A) No. Joe is not liable for the breach of contract.
If accident happened after the contracted was made and signed, but before the service was provided, then the contract is viod. Accident meant, for example, car crashed caused by someone else fault. Joe had done all possible things to aviod it.
B) Yes. Joe is liable for the breach of contract
Since Joe was drunk, it was not an accident in legal prospective. Joe will take up whole or partial lost of the show.
