Live At The Storefront: Joe Kilgallon Listen Up

Joe Kilgallon is a comedian, actor, writer, and former little league all-star. Kilgallon started his stand-up comedy career after reading that most presidential candidates had more than 38 credit hours from a Junior College and came to the hard truth that a run for the White House was a long shot at best. 

Described by the Chicago Tribune as having "a straight shooting, pull-no-punches style", Joe has performed at clubs and colleges all over America. He's been a personal opener for stars such as Hannibal Buress, Roy Wood Jr and Steve Byrne. With material ranging from alcohol to sex, Kilgallon is sure to rant about something the whole family can enjoy. 

After only a few short months in LA, he became one of the quickest comedians to get passed at the world famous Laugh Factory in Hollywood. Kilgallon has appeared on NBC Sports and TBS. His debut album, Pay Attention, opened #1 on the iTunes Comedy Charts and Top 10 on the Billboard Comedy Charts. Joe also produces Comedians You Should Know LA, a weekly stand-up showcase blending the best of LA’s club and alt scenes every Thursday night at the Improv Lab in West Hollywood! Joe has also taken his love for sports and turned it into a hit podcast called Comedians Talking Sports. In the mean time you can follow Joe on Instagram where he constantly posts pictures displaying how cute he used to be. Watch Joe this spring on NBC's Chicago Med!
