Joe made his name as a political comedian with critically acclaimed Fringe shows including ‘Night Of The Living Tories’, ’10 Things I Hate About UKIP’ and ‘I Hope I Die Before I Start Voting Conservative’, in recent years he has moved into more personal material about mental health and being autistic.
Joe is a favourite amongst other comedians and has supported Frankie Boyle, Alexei Sayle and Stephen K Amos.
In 2020 Joe went viral with his stand up clip ‘Joe on having a non-autistic brother’ which gained over 1.3 million views across Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
His session was the most talked about of the day and staff were really keen to reflect on what he covered in his talk. He effortlessly combined humour with some very pointed observations that encouraged staff to reflect on their own perceptions of SEND.
He was very skillful in the way that he delivered his message, which meant that it really had an impact on those who took part in today’s conference. I thought his session was so excellent that I have already recommended him as a speaker to the Lead SEND advisor in Hertfordshire, so I imagine quite a few of the schools in Hertfordshire will be in contact to book him shortly!
