As an improv actor: He's had the privilege of appearing with Robin Williams at the Comic Strip in NYC, and studied with Chicago's famed 'Second City' improvisational theater director and improv guru, Del Close.
Joey is an accomplished humor educator: He’s provided humor programs for major Fortune 500 corporations including AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, MetLife and Merrill Lynch. Joey has been a keynote presenter on humor for the National League of Cities, National Association of County Organizations, and many state leagues of municipalities.
