Event description

Description

100% GUARANTEED to be a chaotic night of comedy!!

Where do you begin the task of trying to describe Johnny Rizzo? The elastic faces, the flopping limbs, the silly, googly eyes…he’s got you in stitches and he hasn’t even opened his mouth yet! And once that happens, you’re gone. At the end of the night, your face hurts – literally – from the constant laughter. He has earned the nickname, “The Rubber-Faced Comedian.”

Part old school (think Red Skelton, Jerry Lewis, Danny Kaye) intertwined with his own unique observations on everyday life, Johnny Rizzo has been cracking up audiences around the country for over 30 years. Born in raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Johnny cut his comedy teeth in some of the most hallowed clubs in New York City, including Catch a Rising Star, Caroline’s, Dangerfield’s and The Comic Strip. Before long, Johnny was opening all over the country for superstars including Jay Leno, Richard Belzer, Dennis Miller, Tommy Chong, Joan Rivers, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Ray Charles, Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Mamas and the Papas, Pat Cooper and Henny Youngman.
Johnny has headlined across the country at The Bitter End in NYC, the Borgota Casino in Atlantic City, the Riviera and Sun Coast casinos in Las Vegas and at all the major comedy clubs, including Madison Square Garden. He has appeared on numerous television programs including NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Fox’s 30 Seconds to Fame, A & E Comedy on the Road and The Joan Lunden Show. He also received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Achievement – Performance Artist, for the acclaimed CPTV comedy special, Hot Summer Nights. He also hosted his own public-access talk and variety show, The Johnny Rizzo Show.

Johnny has also toured the country as part of Jim Labriola’s Night of 1000 Guidos comedy revue show. He continues to perform hundreds of shows per year. “I’m a road monkey,” says Johnny, “I’m paying off my car with jokes.”

He has appeared in numerous television commercials and also appeared in feature films. Johnny is currently the host of ESOTERICA with Johnny Rizzo, a offbeat radio program now available for free downloads on iTunes.


Joining Johnny will be NYC Roastmasters Champion ZAC AMICO who can be seen on This Season of "Jeff Ross Presents.. ROAST BATTLE II" on Comedy Central!
