LAUGHING THROUGH THE PAIN: JOBY SAAD [EP.08]

Growing up in Nashville Tennessee, Joby Saad read of Harry Houdini and was performing children’s magic shows most weekends by age 12. He eventually became a stand-up comedian and hasn’t looked back.  Creating the character The Village Idiot, Joby’s big break came from his starring role on an episode of the family friendly television series Bananas Comedy in 2005. Then in 2006 came the Warner brothers “Thou Shalt Laugh” starring Patricia Heaton from “Everybody loves Raymond“. Featuring seven of the nations top clean comedians it went on to become the highest selling comedy DVD within its genre.  Joby is currently a judge and performer for the annual Clean Comedy Challenge which promotes clean comedy for younger comedians as well as veterans comics.
