“Joe Cardosi is an aggravating amount of talented. You almost take it personally. He tells stories like the show is just a big party where he happened to get the room’s attention with the force of his personality” – Duncan Carson, Sure Thing Records
“Cardosi brings a frenetic, intensely literate anger to subjects like racism in his south Louisiana hometown and the hand-waving desire to Keep Austin Weird” – Cate Root, NOLA.com
Joe Cardosi is a stand-up comic, lo-fi filmmaker, sketch writer/performer, podcaster, and radio guy hailing from New Orleans. He is half and quarter assedly decent at several things and hopes all those fractions of ass add up to something someday. He hates writing bios. It makes him feel silly. He has performed at Crom Fest in Omaha, The Comedy Exposition of 2014 in Chicago, The Orlando Indie Comedy Festival, The Memphis Comedy Festival, and Hell Yes Fest in New Orleans. Joe was personally selected by Louis CK to open for him at The Joy Theater in New Orleans, and has also been tapped to open for Doug Stanhope, Kyle Kinane, Bill Burr, Wyatt Cenac, Sean Patton, Rory Scovel, Eric Andre, Darrell Hammond, and many more. He has mostly performed at empty bars for disinterested strangers.
As half of Massive Fraud, Joe co-produces the sketch/stand-up hybrid KARATEFIGHT that has hosted comics such as Hannibal Burress and Louis CK and consistently sells out every single month. He also co-hosts the monthly experimental multi-media open mic, Culture Vulture, which roves from secret location to secret location . Massive Fraud releases a new sketch video every week, and a podcast called The Fraudcast, where the duo interview comics from across the country about their worst experiences in comedy. Joe is featured on releases from Oscillations Records and Sure Thing Records that are currently available on iTunes, Spotify, and Pandora. You can find him on Twitter @endlessjoe, or perhaps in your town eating, drinking, and generally being merry … as it’s the only philosophy he truly abides by.
