Top 15 Comedians

Joe List#11. JOE LIST

 

Having performed a set on The Late Show with David Letterman last year, and recently premiering a half-hour special on Comedy Central just last month, perennial comics’ comic Joe List is currently enjoying a career high many say has been long deferred. Amidst his success, however, List can still recall his humble first encounter taking the stage some 15 years ago in his hometown of Boston.

“I was terrible, but I got laughs,” he said. “I was also an 18-year-old nerd just out of high school in a bar with a bunch of old drunks, so they were probably just being supportive.”

Since that first Fenway performance, the Astoria-based comedian has gone on to a lauded career that has included such highlights as the David Letterman performance, and making it to the semifinals of Season 9 of Last Comic Standing.

As of 2013, he’s also a co-host with best friend and fellow comic Mark Normand of the tremendously popular weekly podcast “Tuesdays with Stories.”

“We have a blast,” he said of the podcast. “I get to just hang out with my best friend for an hour and we kind of just try to make each other laugh. We’ve had people come up to us and say we hate our jobs, and you help us get through work.”

“Tuesdays with Stories” can be downloaded on iTunes.
