Joe Zimmerman (@JoeZimmerman) comes across onstage as a sort of idiot savant, a kind of Will Hunting-meets-Forrest Gump. His jokes are incredibly smart and full of common sense, but approached with a wide eyed "Aw, shucks" attitude and a hint of a southern drawl that makes it feel more like the wisdom of an old regular at the corner diner than some smartypants showing off. And there's a genuine warmth and niceness that shines through it all, even when he's pointing out the utter stupidity of something.
His jokes are also pretty silly fun. He's more likely to be talking about wolf packs, bigfoot and pizza delivery than politics, sex or racism (at least in a head on way), which is why he's such a perfect opener for Brian Regan. So yeah, if my endorsement's not enough, you should definitely trust Brian Regan's taste.
You can check out Joe on his weekly show Hot Crowd, new monthly show Deeprness, and all over NYC and the country (full schedule). Or if you just wanna listen to him play the dummy to two smart guys, check out Universe City Podcast.
