Being bit by the producing bug, Joseph would go on to produce his brother’s next show Judy and Me originally a one night solo show at the Duplex, Judy and Me would be turned into a play, and was booked for four nights at Rose’s Turn. Where the show would wind up running for two years and then go and tour around the country. After Judy and Me toured the show took a break before returning to New York in an Off Off Broadway Run and then Off Broadway run.

He looks forward to the next 20 years of many more shows, And has big ideas for the future.
