Joey “CoCo” Diaz
Sometimes it takes a huge movie role or a part in a popular television series to put a stand-up comedian on the radar; with Joey Coco Diaz it was a #1 comedy album on iTunes and Billboard. Joey has appeared in numerous films and television shows but his storytelling on the extremely popular podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience” really showcased one of the funniest comedians working today.
Joey started his comedy career in Denver, after serving a short stint at a correctional facility, where he realized he could actually make people laugh. After his release, Joey gave it a try in a real comedy club, and that was it!
His R-rated outlook on life will get you howling in your seats but that’s what a good comedian is supposed to do. What makes Joey special is his ability to tell a story so that regardless of the subject matter, you’re still laughing. Whether it’s lighting a hooker’s wig on fire, or attacking a nun in the 5th grade, you’ll be cheering for him.
Joey is also hitting big strides in Hollywood as a character actor. You’ll see him in a recurring role on ABC’s “General Hospital,” as well as on episodes of “Children’s Hospital,” “The Mentalist,” and “Suppah Ninja’s.” The big screen is no stranger either; he’ll soon be seen in the movies ‘The Dog That Saved Halloween” and “Beach Shark Attack.” Other films he’s appeared in include “Spiderman 2,” “Taxi” and “Analyze That” but the film in which Joey stole your heart was the remake of “The Longest Yard.”
His raw style of stand-up comedy has appeared on a “secret stash” episode of Gabriel Iglesias’ “Stand Up Revolution” on Comedy Central and Showtime’s “Payaso Comedy Slam.”
Joey is a regular cast member on the #1 Comedy show on iTunes, “The Joe Rogan Experience.” His own podcast, “Beauty and Da Beast,” co-hosted by comedian Felicia Michaels, has also been in the top 10 on iTunes.
