About Joe DeRosa
Joe DeRosa started performing 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. Soon thereafter, Joe made the jump to New York City to take up comedy as a full time gig. He quickly began working at New York venues such as Caroline’s, Stand-up New York, the Comic Strip, and Gotham Comedy Club. He 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 to national tours such as Dave Chappelle’s “Block Party Tour,” the “Insomniac Tour with Dave Attell,” and “Comedy Central on Campus.” Joe continues to perform constantly, making television appearances and headlining clubs and colleges both in and out of the country. Most recently, he co-starred in a network pilot presentation for Comedy Central entitled “The Watch List,” made a guest appearance on the IFC series “Z-Rock,” and was one of twelve comedians selected to perform on HBO’s brand new stand-up comedy show “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton.” Joe also taped a half-hour “Comedy Central Presents” special, which aired in the fall/winter of 2008.
