Joe Baer is an avid fan of history and enjoys the character development process of acting. Through researching his characters thru biographies, autobiographies, visiting historic sites and of course, reading their work, his goal is to provide a vivid character that will entertain his audience.
“I don’t try to impersonate but rather create a character based on what I’ve learned about them. For instance, a Mark Twain lecture in the late 1800s would be very different from what I do. The audience of that time had very different expectations from an audience today. I try to create characters that speak to a 21st century audience.” —Joe Baer
