It's been a long time coming for New York comic, Joe DeRosa, to release a brand new hour of stand-up comedy since 2017's You Let Me Down on Comedy Central. And that day is getting closer & closer as Joe's been playing out his new material on his Never Promised You A Rose Garden tour. 

What to know about Joe DeRosa's new hour.

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden is an all-new hour of hopeless comedy derived from the dark mind of Joe DeRosa. Celebrating pure evil, abandonment, and societal collapse, Joe’s bleak outlook on society will actually bring joy to you in this dire climate we’re all living in. DeRosa's been taking this new hour across the country beginning this past Fall including stops at Philadelphia's Theatre Of The Living Arts, New Jersey's Avenal PAC, & a stop at Toronto's Royal Theatre as part of the Just For Laughs comedy festival (just to name a few).

In the time between then and his upcoming Gramercy Theatre headliner in New York City, the man's been busy tearing up a storm in the comedy scene.

He currently hosts two heavily followed & very entertaining comedy podcasts: We’ll See You In Hell with Patrick Walsh, where the two review genre movies, and Taste Buds—a food debate show—with Impractical Jokers’ Sal Vulcano. The latter is distributed through DeRosa and Vulcano’s co-owned No Press Productions Network.

You may have also seen him from his collaborations with Pete Holmes on The Pete Holmes Show & HBO's Crashing. Who can forget the hysterical New Material Seinfeld bit?
