“The combination of Joe’s calming vocalization and inventive writing is a thing of magic. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more enjoyable show.” - Buzzfeed

West Virginian-bred, NYC-based comedian Joe Zimmerman made something special with Cult Classic, directed by Nate Bargatze. Zimmerman began his comedy career in Asheville and Charlotte, North Carolina and returned to Asheville to record his debut one-hour special at The Grey Eagle. In this autobiographical soon-to-be cult classic, Zimmerman covers childhood and adult friendship, the story of a murderous owl, the upside of depression, the courtesy of ghosting, and the strange lesson of David and Goliath.


Watch now so you can remember it in 20 years as the ultimate cult classic!
