He Jokes About Being Mistaken for a Woman
Because of his high-pitched voice and baffling appearance, the famous stand-up comedian/actor Joe Machi is thought of as ‘a trans’. There is no factual proof or statement from Machi’s side, to buttress this allegation.
However, he has admitted to being confused for a woman on several occasions. In 2018, Machi made an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’ starring Jimmy Fallon.
In this stand-up, he shared one funny incident in which he was thought to be a female by a stranger who heard Machi’s voice on the microphone. Later, when Machi met the stranger in person, he was yet again mistaken as Machi was referred to as ‘Ma’am by the same stranger.
The comedian/ actor stated that this was not the only time such an instance and awkwardness has surrounded him.
He also recalled passing through a similar awkward situation when he was visiting Disney World a few years ago. In this incident, Machi was acknowledged as “the meanest pregnant lady ever” by a child.
Machi Told His Parents He Is Gay. Is He Gay?
In a video uploaded on March 20, 2019, Machi unveiled how he confessed to his parents he is gay. Don’t grasp your breath yet. This was more of a stunt to see his parent’s reaction to the news.
As per the same video, Machi’s gay friend once told him, he (Machi) could never understand the feeling of confessing about gay gender to his parents. Machi argued that he could because one doesn’t necessarily need to be gay to confess it.
