The Broken Penis Story

Joey Rinaldi

Over a decade ago comedian Joey Rinaldi broke his penis as a teenager and lives to tell the tale in his solo show “The Broken Penis Story,” making its Florida debut in the Tampa Fringe Festival.

This uniquely intimate storytelling show uses comedy to retell the traumatic events that made the awkward phase of Joey’s life even more awkward. The embarrassingly cringey injury Joey endured is a catalyst for his hilarious observations on the impossible struggles of surviving puberty, the difficulty of growing up, and that for some, it’s worse than others.
