At an early age, Joey moved to New Jersey and grew up there. After the deaths of his parents, he would have a troublesome childhood and would often end up with encounters with the police, especially because of fights. While in New Jersey, he stayed with various families, including a funeral home owner who’s said to be the inspiration for Jose to pursue comedy. He started developing his comedy skills while attending North Bergen High School.

In 1985, Diaz left North Bergen to study at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where during his time as a student, he had another run in with the police, being accused of kidnapping and aggravated robbery, ending up in prison but being released early. Diaz then became a car salesman and also started to get recognition using open mic opportunities. He moved from town to town, eventually settling in Seattle. In 1996, Jose once again moved, this time to Los Angeles, and was discovered by a talent scout who would then boost Jose’s career into television. His first appearances included the series “Law & Order” and the film “Spider-Man 2”. He became well known following his role in “The Longest Yard”, and then became a recurring cast member for “My Name is Earl”. Eventually he was hired by the Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC to make humorous commercials. Diaz would then continue to be a guest on shows including “The Mentalist” and “The Joe Rogan Experience”. A few of his recent works include “Maron” and “Grudge Match” starring alongside Robert De Niro.

Joey has been known to use his comedy talents for charity work. At one time, he even went back to North Bergen to perform at a charity event and help the local high school basketball team acquire uniforms. Diaz continues to work mainly as a stand-up comedian, with some of his performances available as albums, the most recent one in 2015 called “Savage Dad”. Diaz also tours around the United States doing stand-up performances, and is usually heard on a podcast which is called “The Church of What’s Happening Now”, which started in 2012.

For his personal life, it is known that Joey has been married to Terrie and they have a daughter; they currently reside in Los Angeles.
