Joe Tippett Biography
Joe Tippett was born on September 2, 1980, in New York City, New York. Although it is known that his parents are John Tippett and Amy Tippett, there is no information in the public domain regarding how he was brought up as well as his educational qualification.
As a child growing up, the actor’s interest was not in acting as one would naturally expect. Instead, it was in sports. However, when he was in high school, he had an English teacher who drew him into acting and since then, there was no looking back for him. This was even as he was very good with sports such that had he wanted to go to college on an athletic scholarship, it would have been easy for him.
Joe was drawn to the theatre but once he returned home once and found Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf was on, he concluded it was what he was going to do. It gets interesting to note that Joe Tippett returned home on the said date drunk.
For his education, he would later audition for a West Virginia University scholarship but he left it later to work at Williamstown.
Inasmuch as he is an actor who is highly underrated, Joe Tippett has appeared in many productions. His first film role was as Ben in the 2006 film, Gray Matters.
