I like to get up there and wing it. I have a set act but, I like to interact with the audience. That in a nutshell, sums up Joey Vegas approach to stand-up. Good-looking and easy going Joey Vega makes them laugh and makes them think.
Born in NYC, Joe received some of his acting training at the HB Studios. He has used that training in many feature films, most recently ROUNDERS, and ROW YOUR BOAT. He also worked on RYDER PI, AN EASTSIDE STORY, and PUNCHLINE with Tom Hanks.
The acting is great, but performing in front of a live audience is my first love. Joe has made them laugh from coast to coast and everywhere in between. Whether its a packed house at TRUMP CASTLE in Atlantic City, or in front of 20,000 people at the famed MADISON SQUARE GARDEN; Joe has so much fun on stage that you cant help but have a great time watching him.
Joe has combined his comedy with motivational speaking. He motivates people and makes them realize that anything is possible in America. No matter who you are: Latino, Black, White, Female, Gay, Disabled etc; you can go beyond all obstacles and become very successful in America.
Joe takes alot of pride in knowing that he can make a difference in the future of many people. People and students leave his shows not only laughing, but also feeling good about themselves andtheir future.
Joe has logged some impressive time on radio shows, trading laughs with Howard Stern and others. He has appeared on all the major Comedy shows, including Comedy on the Road, Carolines, Comic Strip Live, and many others. He also hosted his own TV show called The Latin Connection on FOX.
Whether its making people laugh in nightclubs or concert halls, JOE VEGA is motivating people all over the world. Youll be glad that he is on the job and loving it!
Joey Vega's Upcoming Shows
There are no Upcoming Shows listed for this comedian.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
