"Joe's work offers a fresh perspective that is both honest and insightful."

Professor Cornel West


Emmy Award-winner and two-time HBO Def Poet, Joe Hernandez-Kolski is an actor/poet/comedian who is constantly in demand, known for his live performances that are hard-hitting, truthful and incredibly funny.  Originally from Chicago, Joe now lives in Los Angeles.  He is a graduate of Princeton University where he worked closely with respected academics Dr. Cornel West and Nobel Prize Winner Toni Morrison.

He is very excited to be guest-starring in the upcoming Netflix reboot of "Gilmore Girls!" (It's a fun li'l role!) He is also very excited to finally have a day off from traveling so he can finally frame those posters that he's been dying to frame and also fix that bookshelf that fell.
