Joe Pettis started performing stand-up comedy in 2008 in the hopes of one day gaining enough relevance to warrant a Wikipedia page. He has traveled all over the United States – mostly by Megabus – sharing his mistakes with complete strangers in return for validation through laughter. He has shared stages with the likes of Doug Benson, Doug Stanhope, and at least one other Doug.
His two IMDB credits (which he found after googling himself) stem from his appearances on Daytime Fighting League on Adult Swim and Getting Doug with High on VPN. He is also a regular on Doug Loves Movies and pretty much any podcast that will have him. Joe has performed at multiple comedy festivals including the Nashville Comedy Fest, Laughing Skull Comedy Fest, Burning Bridges Comedy Fest, Cape Fear Comedy Fest, and is the resident comedian at the SweetWater 420 Festival.
As the founder of 1UP Comedy, he is well regarded for producing some of Atlanta’s best comedy shows. He currently hosts the longest running brewery show in the country at SweetWater Brewing Company. His former show at Joystick Gamebar was named one of the “5 Cool Things to Discover in Atlanta” by Rolling Stone Magazine. In 2017, he founded Resurgens Fest, the only comedy festival in the city to focus exclusively on local talent while raising money for the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence.
Comedy Planet is a monthly stand up comedy series featuring touring headliners from all over the nation, paired with local warm up acts. This series has been running since 2009 when it was created by The Wormhole, in a joint effort to bring more live comedy to Savannah and offer a stage to all of our great local talent. Each show has a different line up, so no two shows are the same. Comedian Derick Marchel produces the show. The Wormhole features a full bar and food menu. Come early for happy hour and to grab a great seat. Or add a table reservation to your ticket selection to get the best seats in the house.
