Cosplay Joe used to do "Anime Specific" standup comedy from April 2008 to April 2012. On May 12, 2012, he announced that he was going to better utilize his skills and make the move to music. Specializing in anime Christmas songs, Cosplay Joe gave you some great early holiday cheer and a special early Christmas present, wrapped in Inuyasha, RPG, and Pokemon Go wrapping paper!
But on May 12, 2017, on the 5th year anniversary of quitting standup, which also happens to be the 80th birthday of the late George Carlin, he returned to Anime standup, which started w/ releasing a comedy video called "Plane Crash Statistics (Anime & Politics style, 1st version [w/ Limited pics])" on the previous day. He will also be doing bits like "The 12 Days of Anime Christmas", and "Weird Anime Names", but also doing NEW bits like "Anime Man" (which is a parody of George Carlin's "Modern Man" bit) and a hilarious parody song about a certain anime that takes place in "A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't exist".
He also does panels ranging from AMV's to Anime Opening/Closing Themes to Final Fantasy, and even a very special panel called: "A Look At Shimoneta, Censorship & Sexual Suppression." Also, a panel with very positive messages called "Inspirational/Uplifting Moments in Anime" which is, precisely that, those kinds of moments in anime with commentary by Cosplay Joe himself.
