Vinnie Favorito grew up in inner-city Boston, one of the toughest places to grow up as young kid in the United States. Instead of balled-up fists, Vinnie fought the bullies back with his sharp tongue and quick wit. He admits he talked himself, and others, out of dozens of scary situations. From there, poking fun at others just came naturally, and unbeknownst to him, Favorito was on his way to stardom. Favorito began performing professionally in 1985 as a stand-up comedian. Favorito’s very first Las Vegas comedy show was at Binion’s Horseshoe, where he was the very first headliner of a comedy show there in 1986. He headlined in dozens of clubs all along the East Coast. In the later 1990s he made a decision to move to L.A. to advance his career and began hitting the big-time there. Since then he’s performed at such venues as Comedy Central and the Improv Comedy Club. Today, he is a renowned celebrity roaster and celebrated improv comic.
