City Steam And The Brew HaHa Present: Joe Matarese - Seen on America's Got Talent, Chelsea Lately

with Paul Spratt and Dan Kalwhite

Joe’s completely autobiographical act pokes fun at his subtly dysfunctional Italian family, his own neuroses, life with a five year old, and a baby daughter, and his marriage to a psychologist (his perfect match). After 20 years of failed relationships, his main objective is fixing Joe – he has to if he wants this relationship to work. Joe’s talent for turning real life struggles into comedic gems quickly landed him appearances on the most sought after TV and radio shows including Chelsea Lately (semi regular), The Late Show with David Letterman (2 appearances), The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central Presents (his very own 1/2 hour special), Comedy.TV, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, Nick Mom’s Night Out, The Howard Stern Show and Breuer Unleashed on Sirius Satellite Radio, Howard On Demand, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn (4 appearances), and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. You may also recognize him from Bravo’s reality series Better Half where he teaches his wife to perform standup and she brings home the $20,000 prize. Joe has also hit the stage four times at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival, leading to two development deals with major television networks.
