Joel Byars

Comedian, Podcast Host, Writer

For Joel, stand up comedy is an outlet to examine the fine print of life and he will continue to provide authentic entertainment until deemed illegal.

 

Growing up in a house of educators, Joel has combined his passion for educating and entertaining by hosting his award winning Hot Breath! Podcast, teaching a weekly comedy class and co-authoring “The Comic’s Playbook” with MIT alum Dr. Robert Joseph. All of Joel’s professional endeavors are designed to help people discover their creative process.

 

Joel’s inspirational story has been featured in publications ranging from Atlanta Magazine, Creative Loafing’s “Best of Atlanta,” ATL Eats and being selected as “Morning Person of the Day” by international creative community Creative Mornings. Some of his accolades also include writing for Comedy Central’s Roast Battle at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and being crowned the National Champion of Search For The One Comedy Competition.

 

This success has only driven Joel to keep challenging the limits of himself and comedy to empower others.

What They’re Saying!

“As a club owner, I’m harder to please than most when it comes to stand-up comedy. I’ve seen thousands of comics, and Joel Byars has a real knack for relating to the audience. He is on time, consistently funny, our audiences love him, and in this business it doesn’t get much better! I recommend him for stage work and writing.”

Craig Wilson
