Joseph Hershkowitz

Joseph is honored to be a part of the Say What? Improv Group. From a young age, I was an incurable smart ass. One of the first things I did when I turned sixteen was annoy the Marine Sergeant that called from the Selective Service. He did call me a comedian, but I got the impression he did not say it with love in his heart.
