'Joe' Joseph Francis Karam (born 21 November 1951 in Taumarunui) is a former New Zealand rugby footballer. He was educated at St Patrick's College, Silverstream.

Karam played 10 test matches for the national rugby union team, the All Blacks. He also played rugby league for Glenora, winning the Painter Rosebowl Trophy in 1976 and 977.

Karam is perhaps now best known as a prominent supporter of David Bain. He helped fund Bain's appeals against his convictions for serial murder, including his successful Privy Council appeal in 2007. Bain will stay with Karam during his bail period.
