Growing up in San Diego, California and later in Rochester, New York, Vinnie Paulino was told that his quick wit and general malaise toward all things serious would bring him nothing but trouble, but instead he got a career in comedy. Vinnie’s brand of comedy has been labeled as “comedy for the every-man” because he is so honest about his own flaws. This honesty allows him to share a unique perspective on daily life and current events. Vinnie has a broad range of comedic skills, including the ability to adapt to any situation. Vinnie commands the room with a perfect mixture of charisma and wit, as well as the ability to be charming, disarming, genius, and goofy all within the span of one show.
Vinnie’s reputation as a crowd pleaser has led to a career as a Feature Act and Emcee in upstate New York and Pennsylvania. Vinnie is a founding member of Rochester’s 3 Guys Walk into a Bar comedy group, and is the current house emcee at the Joke Factory Comedy Club in Rochester NY.
