Dom is funnier than ever-- nearly everything he says in his stylized NY-Italian trademark is hilarious--
He was terrific and I would see him again in a heartbeat--

Description

Don Irrera is a short basketball freak from Philadelphia. He has a serpent’s tongue, which is why he has become a star on the roast circuit. Movie stars. TV stars. Sports stars. He could come up with a nasty word to say about Mother Teresa.

He grew up Italian down South Philly in a rowhouse with four generations of family members sleeping in three bedrooms before his mother moved him to West Philadelphia, so “I could learn how to run faster with the black kids.”

Don has been a doorman at bars, where his job was to eject drunken midgets; a waiter, a school teacher, a parking lot attendant, a pizza deliverer. Primarily he has been an award-winning cable TV standup comedian, a frequent guest on the Jay Leno Show, The David Letterman Show, Seinfeld, among others. His act headlines comedy clubs, theaters, and festivals around the world.

His writings have been acclaimed on the men’s room wall at Doc Watson’s 11th Street Pub in Philadelphia, and in such animated TV series as Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist, Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys and Hey, Arnold. So has his voice.

Miraculously, Dom’s tongue has not been ripped out of his mouth yet, although there have been some close calls during roasts of Bruce Willis, unfit even for Playboy; Mike Ditka, Kurt Rambis, Charles Barkley, Jack Palance, Roseanne, Drew Carey and Burt Reynolds.
