too much." Which may be putting Descartes before the horse.
Joe is an author, writer and professional smart&ass. He's an incredibly accomplished ghost-writer, having
produced five published books in the past two years.
has literally grown up in the writing business, starting his pro career at the tender age of 13. He's worked for most
of the major comedy institutions including National Lampoon Magazine (back when it was the funniest thing in print) and a
18 year stint at The Second City Theaters.

- Contemplations on the Nature and Meaning of the Irish Race (Andrews McMeel Publishing)

In the distant past, Joe was Founder and Executive Producer for Second City Communications - the production arm of
The Second City Theaters. He was also creator and execproducer of The Sports Bar - a hilarious syndicated series and
