Neal is an old young comic. Neal is old and crotchety in life, but very young into the comedy realm. In his short time he has been able to tour and perform comedy across the country, most notably featuring for Jeffrey Ross and performing at the Oddball Comedy Festival. Neal also had a speaking role in TNT’s new TV drama, Good Behavior. He will also be appearing in an Netflix series in 2018. The best comedy advice he has received was from Greg Behrendt, who told him, "There is no expiration date on your dreams," a motto which Neal uses to motivate himself in his career.
He is the weekly host of both Creative Loafing’s “Best of Atlanta Podcast” Hot Breath! and “Best Local Comedy Show” Funny Monkey at Java Monkey. Joel also teamed up with MIT professor Dr. Robert Joseph to develop the #1 comedy writing manual, “Finding Your Funny: The Comic’s Playbook.” His inspired work ethic has been forged from sharing the stage with veteran comedians like Ron White, Brian Regan, Kathleen Madigan, Louie Anderson, and Margaret Cho. His most recent accolades include writing for Comedy Central’s Roast Battle at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and being crowned the 2016 National Champion of Search For The One Comedy Competition. 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.
