Originally hailing from New Jersey, Joey Massaro is a bi-coastal comedian who splits his time between L.A and New York. Massaro’s comedic roots were planted at the Stress Factory in New Jersey but took an unexpected twist when he attended the University of South Carolina. Like a scene out of “My Cousin Vinny” this Jersey kid would learn to thrive amongst the Southerners and quickly became a staple in the Columbia, SC comedy scene. It was there he became the campus winner of the 2015 comedy competition and was asked to open for “Silicon Valley” star TJ,Miller at the universities largest performance venue. More importantly he learned how to diversity his material so he could take on any room.
From rowdy Southern bars to refined corporate events in NYC, Massaro has tackled hundreds of gigs with the same enthusiasm he had when he first grabbed the mic. His material is expansive, surprisingly relatable and always memorable, but just don’t sit on the first row. Massaro has become notorious for light heartedly roasting the crowd and improvising expansive bits based off of audience members.
If you are looking for guaranteed laughs then call up Jerry Seinfeld, but if you want a cheaper yet hilarious alternative book Joey Massaro.
