New York City-based comedian Joe Zimmerman has had an eventful couple of years. In addition to making his Comedy Central debut on John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, Joe was one of the prestigious comedians selected to film a Comedy Central Half Hour stand-up special in 2014. He made his late night debut on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and has performed on Nickelodeon’s NickMom Night Out, as well as appeared on the nationally syndicated The Bob & Tom Show. Joe was even chosen as one of the acclaimed New Faces at Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Joe's debut album, titled Smiling at Wolves, reached #2 on the iTunes Comedy charts when released.
Praised for an accessible style pairing absurdism with a fun-loving demeanor, Joe has been personally selected by Ricky Gervais as a Conancontest finalist and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM and Pandora. He is an original member of the Beards of Comedy, the most requested tour in the Southeast from 2008-2012. The Beards released two albums and their Beards Across America MSN web series amassed more than a million views.
Joe is currently touring his new hour. Joe’s new podcast, called A Great Listening Experience, details his questionable attempts to attain infinite knowledge and power.
