After being named Charlotte’s 2006 Comedian of the Year by Creative Loafing Magazine, Joe Zimmerman began touring the country doing what he loves – that is, driving long distances while listening to self-help audiobooks.
Joe has quickly become known at the national level for his likable personality and clean material. In 2009 Rooftop Comedy nominated him for the Golden Shingle Award, which is given to the most outstanding rising stars in comedy. 2011 saw Joe make the move to New York City, advance to the semifinals of the Laughing Skull Festival, place in the San Francisco Comedy Competition, showcase as one of Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch and make his debut on The Bob & Tom Show. He writes a popular blog (found on his website, ZimmermanComedy.com), Tweets at @JoeZimmerman and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM and Pandora.
When Joe is not on the road as a solo act, he tours with the Beards of Comedy. One of the most highly requested stand-up tours in the country, the Beards have released two albums; their latest, Cardio Mix, in 2011 with Comedy Central Records.
