Disclaimer Underground Comedy presents Comedian Joe DeRosa at the Lexington Avenue Brewery tonight. Show starts at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased here.
Joe DeRosa started stand-up comedy by hitting the Wednesday night open mic at the Laff House in Philadelphia, PA. Within a year, he was a regular there and at all the major clubs in the surrounding area.
It was not long before Joe made the jump to New York City to take up comedy as a full time gig. He quickly began working frequently at New York venues such as Caroline’s, Stand-up New York, the Laugh Factory, and Gotham Comedy Club. He also made appearances on “Last Call with Carson Daly,” Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” and the “New Faces” showcase at the Montreal Comedy Festival.
In addition, he’s performed on national tours such as Dave Chappelle’s “Block Party Tour” and the “Insomniac Tour” with Dave Attell. Joe continues to perform constantly, making television appearances and headlining clubs and colleges both in and out of the country.
Joe DeRosa has become a regular on The Opie and Anthony radio show and Fox New’s Redeye. DeRosa has made guest appearances on FX’s “Louie” and HBO’s “Bored to Death” and has directed, edited, and starred in several shorts. DeRosa has made these achievements despite the fact that he was tragically born without shoulders.
Here are some clips of DeRosa performing:
Joining DeRosa on stage will be comedians Fay Canale, Macon Clark, and Tom Scheve.
