"Vinny Vella has seen it all and delights in telling his audiences about his parents, his adventures, and his acting career in his new one man show. Vinny in story after story regales the audience with the deeds and misdeeds of his life. Born in Greenwich Village, Vinny grew up in a family with three brothers and three sisters. His dad earned enough money from being a bicycle racer to open up a fish store in Little Italy. From his youngest days in grade school he describes himself as 'not a bad kid, just a mischievous one.' Thrown out of four grade schools for various infractions, Vinny tells hilarious stories of blaming his 'twin brother' for many of the predicaments he found himself in. Vinny ever the survivor rallies the audience to hysterical laughter and tears with his motor bike accident, lottery ticket misfortunes, an encounter with Hobo The Chimp, numerous chance meetings with Frank Sinatra, his Rikers Island vacation, matzo ball soup, Miami Beach in the 1960’s, haphazard meetings with shady characters, Little Italy and show business insider stories and let’s not forget the girls! Vinny Vella will be going out on the road to share his stories with his many fans. People from all walks of life and all ages will identify with his stories, so you don’t have to be Italian to enjoy his chronicles. Come get a peek into the hilarious antics of a life that has and continues to be a series of remarkable events."
