Joe Berger is an illustrator and cartoonist from Bristol.

He has been making films, illustrating and cartooning since 1991. In 1992 he drew his own British small press comics Shooba[1] heavily influenced by underground cartoonist Robert Crumb. These were autobiographical strips and a surreal strip Drift Dream with a tank rolling down the street same as Ingmar Bergman's The Silence.

He drew The Slap of Doom in Psychopia.

In 1993 he drew The Artist with writer Mike Von Joel a picture book about how a talentless Neo-conceptual art student makes it big in the art world similar to Young British Artists Damien Hirst. It has recently been republished.

He often works with writer/sound magician Pascal Wyse.[2] Every Friday Since 2003, Berger and Wyse have produced The Pitchers[3][4] comic strip in The Guardian. It is about the madness of Hollywood seen through the eyes of a pair of scriptwriters.
