MORE ABOUT JOE:
Joe McMahon is a darkly satirical, heavily improvisational, Florida bred and Chicago based stand up comedian. Most people think he's very funny. A few people probably do not, but such is the polarizing nature of true genius. And then there are some people who think he's just OK.
McMahon failed to grow up in Florida but moved to Chicago anyway at the age of 22. Joe spent most of his 20s as a delinquent, not pursuing stand up until his best friend moved to Europe, leaving McMahon looking for new people to get drunk and be an ass around. After a couple years of doing well at open mics and booking independent shows around Chicago, Joe along with a few other young stand ups, two of which currently have better credits than him, started This Week's Show at the worst bar in Chicago's crappiest neighborhood. The show was well received. Six years into performing, McMahon has secured his reputation as a very good comedian who is extremely not famous.
Joe is a regular at the Laugh Factory Chicago. He was part of the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal as one of the festival's New Faces of Comedy in 2018, and previously performed at the 2017 Big Sky Comedy Festival.
MORE ABOUT COMEDIANS YOU SHOULD KNOW (CYSK):
Comedians You Should Know (CYSK) is a stand-up comedy showcase which started in Chicago in 2008 at the now-defunct, Fizz Bar and Grill. The show quickly gained praise from fans and comedians alike for its unwavering commitment to presenting only the funniest Chicago comedians and visiting guests from both the alt and mainstream comedy scenes.
In 2010, they moved to a favorite downtown watering hole, Timothy O'Toole's Pub. Since then, the show has become a destination from anyone around the Chicago area. From hipsters to yuppies to suburbanites, to the occasional homeless person, anyone seeking the best in Chicago stand-up comedy knows, CYSK is the place to be!
In addition to their showcase, CYSK has produced a whopping 20 comedy albums in their room, many of them reaching the top of the iTunes comedy chart!
CYSK has gotten critical-acclaim from several media outlets, most notably The Onion A.V. Club who said: "The genuine quality of talent on display is unrivaled in Chicago."
In 2015, CYSK expanded their weekly showcase to Los Angeles and then to New York City in 2016, making it the only comedian-produced, stand-up comedy showcase to be featured in the three biggest cities in the country!
