Always hits. Coffee with ice blended into it.

Well its definitely isn’t the show Them (Amazon Prime)…..that was like watching 12 years a slave with ghost and jump scares. But I would have to say my favorite shows have been The Boys (Amazon Prime), Mindhunters (Netflix), and anything from marvel on Disney plus. I feel like a big ass kid because I am the only one in my house who gets excited from Superhero stuff……my kids are too busy watching videos of other people playing video games or of people eating food.

Joe Moran: Comedian & Actor

Joe Moran BW Jan 2021.jpg


Joe Moran is damn glad to meet ya! Joe is one of the greatest guys in the world. The best way to describe Joe Moran is to call him what he is: a living legend. Joe is handsome, charming and simply wonderful. Is Joe special? Nah. Unique. You're damn right he is! As a kid Joe was best known for his gift of gab and his ability to spin a good yarn. Joe was a tremendously gifted athlete too. Joe played football, baseball, and wrestled. But when you get down to the brass tacks of it all Joe could play any sport well. Even badminton. Joe was stealing bases with a broke back. Joe was a fast runner too. Joe won many races. A this point you are probably thinking to yourself that it's all about Joe. It is. 

In addition to being awesome at sports Joe enjoyed finding trouble and whenever and wherever. If you could assign a human likeness to Bart Simpson it would belong Joe Moran. Joe learned how not to get caught from his three older brothers. Whether he's at the family's dinner table or in a sold out comedy club Joe knows how to work a room blending a friendly and intimate style of wit and conversation into one hilarious story after another - all with a wink and a smile.  Joe began performing stand up comedy in 2015 and has performed at The World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles. Joe has performed at Flappers in Burbank CA, the LA The ImprovThe Laugh Factory, Zanies Rosemont, and Harrah's in Laughlin, NV. Joe graduated from Lyons Township High School in La Grange, IL, and went on to Columbia College Chicago where he earned a B.A. in Communications with a concentration in Writing and Producing Television. Joe has worked in the entertainment industry as a producer, writer, performer and photographer for several years. 

Most common Quarantine activity:

There were a few activities. In August I quit drinking. I quit mainly because I was spending a lot of time arguing with people on social media. Every now and then I get sucked in and respond to a post I should not. I'm a work in progress. I read some books. Took an online photography class. Went hiking. At one point in June or July I started doing shrooms. I found it helpful. 

Favorite quarantine show/movies: 

I got into the show Money Heist on Netflix. It is in Spanish and has subtitles. I loved it! There are 4 seasons and a 5th is on the way.  My nephew Oscar is a big fan of the show "Kids Baking Championship" on Food Network.  My girlfriend and I gave it a go and found it surprisingly entertaining. Those kids are under a lot of pressure. Seeing them breakdown when it got too hot in the kitchen was... pretty... awesome.
