Good-looking and easy going, Joey Vega makes them laugh and makes them think. Born in New York City, Joey received some of his acting training at the legendary Herbert Berghof (HB) Studio. He’s used that training in many feature films, most recently Rounders, and Row Your Boat. He also worked on Ryder, PI, An East Side Story, and Punchline with Tom Hanks.
The acting is great, but performing in front of a live audience is Joe’s first love. Joey has made them laugh from coast to coast and everywhere in between. Whether it’s a packed house at Trump Castle in Atlantic City, or in front of 20,000 people at the famed Madison Square Garden, Joey has so much fun on stage that you can’t help but have a great time watching him.
Joey has combined his comedy with motivational speaking — helping people realize that anything is possible in America. No matter who you are — Latino, Black, white, female, gay, disabled — you can go beyond all obstacles and become successful in America.
Joey takes a lot of pride in knowing that he can make a difference in people’s futures. People leave his shows not only laughing, but also feeling good about themselves and their future.
Joey has logged some impressive time on radio shows, trading laughs with Howard Stern and others. He’s appeared in all the major comedy clubs, including Comedy on the Road, Carolines, Comic Strip Live, and many others. He also hosted his own TV show called The Latin Connection on Fox.
Whether it’s making people laugh in nightclubs or concert halls, Joey Vega is motivating and entertaining people all over the world. Book him for your next event. You’ll be glad he’s not only on the job — he’s loving it!
