Gathering material from a wealth of life experiences, Jose takes audiences on the rollercoaster ride that’s been his life. Born in Cuba and deported because of his father’s political prisoner status, he came to the U.S. at a young age. Growing up with a hard working, and always quirky, Cuban family brought loads of funny moments everyday.
From his mother’s ability to kill a chicken with her bare hands, to his Dad’s ability to hit on any woman, anytime, there was never a dull moment. What they did best was teach him to work hard for his dreams, and not forget how to laugh at life and himself. He made them proud when, after high school, he was accepted to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. He became an officer in the Air Force, is an accomplished aviator, and is a veteran having served in Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. He’s been all over the world and has even been shot at in two countries. This and more he brings to the stage believing that, “if you can’t laugh at a hard time in your life, you ain’t over it yet.”
His comedy career started out in New York and Philadelphia, getting on stage anytime he wasn’t serving. He performs all over the country now and is rapidly becoming an audience favorite for his ability to make deportation, and life threatening moments hysterical.
He’s been featured in the Air Force Times, was selected for the 2007 Latino Laugh Festival in Los Angeles, and the Lucky 21 Contest at The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. In 2008 he won the Funniest Person In South Texas Comedy Competition and was a semi-finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition. In 2009, he was a finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition. In 2011 he was the winner of the Rocky Mountain Laugh Off in Salt Lake City, UT. He’s been seen on CNN, CBS, Fox, and Lifetime’s “Coming Home” with his touring group, The GIs of Comedy, and recently on NUVO TV’s “Comedy Unfiltered,” with Anjelah Johnson. He is the co-host of NUVO TV’s Stand Up and Deliver which airs it’s fourth season in 2015. Most nights you can find him on stage somewhere, but one week a month its all dog tags and volleyball, down in Texas, teaching the next generation of top guns the basics. Read more...

Comedian, actor, and writer Josh Wolf has become one of the most sought after personalities in comedy today. From adding his quick witted commentary on comedy round tables, to becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author, writing on hit television shows, and headlining stand-up comedy tours across the nation, Wolf has proved time and time again he is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted comedians in the entertainment business. Wolf is currently a regular round table guest and writer on the hit E! series “Chelsea Lately”, and recently appeared as a performer on the new E! series “After Lately”. In March 2013, Wolf will debut his latest book, “It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Single Dad” [Grand Central Publishing.] Funny and brutally honest, the book details Wolf’s adventures as a struggling stand up comedian, while juggling being a single parent in Los Angeles.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Amherst, Wolf had a love for comedy and making people laugh from an early age. As a teenager, he took to the stage in the Boston area, performing his first stand up show when he was 15 years old. By the time he was in his mid-twenties, he was ready for a fresh start, and moved to Seattle, Washington in hopes of expanding his comedy career. He was able to get more stage time and practice in the comedy world, as indie musicians were dominating Seattle’s live entertainment scene. When he was 28, Wolf decided to make the move to Los Angeles. After several years in Seattle he had made his mark in the local comedy circuit, and wanted to play with the big boys of comedy. He quickly discovered it wasn’t any easier being a small fish in a saturated comedy pond, than a big fish in the entertainment pond of a port city.
In 1999, Wolf got his first big break, performing a one man show at the HBO Workspace which landed him a talent deal at 20th Century Fox, and a deal for his own television series with ABC. A deal with NBC soon followed. While testing the waters on the television front, Wolf began writing for TV, and quickly found it was another aspect of the entertainment business that he loved. He wrote on numerous sitcoms including “Yes, Dear”, Will Smith’s “All of Us”, and “Cuts”, starring Shannon Elizabeth. He soon decided he wanted to dedicate all his time to writing, and stepped down from stand up, and appearing on camera.
In 2006 Wolf returned to television, appearing on the fourth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”. This also marked his return to sitcoms, recurring on the hit series “My Name Is Earl” from 2006-09, and recurring and writing for “Raising Hope” in 2010-11. 2009 was also a banner year for Wolf, as he started making regular appearances on Chelsea Handler’s hit E! television series “Chelsea Lately,” and he toured nationwide with stand-up comedy sensation Larry the Cable Guy. Wolf also found a way to tap into his passion for sports, and hosted two seasons of “The College Experiment”, a comedic weekly online college sports show for Fox Sports. In 2011 Wolf ended his touring with Larry the Cable Guy, and committed to appearing on “Chelsea Lately” once a week, while in conjunction writing for the show. He also became a New York Times Bestselling Author, for his contributions to Chelsea Handler’s bestselling book “Lies that Chelsea Hander Told Me”.
In 2012, Wolf landed a book deal with Grand Central Publishing to pen his first book written solo, “It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Underprepared Single Dad”. He also recently wrote a screenplay feature for Adam Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison. In addition to his work on “Chelsea Lately,” his stand-up comedy tours, and his book, Wolf also works on a podcast with fellow “Chelsea Lately” round table member, Ross Mathews. Airing on The Road Hop Network, “Josh and Ross” showcases the guys sharing their unique view on pop culture and the news of the day.
Wolf currently lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife Beth. In his down time, he loves to hang out with his wife and kids, Trevor, Kaitlynn, and Jacob. On the charity front, Wolf has a passion for supporting the troops & actively participates with various organizations. Read more...
