Artist Bio: Vince Maranto
Vince started his comedy career, at the now defunct Comedy Cottage in suburban Chicago, in 1982. He quickly became a regular at the local clubs, and then, worked his way throughout the U.S. During the years that followed, Vince performed for ZANIES, THE FUNNY BONE, THE IMPROV, CATCH A RISING STAR, and FUNNY BUSINESS, among many, many, other clubs.
Some 350 clubs, nightspots, one-nighters, honky- tonks, gin-joints, and over 10,000 shows later, Vince is still going strong. He is among the quickest witted comics in the business, with his shows consisting of “everyday” occurrences and audience dialogue. Upon seeing Vince again, people often tell him that they thought of him the other day, as one of his observations actually came true in their lives.
Vince has appeared on Superstation TBS, Comedy Central, PBS, as well as NBC and ABC in Chicago. He has been in several movies including the original version of “Meet the Parents”. Vince is also in the book “I KILLED”, stories of the road from America’s top comedians.
