Joey Carroll made his way onto the comedy scene on a dare. His first open mike got him his first paid gig. Joey has been described as a cross between George Carlin and Dennis Miller. His no holds barred style has won him the respect of his fellow comedians and the laughter of his audiences. Edgy is his favorite way to work. His act has something for everyone. Joey Carroll’s comedy has taken him around the world. While performing at Los Angeles’ prestigious Improv he was discovered by AKA Productions and immediately booked to use his sharp wit and flawless comic timing to bring much needed laughter to our troops around the world. Most recently Joey Carroll was a standout act at the Boston Comedy Festival. While appearing in the Hazardous show Joey was selected to perform at the Best of the Fest showcase. While performing with Bobcat Goldthwait during the Montreal Comedy Festival he was cast to appear with Bobcat in Comedy Central’s Pulp Comics. Joey’s clean observational comedy makes him a perfect act for just about any venue. Joey’s website is http://joeycarroll.com
