It obviously pays to insult people! Comedian and celebrity roaster Vinnie Favorito has proved so popular insulting his audiences that Flamingo President Don Marrandino has just extended Vinnie’s contract there for another three years.
“Anyone coming to Vinnie’s show should check their humility at the door. No one and no topic is off limits in his theater,” Don said. “Vinnie never does the same show twice, and audience members will never forget their turn in the hot seat. It’s a wild show.”
Said Vinnie: “Performing at the Flamingo has been an awesome experience, and I couldn’t ask for more. People pay me to insult them, and I even get my own parking space! Life is good.”
Vinnie has been performing on the Strip as a unique, in-your-face stand-up comic for more than 10 years, but he’s also known for his celebrity roastings of many well-known celebrities including Jerry Springer, Pat O’Brien, Larry Flynt and Magic Johnson. He performs at the intimate 220-seat Bugsy’s Cabaret at 8 p.m. daily.
