- Dirty, inflammatory, or otherwise inappropriate?
- Difficult to work with?
- Hard to get a hold of?
- Not funny?
My name is Joe Dungan, and I’ve heard these complaints about comedians too many times. If there’s one quality as a comedian that I have, it’s NOT having the five qualities above.
When I feature at an event, I cater to the event’s needs, not the other way around. I talk to the event organizer beforehand to determine parameters, acceptable vs. unacceptable subjects, and other details. I even write new material tailored to the organization involved. I pride myself on my professionalism and the quality of my material. And I have no inconvenient middlemen; I don’t even refer to myself in third person!
In addition to stand-up comedy, I’m also available for:
- Punching up speeches
- Writing roasts
I’ve been performing and writing comedy in one form or another in two different millennia now. In addition to stand-up, I’ve spent years acting and doing improv comedy. And I wrote L.A. Nuts, a series of comedic essays about Los Angeles, which won several awards, including first place in the humor category in the Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards.
