Joe Wengert

Joe Wengert is a UCB sketch comic and improviser who brought delight to the world with his Gigardi’s Frozen Yogurt sketch/character/work of art. It is honestly probably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen or heard. He began his training in New York where he was part of Reuben Williams and he now performs weekly in Los Angeles as part of The Smokes. If you go see UCB Tourco in your town there is a good chance you’ll see Joe! Lucky you!
