JOE ZIMMERMAN

“The combination of Joe’s calming vocalization and inventive writing is a thing of magic. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more enjoyable show.” ~Buzzfeed

“One of the best new comedians from the South”. ~Paste Magazine

“Closed the show and destroyed the crowd with an audience participation bit that caused howling fits.” ~Punchline Magazine

Joe Zimmerman brings insightful observations and a curiosity to the stage that achieves a level of joy rarely accomplished. Known for his inventive writing and playful persona, his jokes are first and foremost on himself, while also touching on pop culture, animals, nature, history and pop-science.

A regular at New York’s iconic Comedy Cellar, Joe grew up in Morgantown, WV, and began his comedy career in North Carolina after graduating from Davidson College. His television appearances include The Late Late Show with James Corden, John Oliver’s New York Comedy Central show, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Last Comic Standing, and his own Comedy Central Half Hour.

Joe’s first album Smiling at Wolves reached number one on the iTunes comedy charts and his second, Innocence came out with Comedy Central records and plays regularly on SiriusXM. His 2021 album Comedy To Fall Asleep To has been featured on both Pandora and SiriusXM.
