Joe Pera is a stand-up comedian, writer, and filmmaker from Buffalo, NY now living in New York, NY. Pera is best known for his Adult Swim series, “Joe Pera Talks With You,” which "The LA Times" referred to as "TV’s quietest, most artful comedy." He has performed his subdued stand-up on "Conan," "Late Night with Seth Meyers," and Comedy Central. After his animated special, “Joe Pera Talks You to Sleep” (which many have found to work,) he followed up with other projects for Adult Swim including “Joe Pera Helps You Find the Perfect Christmas Tree” and “Relaxing Old Footage with Joe Pera.” Through his production company, Chestnut Walnut, Pera has also directed a number of film and TV projects including Conner O'Malley's “Truthhunters” pilot for Comedy Central. Pera’s first book "A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing But Using the Bathroom as an Escape" is out now from Macmillan publishing, and on the "USA TODAY" bestseller list. “Joe Pera Talks With You” is now available to stream on Max, and Pera can be seen appearing on Season 5 of “Search Party.” Pera also voiced the role of “Fern” in Peter Sohn’s Disney Pixar box office smash animated feature film “Elemental.” Pera's new sleep podcast, “Drifting Off with Joe Pera,” a collaboration with Composer Ryan Dann, can be found on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Patreon. New episodes release on the first Sunday of each month. On October 6th, Joe released his independently-financed and produced comedy special, “Joe Pera: Slow and Steady,” exclusively on his own YouTube channel.
