Joey Medina, a Puerto Rican who was born and raised in the Bronx, New York is one of the funniest stand-up comedians in the country today. Joey spent most of his teen years perfecting boxing skills, that would one day earn him a shot at the world title. He even held the title of Arizona State Boxing Champion.
Joey was hand picked by fellow comedian Paul Rodriguez to join his very successful national comedy tour. In the year 2000 alone, he performed to nearly 100,000 laughing fans. He can also be seen starring in Paramount’s motion picture “The Original Latin Kings of Comedy” with Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez and George Lopez and Alex Reymundo.
Joey’s non-stop schedule keeps him on the road all over the world. As a regular at all the nation’s top comedy clubs, he has also toured Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, Egypt, Israel, and was proud to perform for the USA Armed Forces before wartime in Bosnia.
