Stand-up comedian and writer Joe DeVito was persuaded by his coworkers to pursue a career in entertainment after he had been working as a journalist and advertising writer for over a decade. The encouragement payed off in 2006, when DeVito was invited to perform at Canada's Just for Laughs Festival. His set, packed with quips about his Italian-American family and the monotony of relationships and politics, earned him rave reviews and put him on the map as a prominent up-and-coming comedian. His quick and natural wit attracted invitations to appear on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and NBC's Last Comic Standing. DeVito has landed himself multiple panelist appearances on Chelsea Lately, CNN's Headline News and Animal Planet's Wild 100, while also securing a regular guest spot on FOX News Channel's Red Eye.
