Joe Pera is back doing what he does best! After a number of successful specials the comedian is bringing us his expertise on a number of subject in his upcoming Adult Swim show, Joe Pera Talks With You. Co-produced by his frequent collaborators and equally brilliant comedians Conner O’Malley and Jo Firestone, the fifteen-minute series premieres on Adult Swim at Midnight ET/PT on Sunday, May 20.
Created by and starring Joe Pera, Joe Pera Talks With You follows a teacher (Pera) in Michigan's Upper Peninsula as he explores subject matters such as pancakes, blueberries, eggs, toast, sausage, bacon, English muffins, coffee, orange juice, maple syrup, waffles, cornbread, and strawberries.
Joe Pera most recently performed his stand up on Late Night With Seth Meyers to rave reviews. His animated special Joe Pera Talks You To Sleep can be seen on Adult Swim, which he executive produced, wrote and voiced. Joehas created, directed and produced digital content through his production company Chestnut Walnut Unlimited. He performs stand- up comedy in venues around the country and on television.
I spoke with Joe via satellite to find out more about his comedy series, why he loves stand up and how growing up in Buffalo New York gave him the opportunity to visit Toronto many times!
