|Joel Perry grew up fat and queer in North Carolina, relocating finally to West Hollywood, Calif., where he found himself alternately loving and completely at odds with the sculpted, glamorously perfect world of Santa Monica Boulevard. For readers of Frontiers Newsmagazine and Instinct, his fish-out-of-water observations have provided both deep belly laughs and comfort in knowing that even the imperfect can thrive in the City of Angels. His optimistic joie de vivre, irreverent outlook and finely tuned sense of self-deprecation consistently furnish both insight and howls of laughter.
Joel Perry writes and produces comedy sketches for the same company that produces Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Jim Rome, Michael Reagan, and Rush Limbaugh-and often wakes up feeling dirty about it. He lives in Los Angeles with his spouse, Fred, and two cats who are so adorable and cuddly you just want to vomit.
