Joe’s writing career began when his first book Touch and Go Joe about his experiences of OCD was published, since then he has made a name for himself as a stand-up comic, writer and speaker. Joe now focuses mainly on his unique brand of political comedy and in 2012, Joe was asked to support Alexei Sayle on his comeback tour.
Joe is now frequently performing stand up in comedy clubs around the UK.
Night of the Living Tories was Joe’s debut hour long stand up show, in which he dug up the corpses of the British Conservative Party of the past and put them on display to horrifying consequence. Joe took his follow up show, 10 Thing I Hate About UKIP, to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 and in 2017 took I Hope I Die Before I Start Voting Conservative.
Joe Wells latest project is called Think Tank, it’s a live show and podcast where comedians put forward ideas to a panel of real life politicians.
