Joe Pera is twenty-four years old and from Buffalo and has been doing standup in New York since 2009. Though he misses his family a great deal, Jet Blue’s $59 tickets from JFK to the Buffalo-Niagara airport make returning home for the weekend feasible in both expense and time. Here’s a video of the last time he performed at Caroline’s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0Dt_C_Ir40
Joe has performed his low-key Buffalo Bills and Declaration of Independence jokes in a variety of venues including clubs, theaters, subway platforms, and art galleries that are more of someone’s house than an art gallery, as well as at his own weekly show ‘The Dan + Joe + Charles’ Show’ (every Tuesday at 8pm at the Creek and Cave).
Graduating from Ithaca College with a film degree, Joe has continued to make short films, many of which can be seen on his website - joepera.com
