Detailed theatre bio below, if you care to look.

Joe grew up in a theatre. His parents founded the Worcester Foothills Theatre in Worcester, MA when he was two years old, and ran it for the next 25 years.

He studied in the theatre’s conservatory program, and then at Syracuse University, earning a BFA.

He acted in theatre around Massachusetts for the next 8 years, including Foothills, Lyric Stage, Merrimack Rep, New Repertory Theatre, and StageWest. Roles included Daniel in The Waverly Gallery, Tony Lumpkin in She Stoops to Conquer, the Actor in The Woman in Black, and multiple roles in The Mystery of Irma Vep, A Tuna Christmas, and Fully Committed.

At the Charles Playhouse in Boston, he logged over 700 performances of the long-running Shear Madness, rotating all four male roles. He also wrote, produced, and starred in the one-man show Gonzo Night School at the Boston Playwrights’ Theatre.

Since moving to Los Angeles, he’s written and performed another one-man show; Joe Smith Tells You How to Live Your Life, as well as appearing in many of LA’s storytelling salons (see video at top of page).
