Joe Faina – ATX

Originally from Los Angeles, Joe Faina moved to Austin five years ago to do two things: go to graduate school at the University of Texas and pursue stand up comedy. In addition to sort of making his parents proud, his experiences have resulted in an array of hilariously out of touch and un-relatable material that has been featured at Fun Fun Fun Fest, Hell Yes Fest, and the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival. He’s also written for college humor newspaper Texas Travesty and college sports satire site The Salutatorian.

Joe Faina is returning Austin Sketch Fest for the second time, the first being with the cast of Austin’s Encyclopedia Show, a monthly comedy variety show where he currently serves as the occasionally accurate Fact Checker.
