Clean, Corporate Comedian
Brian Regan called Joe, “One of my favorite comedians” and invited him to perform with him at The Kennedy Center, Red Rocks, Radio City Music Hall, and his Netflix Special at the Paramount.
John Oliver called him “Spectacular” after a set for Comedy Central; and Ricky Gervais invited him to perform with two separate times at Madison Square Garden. Jimmy Fallon invited him to do his debut on The Tonight Show in 2017.
Joe finds the absurdities and contradictions of everyday existence – the ones you almost don’t notice but instantly relate to, as well as touching on more creative topics from history, to pop-science, bird watching, time machines, Bigfoot, The Universe, monkey research, Doomsday preppers, and of course baby Hitler.
Joe Zimmerman grew up in Morgantown, West Virginia, and started his comedy career in North Carolina. While living in the South, his stand-up group the Beards of Comedy landed a record deal with Comedy Central Records.
He moved to New York City in 2012, quickly appearing on The Late Late Show and John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, as well as performing at Montreal’s prestigious Just for Laughs festival.

” Joe Zimmerman was the perfect comedian for my company holiday party. His material was so funny and work appropriate. My company had a really good time laughing and couldn’t stop talking about a couple of his jokes after the Zoom call ended. Joe is also very kind, he spent some time with my team to go over the details for the show and was super responsive with communication via email. I’m now a true fan of Joe!” -Envoy
