Joe Machi became the first comedian ever to perform on the Tonight Show while cradling a glass of water under one arm.
After walking out on stage and saying “I shoulda left that backstage” Joe dove into a phenomenal set talking about his response to some recent doctors advice, being mistaken for the wrong gender, and his favorite part of going to Disney World.
Machi kills on stage at the Comedy Cellar and all over the country. We’ve loved him since we first saw him back in the Summer of Joe somewhere around 2014. He’s one of the most original voices in comedy, once nicknamed the Handsome Vault for his ability to keep a secret.
You know him from the final four on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2014, his half-hour special for Comedy Central in 2016, appearances on “Conan” and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”, frequent guest spots on SiriusXM’s Bennington Show with his comedy best pal Sam Morill, and regularly on “This Week at the Comedy Cellar.” You can also hear him on the awesome podcast Keeping Joe.
