ABOUT JOE

I’ve done a bit of everything, from hosting shows about saucy toys to trying to learn to be a sword-swallower on TV and spent years as an entertainment specialist covering movie premieres and doing celebrity interviews for ITV2 and 4Music; making Brad Pitt laugh, Simon Pegg angry and Rachel Weisz scared, before also moving into sport and current affairs.

 

I’m the creator and host of Row Z, a Football X Comedy podcast which is about 90% appalling impressions of footballers and 10% analysis and has grown to over 500,000 views a month since it’s launch in June 2021 and (hopefully!), shows no signs of slowing down. We have also just been nominated for a Sports Podcast Award, alongside a load of heavyweight nominees! You can also hear me on talkSPORT’s record-breaking podcast The Hit, where I have been part of the team since it’s launch, where we averaged 60,000 downloads a day and have been in the Top 5 of the UK Podcast Charts ever since.

 

You can also see me on my 14th season of Sky1’s What’s Up TV and pretending to know about modern music on Pop Profiles on 4Music, as well as doing my serious face on Discovering Music and Unmuted on Sky Arts, where I have also presented items about a wide range of cultural issues from homelessness, racism and miscarriages of justice to Deep Fakes and Cancel Culture. I am also currently working on my own long-form documentary about drugs and mental health.

 

I am a sport specialist and as well as talkSPORT, was a presenter across LoveSport Radio’s flagship programmes and Goal.com’s Premier League series’ The Pressure Challenge and That Weekend Tho’, which went out to their social media audience of over 22 million every week.

 

I’m also a live event specialist, hosting shows for Dulux at Wembley Stadium, Volvo in Spain, Capital FM at London Fashion Week and am the resident live show host for Sky Vegas and Production Futures. If you want things to get a little more silly though, you can watch my award-winning comedy short The Return of Louis Horne, which is in production for an even more bizarre and unsettling sequel.

 

I am also an experienced producer and director, creating films for major ad campaigns including projects behind-the-scenes at New York Fashion Week, excavating artefacts from Byzantine shipwrecks in the Black Sea and in Second World War bunkers in Hong Kong and I can edit video and audio to a professional standard.

 

Oh, I’m also a massive history nerd and like castles and old buildings, something I was able to indulge as the host of the Viral History Podcast and I’m a member of British Mensa, which I personally find crushingly embarrassing but my mum seems to think people might be interested in… So, all in all, pretty Rock and Roll aye?
