Vince has a degree in architecture from Sydney University and was a successful architect before he decided to rumble the architecture of some of the most prestigious comedy venues in Australia (with laughs). He has been an MTV host and has appeared on several recent TV shows including Australian Celebrity Apprentice, Skating on Thin Ice, and many others. Smart, stylish, and extremely funny, this standup comedian is the five-time recipient of the MO Award, an award presented to acknowledge excellence in live performance.
His dauntless smile can change its hues from seriously confident to ridiculously goofy within split-seconds. Warm, upbeat and unabashed, he never seems to have enough when it comes to having his audience in stitches. He has this outstanding ability to involve the crowds in his act and have them laughing, singing, and having a lot of fun. He electrifies the stage with his energy and transfixes his audience with his animated narrative. The spell only breaks when a punch line hits home and has everyone in gags.
Observation and slapstick are his favorite acts, but he’s much larger than to be constrained by genres. He’s an extensively experienced comedian who knows exactly the right places to tickle and incite laughter. He never goes for a cheap gag, though, and is perfect for all occasions. Most other comedians can only envy the grip that Vince has over his audience. Critics call him a master at controlling large audiences. To cut it short, he’s a compulsive performer who seems to get his kicks from making people go mad (with laughter).

”Can you please personally thank Vince for stealing the show he was amazing last night. I have worked here for almost 8 years and have dealt with a lot of entertainers and he was so professional and friendly to deal with. Vince arrived early to work out the room which was hard as a lot of older people and he worked out the crowd quickly and won them over. He listened to all of the harness racing info of the favourite horses for the race and brought that into his act and I was so impressed at how quickly he did that. We have had such great feedback from the night and that is due to Vince’s performance.”-
