Joel Brill


The Lovable Curmudgeon

As a card-carrying member of AARP, Joel Brill, aka, The Loveable Curmudgeon, has pretty much seen it all, done it all and can’t remember most of it.  He shares the bits and pieces that he can remember about life, with side splitting results.  His unique blend of comedy comes out as he discusses the challenges of being a senior citizen, marriage, business, sex, kids and a host of other topics.

As a young man, he moved from a small, rural town on the east coast to Los Angeles because it was a cool place to live.  He lives there now because it is a warm place to live.

During his career in ultra-high technology Joel gave the industry a great boost...he retired.  He has developed and lead training seminars in motivation, presentation skills, sales, marketing and management.  He also ran a non-profit company.  “Oh, we’re not a charity; I’m just a lousy business man.

In 2016, he won 2nd place in Golden Artists Entertainments, Funniest Comic in Los Angeles competition.

He has performed at comedy venues throughout, including such majors as The Comedy Store, The Hollywood Improv, The Ice House and major comedy festivals such as The World Series of Comedy and The Burbank Comedy Festival. Joel is also a regular, guest co-host at The Comedy KLIQ Internet Show.

 Here’s a sample of what you can expect:

Charity – I perform for a lot of charity benefits and fund raisers.  There is one organization that I am particularly fond of and want to make you aware of it.  That is The Tempura House.  The Tempura House is a shelter, for lightly battered women.

Erectile dysfunction – Viagra is expensive.  With Medicare, it’s $25 a pill.  40 years of marriage and I’m paying for sex...again.

Business – I’m semi-retired.  When someone my age tells you he’s semi-retired that means he owns a business and isn’t making any money.

Communication - My wife came home and told me she just spent $300 on this new wrinkle cream. I said, I don’t think you need new wrinkles. (For what happened next, you’ll have to come and see him live)
