He is 23 going on 12 and sees Sorrentino as both a father figure and manager. Joey is in love with the dream of being MICHAEL but doesn’t get the fact that it is more than the costume and the wig. His relationship with Sorrentino runs very emotional because Joey has nowhere to live and stays at the mansion full time. His southern accent gets in the way constantly. He is charming, childlike but a bit off center but loveable.

"EVEN STEPHEN" being branded as the #1 Tribute production company in the world will generate an incredible amount of income for live concert performances.
We have structured plans to expand the brand upon the completion of season 1 to a live show on the Las Vegas Strip (Already Negotiated) plus 5 touring companies through current partner companies such as Pinnacle Gaming, Stations Casinos, Tropicana Gaming and Harrah's Hotel and Casinos as well as expansion of the current Celebrity, Royal Caribbean and Costa Cruise lines.
With the added press, the touring companies of the EVEN STEPHEN shows featuring the stars of the series it is feasable to expect a $5M to $7M live show revenue.
Music clearances and international use of music is in place. To keep costs and licencing down to a bare minimum, Stephen Sorrentino and Even Stephen Music publishing will compose and produce "similar" or "sound alike" songs for the artists to perform on the series. Sorrentino, a former writer with famous Music and Paramount, along with his musical team will supply and license the songs to the producers at a fraction of the cost of the original and might possibly generate new releases or even HITS!
Hear a sample of Michael Jackson "type" music created by Even Stephen.
Possible Spin off shows
**TV COMPETITION SHOW: With the popularity of the show on an international level, a "talent search" series can be generated as a second show
