Joe was raised in North Caldwell where he attended West Essex High School. Interested in drama and comedy from his childhood, Piscopo graduated from Jones College in Florida with a degree in broadcast management. Being the son of a lawyer, everyone in his family wanted him to walk in his father’s footsteps, but he had other plans. Joe went on to try out his luck as a stand-up comedian, and initiated his professional career from the comedy series named “Madhouse Brigade” in 1978 and climbed to fame from SNL as we already know. Though not quite so commercially successful these days, he is still a celebrated personality in comedy world.

The person who holds credit for maintaining and uplifting the popularity of Saturday Night Live (SNL) from 1980 to 1984, alongside Eddie Murphy, Joe couldn’t find the level of success he enjoyed from SNL after leaving the program. Nonetheless, Joe has starred in many Hollywood movies and television shows such as “Johnny Dangerously”, “Wise Guys”, “Dead Lenny”, “How Sweet It Is”, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and many more. These endeavors indeed helped him to amass his net worth but could not top the fame and money he earned in his SNL days. On a recent note, Joe was seen as a participant in the television reality show, “Celebrity Wife Swap” where he traded lives with Barry Williams.

Joe has been married twice in his life but neither of the relationships lasted. Joe and his first wife, Nancy Jones were married in 1973 and have a son together but they divorced in 1988, after which Joe married Kimberly Driscoll. His second marriage too ended in divorce in 2006 and Joe has been single ever since. Peeking more into the darker side of Joe’s personal life, he has been subjected to the allegation of child abuse but he has denied the subject repeatedly.

For now, Joe lives happily with his decent net worth of $3 million which has been catering to all his daily needs. With his repeated appearances on TV and in movies and his own permanent radio show in New York, named “Piscopo In The Morning”, he has been holding onto his fame and name as a celebrity.
