Comedienne Joy Bio

I’m Comedienne Joy, the Queen of Clean. I have three great passions in life: food, travel and comedy! I can leave you laughing in your seats or ready to pull up a chair at a restaurant. Yes, my commentary is just that persuasive. We all know that when people are planning their trip, where to eat is at the top of the list.

When I'm not entertaining crowds from the stage, I'm doing it through my TV show “Dining Out With Comedienne Joy”. I'll review a meal in such detail that you'll feel like dropping everything you are doing at that very moment just to drive on down to the restaurant to get your own plate. My buzz is positive and fun, but also make people actually go and try the featured restaurant for themselves.

As a TV host, I feature new restaurants, quirky dining spots and food festivals every Saturday at 11 am on My 68. Since viewers have said they want to eat where I eat, I created Bham Eat Drink Ride Food Tours. I use a party bus to take guests throughout metro Birmingham eating at 5 small plate items and drinking cocktails in 4 hours. Guests have found new local spots to dine with family and friends.
