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.  For more information on Vinnie Favorito Unfiltered, visit
