Joe DeRosa, a stand-up comedian, is a funny man and his sense of humor is admirable.

He is also a musician who performs regularly on-stage, but other than his professional career, fewer details are known about him on the personal front of his life.

If you don't know, he was once accused of being a gay in spite of having a girlfriend once. Today, let's take a look at the private life of Joe and the ongoing rumors about his sexuality!

Gay Accusations After Podcast

The gay rumors surrounding Joe first began to emulate as yet another celeb-gay-controversy when he featured on You Know What Dude podcast with American comedian Robert Bob Kelly in 2011.

During the podcast, when Joe talked about showering naked with another guy, Bob immediately accused him of being homoerotic.

However, Joe defended his comments stating that it would be fun taking a shower with a guy. He also emphasized that there was nothing erotic in what he said.

Further, Bob asked him what would be his reaction if he found his son taking a bath with another guy; to which Joe replied that he would be cool about it. 

Joe's comments during the podcast appearance only raised more doubts about his sexuality among the public. However, Joe was free from gay rumors when he was in a relationship with a woman.

Ex-Girlfriend Was Standup Comedian

Previously, Joe was dating stand-up comedian Nikki Glaser.

Although the exact date of the start and end of their affair has not been disclosed, the ex-lovers remained friends even after their separation.

The two also starred in the 2012 web-series We Should Break Up after their breakup. The six-part series, which was based on the former duo's past dating experience, attempted to infuse humor in their characters on-again-off-again romance.

As of 2018, DeRosa, an actor of the crime drama series Better Call Saul, is reportedly an unmarried man who is in his 40s, but he once had a crush on Seth and Seth Green's wife. Nonetheless, he was going through a family problem in 2014.
