Joe Posa as Joan Rivers with Tony Tripoli

Dinner at 5:30, Show at 7pm.

Joe began as a dancer at the age of six, went on to study acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC, then as a long standing member of Actor's Equity and SAG, performed in numerous stage productions (both in the US and abroad), feature films, commercials and TV shows. Then in 1995, launched his career as one of the top female character impersonators in the US.

Joe performed with the late, legendary comic, Joan Rivers on several occasions; and most recently met with Ms. Rivers on July 5, 2015 in Provincetown, MA. That evening, Joe said to Ms. Rivers, "I am doing you in my show just down the street, but of course I always do you respectfully." To which Joan said,  "Joe, you can do me disrespectfully." Both laughed, Joan kissed Joe on the cheek and left. Little did he know it would be their last visit!

Over the last few years Joe has had the honor of working with Scott Townsend, arguably the top Cher Impersonator in the world. Together, Joe and Scott created the show "An Evening at The Bird Cage" with sold out performances in Provincetown, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, and Puerto Vallarta, MX.

In addition, Joe has had the honor of working with comic writer Tony Tripoli; head writer for Fashion Police and a character on Joan's reality TV show "Joan Knows Best."
Most recently the two have launched a tour of the hit show "The Bitch is Back," with performances in Boston, Palm Springs Saint Louis, San Diego and Los Angeles. In the past, Mr. Tripoli has been the opening act for Joan Rivers as Joan took her comedy, "Stage Act" on the road.

In this new show "The Bitch is Back," Tony Tripoli sets the stage for Joe Posa by sharing some hilarious moments as Joan Rivers' opening act, cast member and head writer for Fashion Police, and then passes off the show to Ms. Rivers' friend, Joe Posa, who, to quote Lisa Bacon, E Network Executive Producer of Fashion Police, "recreates all of Joan's movements, mannerisms and especially her humorwildly entertaining!"
