Once Joby takes the stage the audience recognizes immediately this is going to be a show, laughing before he utters a word, through his inate comedic personae. Generally making fun of himself before he comments about the day, and life's daily obstacles that we all can all relate to. Exhibiting respect to well crafted material and a natural improvisational ability.
Best known from the Warner Bros Highest selling Christian Comedy DVD "Thou Shalt Laugh" as well as Sony Owned "Bananas", Comedy Central, ABC news, CMT, and the international tv show " Vidiots" that describes Joby as the American MR Bean. His comedy is universal, outrageous at times but always clean and tasteful.
Joby was very professional. He used the information we gave him and brilliantly incorporated it all into the show. We will definately have him back. Everyone is still talking about his Aunt Jolene Character.
Joby was a HIT at our wedding! My hubby and I wanted to surprise our guests with a little gift so we hired joby after watching his videos and losing our minds over his hysterical faces and style of comedy. He exceeded our expectations and was a RIOT!!!! We had him pretend he was a guest so he mingled with our guests and non shalantly grabbed their names and some info and included them in his performance, It was a perfect touch and everyone was surprised. He started off dancing to Billy idol's "white wedding" doing some of his famous goofy dance moves & funny faces while lip syncing and everyone was hysterically laughing!!! It was so funny! He was amazing and we are so happy he was included in our special evening, the memories will be cherished forever. THANK YOU JOBY!
Joby Saad was hilariously funny at our company Christmas Party. My husband and I laughed so hard we cried! His comedy is original and clean. He uses his voice, body and his facial expressions, which make his act fully entertaining! I'd love to see him again soon!
What a pleasure to work with such a funny and original act. Many of the audience members attending the 5 Star Theatre recognized Joby from his television appearances on "Thou Shalt Laugh" and "Bananas". His show is high energy, clean, and hilarious and he is a true gentleman and a pleasure to work with. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

The show can be produced big or small depending on budget from large stage pieces of flying machines, doves, magic and musical effects dance numbers to a scaled down basic straight stand up comedy based on rapid one liners and physical comedy. Joby has taken his show all over the world and honed his skills to play any audience and venue.

Living in Los Angeles, working as a comedian, Joby Saad started a company called Village Entertainment. He instructed his roommate to answer the phone that way — “Village Entertainment” — whenever anyone called.”Frequently, what would happen is, the phone would ring and Rob would answer and say ‘hello.’ And I, in the background would shout, ‘You idiot!’ And then the caller would say, ‘Let me speak to the Village idiot.’”
“My father used to give me a hard time. He would always call me an idiot. Or, sometimes, he’d say, ‘You’re a fool,’ and I’d get upset. ‘I thought I was an idiot?’… ‘Well, you’re both!’ ‘Great! Now I have to redo my resume.’”
George Shapiro of Shapiro/West Management (Jerry Seinfeld’s management) took notice of Joby’s talents at a performance at the Ice House in Pasadena California. “George made calls, and the next thing I know I’m auditioning for network sitcoms, say’s Joby”.

Then in 2006 came the Warner brothers “Thou Shalt Laugh” starring Patricia Heaton from “Everybody loves Raymond”. Featuring seven of the nations top clean comedians it went on to become the highest selling comedy DVD within its genre.
There were moments in my career that may not seem that significant to others but mean a lot to me. Like being introduced by Jay Davis at Dublins on Sunset blvd and having to follow Dane Cook, or just to hold my own in the same room with the same audiences with so many of the best comedians of the day.
From that Joby launched his own television series “Vidiots” ”It’s silent comedy. I love being able to tell a story and reach an audience of all ages and all languages. The humor is universal and continually reaching an international audience. Having been broadcast on cable, however its popularity on youtube is what has gotten Joby stopped and recognized on the streets of New York city.
Known for his expressive, rubbery face. Makes sense that he’s a big fan of physical comedians such as Steve Martin, Jim Carrey, and Tim Conway.
His stand-up, like his films, involves a lot of physical comedy. He frequently closes his shows with an inspired bit where, in pantomime, he removes one pair of pants after another, becoming a new character each time. But everything he does is clean.
