Joel Richardson is the founder of Soul Joel Productions, the largest independent comedy production company on the East Coast. SoulJoel's Comedy Club & Lounge in Royersford, PA is the first official home Joel has made himself for stand-up comedy, 13-years after he began producing comedy shows at various locations throughout the tri-state area. Back in 2009, Joel left his day job, cashed out his 401K, and started producing comedy shows full time while running Soul Joel Productions. Producing shows in 21 different states allowed Joel to take the best qualities of each venue to bring the vision and dream of opening SoulJoel's to life. People, now more than ever, have asked, “Which show should I come to?" The answer is simple: SoulJoel's is the seal of approval. Buy any ticket that Joel puts his name on. Each show features the best comics from around the country that have appeared on The Tonight Show, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, HBO, Showtime, MTV, SiriusXM Radio, and much more. Joel was recently featured in a documentary film entitled "Soul Survivor" detailing his fight to find creative ways to stay open so he could help his community continue to stay laughing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
