Joe Fernandez at The Laughing Tap

The hilarious Joe Fernandez (Marquette alum!) returns to Milwaukee for a weekend at The Laughing Tap!! Joe is a regular at many Chicago comedy institutions, including Zanies, Laugh Factory, Comedians You Should Know, and Paper Machete. He’s opened for some of the biggest names in comedy like Dave Attell, Jon Lovitz, Natasha Leggero and Harland Williams.

Joe Fernandez is a half-Cuban half-Irish (or Cubish) comedian and actor. Growing up in Texas he had an affinity for the sport of baseball and dreamed of one day playing for the Houston Astros (Sans using cameras to help his career.) When his body didn’t grow up with his dreams, he moved to the performing arts where muscles aren’t necessary. At Marquette University, Joe received the Chris Farley Scholarship for his positive use of creativity and humor. After moving to Chicago, Joe rapidly became one of the most beloved comics in the scene, peppering his stand-up pursuits with stints on improv teams at world-renowned iO and the Playground Theaters. Over the past 10 years, Joe has morphed smart and stupid into his own unique brand of silly-- but layered--comedy. He’s taken his off-stage persona of intolerable presence and morphed it into his on-stage persona of lovable jerk. He satirizes serious subjects through absurdity and is facetious to a fault. He has performed at numerous comedy festivals including TBS Just For Laughs, the Boston Comedy Festival, the Memphis Comedy Festival, Chicago Sketchfest, and was a finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award. Joe is a regular at many Chicago comedy institutions, including Zanies, Laugh Factory, Comedians You Should Know, and Paper Machete. He’s opened for some of the biggest names in comedy like Dave Attell, Jon Lovitz, Natasha Leggero and Harland Williams. Has he also appeared in a Cracker Barrel commercial and an episode of Chicago Med where he improvised yelling at Oliver Platt? Yes he has. If you're not in the same town Joe is performing in, you can catch him on his improvised character podcast "30 Characters." Also keep an eye out for his debut comedy album "I'm Ugly" which will be coming out this summer.
