Joe Starr is the grandson of vaudeville dancer, Wally Valez, and spent his youth learning to use his body for Comedy instead of Dance. His lifelong study of the history and traditions of Show Business has made him a favorite guest on podcasts about The Biz and a guest speaker for Stand-up Comedy Classes and Acting Seminars. An 'old soul' at heart, it was none other than Comedy Legend, Jerry Lewis, who gave Joe the title of 'The youngest old man in Show Business."
