Joe Kwaczala lives in Los Angeles but started his comedy career in Chicago. He grew up in Pittsburgh. He is a comedian and here are some relevant facts:

His stand-up was featured on the nationally-syndicated public radio show Live Wire!

  • He also has made a bunch of videos, including an award-winning pilot, a web series for IFC, and a lot of other stuff you can watch here.

  • Every October, he puts on an intentionally bad "parody of a parody" show at the UCB Theater called Bill & Ted's Spooky Halloween Spooftacular

  • As a twitterer, he tweets tweets for Twitter here. Paste Magazine said he was good at it.

  • Joe also has a podcast about his one true love (and one true shame) the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It’s called Who Cares About the Rock Hall? and you can listen to it here.
