Local Teen Comic Featured in Variety

The century-old magazine spotlights 16-year-old Union City resident Joey Brag on its website.

Local teen Joey Bragg's star is quickly on the rise.

We featured the 16-year-old two years ago after he placed second at a San Jose Improv Stand-Up Comedy Competition, right behind Fremont comedian Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh and just ahead of Union City's Shanti Charan (Tri-Cities, what up!).

"Nothing is standing in my way," Joey told Union City Patch prophetically in Oct. 2010.

Those words were never truer.

Joey was recently featured on Variety.com, the website for century-old entertainment magazine Variety.

According to Variety.com, the teen has been really busy since we last spoke, appearing in Nickelodeon movie Fred 3: Camp Fred (which also stars WWE wrestler John Cena), playing a lead role in Jon Heder's (of Napoleon Dynamite fame) DisneyXD pilot "Gulliver Quinn" and taking on comedian Kevin Hart in this viral Xbox ad.

See Joey's feature on Variety.com for more.
