Originally from Southfield, Michigan, Joe Nipote began his stand-up career in 1980. From headlining comedy clubs across the country, Joe became a favorite opening act for many headliners in Vegas, Reno, Tahoe, and Atlantic City for such artists as Tina Turner, Captain & Tenille, The O'Jays, Dwight Yokum, Judy Collins, Barbara Mandrell, Robert Goulet, Frankie Avalon, Ben Vereen and many, many more. Joe went on to host WRIF in the morning for a year in 1987. His hunger for stand-up and acting drove him out of the radio booth and back out to LA where he quickly landed the co-starring role on the Paramount series "Viper" in which he played, "Franklin 'Frankie' Xavier Waters" for all four and a half seasons. Joe went on to star in the movies, "Casper", "Soul's Midnight", "The Fourth Tenor" & "Back by Midnight" (Rodney Dangerfield's last 2 movies) and of course "Meatballs II" in which he starred as "Boomer". Joe just recently starred in "HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm" & Disney's "Zack & Cody, The Suite Life On Deck". Joe recently Guest-Starred on DIRECTV's new Drama, KINGDOM, and his new children's book, Eggy Yolk And The Dirty Rotten Dozen™ is out and available at www.EggyYolk.com. Joe continues to act as well as produce his own Comedy Concerts for private and Non-Profits. (See comedySLAM™ page for more info.)
