MORE ABOUT JOE:
Joe Fernandez is a half-Cuban half-Irish (or Cubish) comedian and actor. Growing up in Texas he had an affinity for the sport of baseball and dreamed of one day playing for the Houston Astros. When his body didnt grow up with his dreams, he moved to the performing arts where muscles arent necessary. At
Marquette University, Joe received the Chris Farley Scholarship for his positive use of creativity and humor.
After moving to Chicago, Joe rapidly became one of the most beloved comics in the scene, peppering his stand-up pursuits with stints on improv teams at world-renowned iO and the Playground Theaters.

He has performed at comedy festivals including TBS Just For Laughs, the Boston Comedy Festival, the Memphis Comedy Festival, Chicago Sketchfest, and was a finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award.
Joe is a regular at many Chicago comedy institutions, including Zanies, Laugh Factory, Comedians You Should Know, and Paper Machete. Hes opened for some of the biggest names in comedy like Dave Attell, Jon Lovitz, Natasha Leggero and Harland Williams.
