Featuring Joe Yannetty
Like most native East Bostonians, Joe Yannetty is hilarious. He was raised in an inner city Italian neighborhood which means that being funny is not only a survival skill, it is in his blood. Where Joe grew up, if you’re not willing to kill somebody you had better make them laugh.
At the age of 20, Yannetty walked into the Ding Ho Comedy Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Like a little boy’s first time at the circus he was amazed, so he ran away to it and never looked back. Joe very quickly became one of the top comedians in Boston and throughout New England. When he moved to New York, it wasn’t long before he became a regular at all the most popular clubs in Manhattan. Los Angeles called, and Yannetty headed west. He began headlining clubs all across the United States, and television appearances followed. Joe has logged more than 40 TV shows. He can be seen in and also wrote the HBO movie SUCKERS for which he won a Best Screenplay award. A move back to the East Coast brought with it morning radio on two of Boston’s biggest stations, WROR and WZLX. Wanting to expand his horizons, Mr. Yannetty took to the seven seas and is currently headlining the world’s largest and most prestigious cruise lines. In 2014 Joe was diagnosed and subsequently survived Stage 4 throat cancer, which has led him to Motivational Speaking and huge corporate events throughout the globe. Not only does he deliver an amazing message, he will make you laugh while doing so. You will not find a more well- rounded, more professional, or funnier entertainer.
