April 6th 7th & 8th
Joe DeVito has the power to start fires using his mind, and he also does standup comedy. Whether taking on relationships, his Italian-American family, or current events, Joe's dead-on timing, unexpected twists and sheer flights of lunacy make him a favorite at clubs and colleges across the USA, and at the top venues in New York City. After spending a decade as a journalist and advertising writer, Joe gave into his coworker's demands to try performing so he could find fame, while they finally got some work done. In 2006, he was invited to the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Canada, where the Montreal Gazette rated his performance "9.5 out of 10."
Smart, silly and likeable, Joe performs at venues across the USA and is a regular at New York’s Gotham Comedy Club, Catch a Rising Star and the Borgata in Atlantic City. Some of his TV credits include CBS "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson"
E! Channel's "Chelsea Lately,” CNN Headline News "Not Just Another Cable News Show," BBC's "The World Stands Up," a semifinalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing," and a recurring guest comedian on FOX News Channel's "The Red Eye," as well as several times on “The Kennedy Show” as a panelist. Joe has also been seen on Animal Planet's "The A List" (recurring), Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham” and at the Montreal Comedy Festival where he ran away with the honors in the "New Faces" category. He was also a writer for Stuff Magazine, fUSE TV, and MTV as well as the Oscar nominated film “Super Size Me.”
"DeVito opened with a set that was as fast paced as it was funny. Extremely disobedient of the term 'politically correct,' he seems to have an endless pile of inappropriate one-liners in his head... yet deadpans all of this 100% with just the right amount of self-deprecation." -- Long Island Entertainment News
