Where to begin with Joel's story? ...
One night when Joel was just a young teenager, his father took him to see American comedian/magician, The Amazing Johnathan. Before Jonathan took to the stage however, Joel witnessed another comedian called Peter (who in later years would change his name back to Akmal.) By the end of that fateful evening, Joel knew he would become a comedian himself.
Joel‘s first opportunity at stand up comedy came in the form of his high school public speaking competition. Rather than delivering a conventional speech on politics or the environment, he chose to turn his speech into a stand up routine about the anxiety of Wombat’s, which left both students and teachers in stitches, and Joel with the Public Speaking Award. Joel then began honing his craft on the street at Sydney’s Circular Quay.
Not too long after leaving school Joel got a call from The Amazing Johnathan who offered him to move to America and tour around the country with him. Joel jumped at the opportunity, and also further developed his street performing in Los Angeles on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, and travelling across America, taking in the best and worst that America had to offer.
Upon returning to Australia, Joel became a regular in comedy clubs across the nation where he continued to develop his stand up. He has gone on to perform regularly at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Adelaide Fringe Festival, The Sydney Comedy Festival, The Brisbane Comedy Festival and has taken his comedy around the world from South East Asia to Las Vegas.
