Joey Novick has been a political comedian, camp counselor, editorial director, professional speaker, attorney, busboy, professional speaker, child actor and an elected official. “But not necessarily in that order,” Novick shared.

“COMEDIAN ELECTED TO TOWN COUNCIL IN NEW JERSEY” is the story of Novick’s election to the Flemington Borough Council, and journey in local politics in the Garden State.

Novick served as a Councilman in Flemington Borough from 1995 - 2006, and then again from 2012-2015. Through much of his tenure, he was the lone lifelong Democrat on Council. He also served as the Hunterdon County Democratic Chair from 1996 - 2000, ran a campaign for Congress in the 7th Congressional District in 2012.

As a comedian and actor, Novick has appeared on MTV, Rascal’s Comedy Hour, and ‘One Life to Live’. As a stand-up comedian, he’s appeared at Bananas Comedy Club, Dangerfield’s, the Comedy Cellar. He’s opened up for Robert Klein, Rosie O’Donnell, Chris Rock and Ray Romano. He's also appeared in New York City at SideShow Goshko, The Liar Show, Mostly True Things and at the New Jersey Storytelling Festival at the Grounds for Sculpture.

“I started out in politics very jaded and cynical, and after fifteen years, have evolved into being passionate about public service, America, and the future of our very fragile democracy,” Novick continued.
