Joe Matarese grew up in Cherry Hill, NJ and now resides with his wife and 2 kids just minutes outside of NYC in the burbs.
His completely autobiographical act pokes fun at his subtly dysfunctional Italian family, his own neuroses and use of the SS RI Celexa and the ADD med Adder all improving him in so many ways, life with 2 young kids, and his marriage to a psychologist (his perfect match). Joe’s talent for turning real life struggles into comedic gems has landed him appearances on the most sought after TV and radio shows including The Late Show with David Letterman, America’s Got Talent (where he received a standing ovation from all 4 celebrity judges and the 2000 person crowd), Chelsea Lately, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central Presents (his very own 1/2 hour special), The Howard Stern Show, and his brand new 1 hour special “Medicated”. You may also recognize him from Bravo’s reality series Better Half where he taught his wife to perform standup and she brought home the $20,000 prize.
