Personal Note From Val: It’s not every day I get to chat with a fellow animal lover like Joey Camen. He’s shared the stage with Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, Jay Leno, Jim Carrey, David Letterman, Rosanne Barr and many more.
Voice over actor, standup comic and first time author, Joey Camen’s story about how his Sheltie-mix dog Snoopy changed his life made me laugh and cry. When he was only 10 years old, he experienced a horrible incident that made him distrust and dislike dogs. Then his Hollywood friends love of their dogs started to intrigue him, and then he connected with Snoopy who melted his heart. You’ll love his impression of Arnold Schwarzenegger, hysterically funny! Then, get some Kleenex and be sure to listen to the end where he reads his poem for Snoopy… You’ll be glad you did. Enjoy!
Joey Camen is a veteran stand-up comedian, voice talent, actor, and award-winning short filmmaker. He has performed professionally since the age of seventeen in everything from movies, to sitcoms, to Las Vegas showrooms.
