Full Name: Joseph Wiley Luft
Birthdate: 29th March 1955
Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, United States
Known for: Joey Luft is an actor and producer, but he is best known for being the son of Judy Garland and her third husband, Sidney Luft, who died tragically young.
Family: Sidney Luft (father), Judy Garland (mother), Liza Minnelli (Sister) & Lorna Luft (Sister)
Joseph Wiley Luft was born on March 29, 1955, in Los Angeles, California, United States. He is the son of Judy Garland and the third husband of her third husband, Sidney. Joey’s childhood was not ideal because he was the youngest child and had to deal with his father’s abuse. He split from his late mother in 1963, and after two years, the divorce was finalised. Liza Minelli, his older sister and half-sister, is nearly as well-known in the entertainment industry as their mother Lorna Luft.
That same year, he and his mother performed their first musical, “I Could Go On Singing.” His parents split, as previously said, would occur following his debut. Joey’s life is negatively impacted by this detachment. In 1969, his mother passed away.
He produced numerous documentaries based on his mother’s memories. This achievement contributes to a rise in net worth. The Judy Garland Show (1963), The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: 50 Years of Magic (1990), Hollywood Celebrates Its Biggest Little Stars! (2009), and The Oscars are among Joey’s most well-known works (2014). He is also popular because of his parents.
Unfortunately, Joey Luft tries to keep his most personal facts hidden from public view, including his relationship status and the number of kids he has, if any, thus no credible information regarding Judy Garland’s son is available.

Judy Garland Show
During the 1963–1964 television season, The Judy Garland Show was an American musical comedy tv series that ran on CBS on Sunday nights. Despite a tumultuous history with Judy Garland, CBS has found success with multiple Judy Garland-themed television programmes. Garland, who had been hesitant to devote her time to a weekly show for years, regarded the show as her best chance to get out of serious financial trouble. Despite the fact that it was cancelled fairly early on, it is today respected and regarded as a significant piece of cinematic history.
Almost from the start, the series was dogged by production issues. Over the span of 26 episodes, the series featured 3 different producers and a number of other major management changes. With the shift in producers, the show’s format has changed as well, from humour and variety to concert. (In actuality, starting with episode 20, the show’s on-screen title was changed to Judy Garland Concert.)
The original variety format, as well as Garland’s co-star, Jerry Van Dyke, were not well received by critics. The show competed with NBC’s Bonanza, which was at the time the second most popular show on television and had a bad rating track record. Despite the efforts of supporters to salvage the show, CBS decided to terminate it after only one season.
The series was included in the TV Guide’s 2013 list of 60 shows that were “Cancelled Too Soon”
