Joel has been doing stand-up for the last 3 years. He has been dealing with issues that he feels are indicative of having your thumb on the pulse of America: ponchos, bottled water, basketball, and turkeys. He calls his stand-up “absurdvational humor” because most of it is observational with an extremely exaggerated or fabricated twist. Put simply, he makes stuff up. It’s harder for people to get offended that way. He’s going to college just in case he’s one of the 4% of people stand-up comedy doesn't work out for.
