Meeting Joe

On January 19th 2020, I had the pleasure of meeting Joe at the Arcada Theater in the Chicagoland area.

I sat down and interviewed Joe before his show but unfortunately, all the footage was lost 😭

I quickly learned that Joe is a very nice and friendly guy. At first, we discussed our similar passion of bringing joy to people interested in Italian culture and heritage. I found out that we had similarities such as we are both Calabrese, have a mission, and enjoy comedy. Also differences from Australia and America (and the brutally cold Chicago weather). 

Next, I asked, “Do you need to rehearse before you go on stage?” He told me he didn’t need to warm up or practice and he was ready to go.  I found it remarkable how at ease and comfortable he was before performing to a full crowd he hasn’t visited in over 20 years. After we finished speaking, he got up in stage and had everybody in tears from laughter. 

After the show, we exchanged t-shirts and DVDs and parted ways. Since I am only 25 and looking to grow my part in this community as well, I find that Joe is definitely someone I can look up to, as he is a clear talented professional who has earned his spot through hard work!

  1. I don’t foolow Joe, but after watching his clips I think I will. That being said, I’ve never seen him perform either. I too am Calabrese, which makes everything about hi more intriguing. 😉 Fromthe clips I’ve seen I liked Nononos hot peppers. So funny.
