Joe Rumrill

Joe Rumrill is a fictional one-eyed spinach-loving sailor created in 1929...Wait, no, hold on...Joe Rumrill is a Brooklyn-based stand-up comedian and writer who performs anywhere you need him (no sewers, please. Not after the last time...) His work has been featured in Seriously.TV, Splitsider, and the Village Voice. Joe can often be seen playing various characters on the weekly MNN series The Special Without Brett Davis. He's the creator of Fresh Perspectives a popular weirdo comedy showcase in Williamsburg that has been featured in the Brooklyn Comedy Festival. He co-created Cartoon Monsoon, a monthly UNeducational "children's" variety show bursting with puppets, animation and costumed characters that can be seen at the Annoyance Theater. His talents were utilized as a writer/story producer for the upcoming web-series Start Talkin' with Scott Rogowsky. 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. Speaking of, Joe's Christmas list can be provided upon request, and, as luck would have it, he's been a very good boy this year.
