Joe DeBolt: Actor & Comedian
We ponder. We innovate. We design. We amaze. Outgoing, well-trained, great comedic timing. These are the attributes that many have used to describe Joe DeBolt. Joe started his career back in Indiana by joining an improv troupe. It was during this time Joe began driving from his hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana to Chicago once a week to attend classes at The Second City. Once he was ready to make the jump (which he was ready for pretty quickly) he moved to Los Angeles and continued classes at The Second City Hollywood as well as The Groundlings. It was at both of these institutions he honed his skills not only as an improviser but also as an actor.
Since being out in Los Angeles, Joe has won multiple awards which include 1st place in the LA Scripted Comedy Festival (2013 & 2014), Best Web Series in the Miami Independent Film Festival for Tardy Boys (2015), Best Trailer at the United International Film Festival for Shady Glen (2017).
He’s also worked with a number of great performers such as Michael Hitchcock (Best In Show, Waiting For Guffman, A Mighty Wind), Shawn Hatosy (Southland, Animal Kingdom), David Dean Bottrell (Boston Legal, Criminal Minds), and Stephen Tobolowsky (Groundhogs Day, Silicon Valley).
To keep him busy in between projects, Joe performs standup regularly at The Comedy Store as well as the co-creator of BoredVids
