Joel Joan (Catalan pronunciation: [ʒuˈɛl ʒuˈan]) (November 2, 1970) is a Spanish actor, screenwriter and director.
His first major television role came in 1994 on the TV3 show Poblenou. That same year he helped found the Kràmpack theater company. The company's success gave them the opportunity to create a television show. The sitcom Plats bruts (“Dirty Dishes”), co-starring Joan, made its debut on TV3 in 1999. Joan went on to direct, write and co-star in Porca misèria, which aired on TV3 from 2004 to 2007.
He is an administrator of Arriska Films, the production company he founded in 2000. Arriska Films has produced the television show Porca misèries and the film Excuses!
Joan is one of the instigators of the Sobirania i Progrés ("Sovereignty and Progress") platform in support of Catalan independence. He has been the president of the Academy of Catalan Cinema (Acadèmia del Cinema Català) since its foundation in 2008.
