Who is Joe Kwaczala?

Well... he's a stand-up comedian and writer living in Los Angeles, by way of Chicago. Maybe you know him as one of Comedy Central's 2017 Up Next Comics to Watch. Or you've been to The Wheel Show, the long-running sketch/variety show he hosted at the Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics. Or perhaps you've seen his writing/jokes over at The Onion News Network or ClickHole. It's possible that you've watched Cowards, the independent pilot he made that won "Best Comedy" at the New York Television Festival. What about Does Dave Know We're Here? the web series he co-created and starred in for IFC? That could have been it.

Or maybe you're his mom. In that case, you know him from giving birth to him.
