat of an argument. As his wife eventually found out “you’re funny all the time!” can quickly turn into “Does everything have to be a joke?”

Grow as a Comedian

Perhaps it’s not his fault, Joe is after all a second generation comedian. Much to his parent’s dismay at the age of twenty, Joe went into the family business. Straight away he was chosen College Comedian of the Year at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and shortly after he made the move to New York City where he could be on stage every night.

Aside from the outrageous rent, rodents and 4AM wake up calls for his day job as a personal trainer, NYC proved to be exactly what Joe needed to grow as a comedian. Paying his dues at any club that would give him the mic, in just a short time he was working at some of the best rooms in the city including the famed Caroline’s On Broadway and Gotham Comedy Club. He was nominated “Best Up-And-Coming Comedian” at the NYC MAC Awards, was a finalist in both the prestigious Johnny Carson Great American Comedy Festival and Boston Comedy Festival and was part of the feature film Stand Up 360.

Just as comedy was taking off big time, Joe became a father. Unbeknownst to him this would not only take up every free second of his life but perhaps the biggest catalyst for his success. Becoming a dad gave Joe a new level of comfort in his role on stage and screen. Unconventional as always, Joe didn’t take on the traditional role of dad but rather he says he is simply a “man with a baby”.

He has made a cocktail with pureed babyfood and bourbon, he has changed a diaper in the green room before a set and he is currently lending his Man With A Baby voice as writer and actor on the hit show Babies Behaving Badly on Discovery Family.

Joe has also been seen on Gotham Comedy Live, NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Laughs on FOX, the Tonight Show’s Laugh Squad and the Speed Channel. On radio he is a repeat guest on Bob and Tom and the Bennington Show.

A lover of all things comedy, Joe is currently pursuing acting and writing roles for television as well enjoying every laugh he can give you while he’s on stage in NYC and throughout the US.

Joe lives in Brooklyn, NY with his two daughters and wife – as you’re reading this he is likely annoying her with a joke instead of apologizing for not taking the garbage out.
