"He's the kind of weird, skinny, guy-next-door bohemian who's done it all majored in art history, spent a year in a convent in Ireland (yes, a convent), cleaned urinals at the Pittsburgh Funnybone. Shocking, then, that the janitorial duties would bear the most fruit: Now Joyce is a runaway hit stand up comedian on the club stages of New York"- Pittsburgh Magazine
?Joyce to the World, Jesse?s debut recording, shows why he was so good on Comedy Central?s Live at Gotham. He has great timing. He speaks clearly. He?s a likable character on stage and his material is straight ahead with crossover appeal to people from all walks of life.? ? The Comedians Magazine
?Joyce has a view askew enough to make any anecdote or observation surprising. He turns corners you didn't know were there, makes associative leaps both improbable and exactly right.? ? Albany Times Union
Jesse Joyce started his comedy career in Pittsburgh in 1998. In 2001 he made the move to New York City and since then and has been making a name for himself in cities and countries you've heard of as one of the hottest young comics working today.
He attributes his comedic instincts to growing up with his entertaining family. By following the example of his Uncle Michael, a former clown in the Ringling Bros.& Barnum and Bailey Circus and his great uncles, founders of the International Juggling Association, Joyce developed his own unique brand of comic charisma without throwing or balancing stuff or getting in or out of a tiny car.
Jesse has been seen on the inaugural season of Comedy Central?s Live At Gotham, and his Live At Gotham segment on Comedy Central?s Motherload website remains in the top most watched clip for the season. He's also been the host of AMC's Date Night, as well as appearing on Entertainment Tonight, and Lifetime. His debut CD Joyce To The World has been well received and is played regularly on XM and Sirius Satellite Radio. In addition, Jesse can be regularly heard on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom morning show and The Montreal Comedy Hour on the CBC in Canada. For the better part of 2003, he was brought on as the head writer for a fledgling comedy cable network called Jokevision by the producers of The Food Network. He wrote, sold and shot a pilot for Jokevision entitled Stop Me If You've Heard This which you will probably never see until an E! True Hollywood Story comes out about his sordid past. He?s a contributor and a member of the marginally prestigious ?panel of experts? in the book The Complete Idiot?s Guide to Jokes and was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal article about comics using the internet to promote themselves. He has also written numerous TV and radio commercials as well as various print ads. In 2001 he received 2 American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) for his writing.
Jesse has entertained audiences all over the U.S., Canada, Ireland and Switzerland. Check out the website for more jessejoyce.com
