ABOUT THE PERFORMER
New York City-based comedian Joe Zimmerman has had an eventful couple of years. In addition to making his Comedy Central debut on John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, and was one of the prestigious comedians to be chosen to film a CC Half Hour stand-up special in 2014. Joe made his late night debut on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, performed on Nickelodeon’s NickMom Night Out, appeared on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show, and was chosen as one of the acclaimed New Faces at Just For Laughs Montreal, where he was positively reviewed by both The Spit Take and Time Out NY. Joe’s debut album “Smiling at Wolves” reached #2 on the ITunes Comedy charts when released by New Wave Entertainment in January 2014.
Praised for an accessible style pairing absurdism with a fun loving demeanor, Joe has been personally selected by Ricky Gervais as a Conan contest finalist, other festivals, and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM and Pandora. He is an original member of the Beards of Comedy, the most requested tour in the Southeast from 2008-2012. The Beards released two albums (2011’s Cardio Mix on Comedy Central Records); their Beards Across America MSN web series amassed more than a million views.
“Great comic alert! Great writing and timing, and in your town soon—see the future!” - Maria Bamford
“Avoided many of the clichéd mannerisms and styles of the contemporary stand-up world without coming across as arrogant, smug, or snarky.” - Charleston City Paper
“An approach to comedy that, I believe, is welcoming to all (well, mostly all as long as you like your comedy leaning on the smarter side of the fence).” - The Comedy Bureau
ABOUT THE HSCC
The mission of the Humane Society of Chittenden County (HSCC) is to foster compassionate treatment of animals and to prevent animal suffering.
HSCC is a private, independent, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that receives no city, state or federal funding. They are not affiliated with any national organizations, such as the Humane Society of the United States. They rely solely on the limited revenue generated by their programs and fees, and on the tremendous generosity of the community. They serve Vermont’s most populated county, Chittenden, as well as Grand Isle County.
Founded in 1901, HSCC has been serving both animals and people for well over 100 years. The original facility was built by June & Herb Davis, considered the modern-day founders of HSCC, but was outgrown by the late 1990’s. Their current facility was completed in October of 2002 and boasts nearly 12,000 square feet of animal care and adoption space, where they take in 800-1200 animals each year and welcome as many as 20,000 visitors annually. The majority of the animals at HSCC are cats and dogs, but they also provide care and services for small animals such as rabbits, ferrets, and rodents.
