“(a)LIVE!” stand-up show

Internationally acclaimed actor Joe Posa, Joan Rivers’ favorite impersonator, brilliantly recreates the comedy legend’s look, mannerisms and signature frenetic energy in a tribute to the late comedic genius. He lovingly and skillfully channels the edgy and politically incorrect humor as only Joan Rivers could.

His demeanor, physical appearance, facial expressions, wit and energy pay homage to Miss Rivers, and allows us to laugh at a time when we all really need to!

Joe plays to sold-out venues everywhere from the U.S. to Mexico to London.


“Having known and worked with Joan for 25 years, I forgot it wasn’t Joan on stage… You’re the BEST!” Bill Reardin, Executive in Charge of Production for “The Joan Rivers Show”.

“Joe Posa is quick, hilarious and VICIOUS! (remind you of anyone?) What a great show! Fast, funny, and FABULOUS!” Tony Tripoli, Head Writer, and Co- Executive Producer for “Fashion Police”.

“Dear Joe, WOW WOW WOW!!! You are a true master of your craft. Every aspect of your performance was 100% on point. Costume, make up, comedic timing, complete recreation of her mannerisms, etc. etc .etc. We couldn’t have been more thrilled and delighted. You truly were Joan on that stage! THANK YOU so much for doing what you do. Can’t wait for the next show!” John & Brad, Vancouver, Canada, audience members.

Joe Posa, I’ve seen your show several times over the years… and honestly you’re the next best thing to still having my dear, funny and never-give-up Joan Rivers around. I miss her the most on the red carpet. She frickin’ slayed that gig every time. And then on Fashion Police… I swear i almost needed some DEPENDS many times. She was the BEST! Thanks for keeping her alive, Joe…” Scott Ross, audience member.
