Vince Sorrenti

It’s hard to think of comedy without thinking of Vince Sorrenti! There is no stand-up comedian more in demand for award  ceremonies,  public  events,  product  launches, and  corporate  events  than  Vince.  His  lucid  tongue  is  the perfect delivery system for his sharp wit and audacious mind. He brings the audiences to explosive laughs at over 200 shows in Australia and around the world each year. If you have him coming to your event, be ready for tons of uncontrollable gags. Contact us to learn about his upcoming gigs and availability for your event.

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.

COMEDY GENRES

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.”-
