The Guidos of Comedy is a one-of-a-kind comedy show featuring two of the top Italian-American entertainers working today. Tommy Tallarino and Michael Vitiello are smart, quick-witted, and always sharply dressed. These good friends somehow flash all their New York Italian attitude without the usual vulgarity and low-brow humor. Tommy T, and Mikey V entertain their audience with stories, jokes, and songs; transporting them back to the glory days of Las Vegas with the style and class of their legendary Italian predecessors.
Tommy Tallarino is the story-teller in the group, honoring his comedy heroes Bill Cosby and George Lopez with hilarious stories of his lifelong fascination with the gangsters he saw in the movies contrasted to his decidedly non-gangster upbringing. Watching Tommy T on stage you will become familiar with nearly every member of his family. An accomplished television writer and actor, Tommy T created and starred in his own series on Comedy Central called The SportJerks NBA Tour; partnering with executive producer Danny DeVito and NBA Entertainment. Tommy T was also a recurring actor on the HBO show Luck.
Michael Vitiello is the musical talent in the group. With the swagger and style of a young Dean Martin and the comedic timing of John Travolta’s character Vinny Barbarino, Mikey V parodies the Italian staples such as That’s Life, Ain’t That A Kick in the Head, and That’s Amore on his guitar. Mikey V is a classically trained theater actor, beginning his career on stage in New York City. Mikey V’s credits include appearances on Spike TV, Fox Sports World Series promos, and the recently completed The Bronx Bull.
The talented, likable Guidos Of Comedy deftly pace this energetic 60 minute show with jokes, songs, and friendly banter. You never know who is opening the show or closing the show as the good friends share the bright lights like never before. The Guidos of Comedy... two stars, one stage.
