Jose Antonio ‘Joey’ Diaz was born on 19 February 1963 under the birth sign of Aquarius in Havana, Cuba and is currently aged 56. He spent one part of his childhood in his hometown of Havana, until his family moved to the US and settled down in North Bergen, New Jersey, where he was raised as an only child. Both of his parents passed away by the time he was 16, so he ultimately lived with four foster families due to his reckless nature. During that time, he was addicted to drugs, and had frequent issues with the law.

Joey went to McKinley School, and then North Bergen High School, from which he matriculated in 1982. Three years later, he enrolled into the University of Colorado, Boulder to study Economics, but soon quit.

Soon he developed his own comedy routine, and made his debut appearance at the Comedy Works in Denver in June of 1991. He eventually won the Beck’s Amateur Comedy Competition, and moved to Los Angeles, California in 1995 to pursue his career further.

He has released more than ten stand-up specials, including “The Blue Album” (2013), “Savage Dad” (2015), and “Socially Unacceptable” (2016). Furthermore, he also created his own comedy podcast “The Church Of What’s Happening Now”, which has been airing since 2014 and adding a considerable amount to his net worth.

Career on Film and Television

Speaking about his professional acting career on film and television, Joey made his debut appearance as a child actor in the television series “El Chupete” in 1973, and then was inactive until the late 1990s, when he guest-starred in the sports comedy film “BASEketball” (1998), directed by David Zucker.

In the early 2000s, Joey started getting more serious roles, since he appeared in such film titles as “Analyze That” (2002), “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star” (2003) “Spider-Man 2” (2004), and guest-starred in  television series “NYPD Blue”, “ER”, and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”.
