Welcome to the Official Website of
Chicago-Based Actor, Voice Over Talent, Dancer, Writer, Comedian,
Vince was born at Loretto Hospital on Chicago’s west side. He knows this because Loretto Hospital is right off of the Eisenhower Expressway and every time his family would head downtown, his parents would point out “Vince was born there.” And on the way back they would say it again. When he turned 16 and started driving to Chicago with his friends he would, out of 15 years of repetitiveness, say, “I was born there”, as he headed into the city and again on the way back. Longtime friends have since started saying this to their friends and family, after hearing it from Vince for so many years. In the Summer of 2008, Vince was at a bar when he ran into longtime friend. His friend was there with a buddy of his and he introduced Vince. His buddy’s first words to Vince were “I know where you were born.”
Vince made his stage debut in two months before he was born when his 7 month pregnant mother performed in 'Two by Two' at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago. Both of Vince's parents were actors. They were the first of their group to have a child, so he ended up being the “child” in most of their plays. In 1978, he was on the Bozo Show as part of the IHSA State performance of 'Stop The World, I Want To Get Off''on Chicago's WGN-9, and has since been seen many times on WGN-9 while in the bleachers at Wrigley Field or on the WGN Morning News.
In 1995, Vince graduated from the Illinois Center for Broadcasting and worked as a producer at a Chicago's WMVP Sports Radio Station as well as doing overnights as a DJ on The Loop. He also did High School Football and Basketball play-by-play at WBIG in Aurora, IL through most of the late 90's.
In 2001, Vince settled down, bought a home, got a career as a Director of Training for Burger King and soon after, got married. But by 2005, he had lost them all and was unsure of what to do with his life. He started asking his friends and family what he was good at and they all said “making people laugh”. So in 2005 he attended Chicago’s Second City. In early 2006, he joined the Chicago cast of Tony-n-Tina’s Wedding, where he performed till October, 2010. There Vince mastered the role of The Large Italian, and he has played that role in "Johnny Boy's Graduation", The lead in 'Death of a Cannoli Salesman' , and currently as the lead in "Donna & Rocco's Big Fat Italian Wedding" .
From 2008-2012 he danced for the Chicago Matadors as is one of the founder of Fat Kidz On the Block, continuing the tradition of large men dancing.
Vince believes "Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone." He will make a joke at any situation...that's how he deals, some cry, some get depressed, he deals with humor. If this offends you, you probably won't like his "Too Soon!" humor.
