In addition to performing nightly on various shows throughout the city, he's currently hard at work on both his first hour-long solo show Joe Rumrill Is Too Scared To Be Shot Out Of A Cannon, and a musical based on the Gremlins movies. He hopes to one day, with the right combination of campaigning, crowdsourcing and luck, be the first person ever to perform stand-up comedy in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
