It was through the group that he co-created Skinny Sundays, a night of unfair stand-up comedy attracting some of the biggest names and best hidden talents in the stand-up world. As producer and co-host, Joey was a part of the show's blossoming and eventual landing with its new home on the main stage of the world famous Hollywood Improv.
