No two Vinnie Favorito shows are ever the same! Take your love to dinner on Valentine's Day and save your Saturday for Vinnie's Valentine Cutesy Love Show!
Boston's razor-sharp comic Xazmin Garza will open!
Known for his comedy roasts of such celebs as Tom Arnold, Magic Johnson, Pat O'Brien and even Larry King, Vinnie Favorito has a unique style of comedy. Scripted material just isn't a priority for this Boston-born comic who earned his stripes at the Improv and the Comedy Store in Los Angeles. Headlining Vegas since 2003, Vinnie has been performing in comedy clubs and on TV for more than 20 years.
If you're looking for safe and politically correct humor, then this off the cuff funny show probably isn't for you ... but if you want some edgy and raw unfiltered comedy with bite, Vinnie just might become your new Favorito.
WARNING: Vinnie Favorito intends to offend. If you are easily offended, go see another show. Must be 18 years or older to attend.
Most of stand-up veteran Vinnie Favorito's comedy comes from his finely honed ability to think on his feet. Scripted material just isn't a priority for this Boston-born comic who earned his stripes at the Improv and the Comedy Store in Los Angeles. On his second stage appearance ever, Favorito won a Top 40 Star Search Competition, simply on the strength of his natural wit. More than two decades after his auspicious debut, the comedian has been headlining in Vegas since 2003. Checking out this razor-sharp mind at work has some interesting consequences, as you just might find yourself the target of an old-style roast because Favorito is a master of crowd-work and audience interaction.
Favorito typically begins his routine with a monologue, not unusual in the stand-up world. But it gets progressively more interesting from there as the comic then focuses on the audience, targeting many of its members. No one is safe from his comic insults (and yet, everyone seems to love it). The fun element with Favorito comes not just from his insults, but because he mixes them in with sharp observations on current events.
Don't be surprised if you find yourself being compared to the latest political or celebrity scandal monger, which keeps every show he does fresh and unique. Favorito has been known to roast such celebs as Tom Arnold, Magic Johnson, Pat O'Brien and even Larry King, but non-famous audience members aren't safe from his laser-sharp insults either. It doesn't matter how respectable you really are; Favorito will find a way to show you how to laugh at yourself.
You might already be familiar with Favorito, as he's appeared on the Best Damn Sports Show Period, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn and a variety of Comedy Central shows. He's been performing on television and in comedy clubs for over 20 years. If you're looking for safe and politically correct humor, then this off the cuff funny show probably isn't for you ... but if you want some edgy and raw unfiltered comedy with bite, Vinnie just might become your new Favorito.
Xazmin Garza has distinguished herself among New England's strongest comics with her razor-sharp joke writing and dynamic stage presence. Interrobang called her "frank and hilarious," naming her a Boston comic to watch.
Garza deftly tackles subjects like racial identity, feminist politics, and modern relationships with an unapologetic edge that delights audiences of all colors and backgrounds. She is Mexican-American and was raised in Utah, which shaped her very unique perspective and original voice.
She has performed in the Limestone, Laughing Skull, Rogue Island, and Boston Comedy Festivals. Garza was also selected to be a 2017 Comic In Residence at The Comedy Studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and her comedy has been featured on SIRIUSXM.
About 17 miles north of Boston, award-winning 9 Wallis is a gorgeous, fully restored, historic location conveniently situated in the heart of Downtown Beverly's Arts District at 9 Wallis Street, right next to the Larcom Theatre -- less than half a mile from the Beverly Depot rail station and 3 miles from Route 128, with plenty of nearby parking (see map).
In April 2017, after 4 years of presenting over a hundred shows at Beverly's Larcom Theatre (featuring Grammy-winners, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers and platinum recording artist), gimmeLIVE's owners Peter and Vickie Van Ness, transformed 9 Wallis into the most intimate, elegant listening room north of Boston with comfortable seating at tables, plus food & beverage service offering fine wines, local craft beers, specialty cocktails (featuring local distilleries and all-natural juices) and top-shelf spirits.
In August 2018, Peter and Vickie were presented with the Boston Blues Society's Keeping the Blues Alive Award for their work at 9 Wallis.
Because of its beautifully restored, tremendously flexible space with the best dance floor on Boston's North Shore, 9 Wallis has become a favorite venue for fundraisers, private parties and corporate events. Local charities have raised thousands of dollars at 9 Wallis (see examples). With world-class entertainment, an event can begin as a cocktail party or fully seated dinner...then transform into a nightclub-style dance party with concert quality sound and stage lighting.
There is plenty of nearby parking at 7 lots from 150 feet away to 3 blocks away. Lots are 25 Cents/Hour (see map). Street parking is more. All parking is FREE after 8pm and on Sundays.
