Description

Celebrate Columbus Day week end early with New York City’s funniest Italian – American comedians, featuring Mary Dimino (seen on Letterman, Conan, and HBO’s Chris Rock Show) and Mike Bocchetti (seen on Last Comic Standing, the Tonight Show, and Howard Stern). Other comedians include Bill Michaels (HBO’s Sopranos, MTV’s Jackass), Rich “the Steam Roller” Carucci, Buddy Flip (Comedy Central) and Jenn Palumbo.

Mike Bocchetti grew up on Staten Island, New York. He knows where the bodies are buried AND he knows ‘funny’. Mike is both loved, and respected by his comedy peers, and Mike is in demand to open for major comedy acts like Artie Lange, Nick DiPaolo and Pete Correale. Mike’s tight, solid comedy got him to the semi-finals on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. You might have also heard Mike supplying the voice of Joe Pesci, or offering his crazy views on the Howard Stern Show, or hanging out with his fellow comedians on Sirius radio show Jim Breuer Unleashed.

Mary Dimino grew up in Queens, New York, going to the same church as John Gotti. “Every Sunday the closing prayer was: Blessed be God forever and may we keep our mouths shut!”. Mary is one of the most likeable comedians on the New York City comedy circuit. “I have a face that looks like I’m gonna bake you fresh cookies, but when I open my mouth, it sounds like I’m gonna break your kneecaps.”  Mary talks about life with her Italian-American parents, how Dad was a baker in Little Italy, and “Nanna” from Sicily!
