Joe Tippett is an actor who has done everything from stage acting to television to film. He has been acting since 2006 and has made more than 20 films, including Gray Matters and Monsters and Men. Although he has been an actor for so long, he is now more popular as a partner of the singer and songwriter Sara Bareilles.
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 publicly available information about how he was raised and what education he received.
As a growing child, the actor’s interest was not in acting the way one would naturally expect. Instead, it was the sport. However, when he was in high school, he had an English teacher who got him involved in acting, and since then there has been no turning back for him. And this although he was very good at sports, so it would have been easy for him if he had wanted to go to college on a sports scholarship.
Joe was attracted to the theater, but once he returned home and saw Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf was on, he concluded that this was what he wanted to do. It is interesting to note that Joe Tippett returned home drunk that day.
For his education, he would later audition for a scholarship to West Virginia University, but he later left to work in Williamstown.
Being a severely underrated actor, Joe Tippett has appeared in many productions. His first film role was as Ben in the 2006 film Gray Matters. He also appeared in Our Time (2016), Monsters and Humans (2018), and Patsy and Loretta (2019). His popular work Rise (2018) is on television, although he has been appearing since 2013.
On stage, where his light shines the brightest, Joe Tippett has many performances both on and off-Broadway. In 2013 he was in Ashville, followed by Airline Highway (2015) and then waitressing in 2015 and 2016, and in the same year he also appeared in Indian Summer, This Day Forward, and Familiar. His most recent works are All the Fine Boys (2017) and Our Very Own Carlin McCullough (2018).
His Relationship With Sara Bareilles
The relationship between Joe Tippett and Sara relates primarily to their joint work on the 2016 Broadway show Waitress, which the singer wrote and also played the role of Jenna, while Joe took on the role of Earl Hunterson. However, this was not her first meeting. The first time they met was in 2015, when they tried out the same show outside the city in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at the American Repertory Theater. That was the beginning of their love story.
Soon after they met, their friendship blossomed into an object. It was not until 2017, however, that they appeared together in public for the first time as a couple at this year’s Tony Awards.

Joe Tippett is terrible at singing:
He may be a good actor and a veteran on stage, but when it comes to singing, Joe has admitted that he doesn’t have the best voices. He described some of his singing attempts as simply terrible, so he prefers to point his guns at acting.
As mentioned earlier, not so much is known about Joe Tippett outside the acting scenes. For this reason, the relationships in which he was involved are also not known. On the other hand, it is known that Sara Bareilles was in a relationship with Javier Dunn before his relationship with his current partner. The two former bandmates had a long relationship until 2013 when they decided to go their separate ways.
