      The Italian Bad Boyz of Comedy are back

      Sep. 25, 2012

      The ever-popular Italian Bad Boyz of Comedy show is back this November with edition number four. This time ‘round American comedians Mike Marino and Michael Wheels Parise are on the bill, with Montreal’s own Joe Cacchione taking on hosting duties. Cousin Vinny from The Beat 92.5FM will also make a guest appearance.

      The evening festivities will start with a 6:30PM show, followed by the comedy acts at 9:00PM. And for those who are not ready to head home, the dance floor opens up after the performance.

      Without even officially starting to promote the shows, one show was almost sold out. And so when the official announcement was made earlier this month, promoter Ralph Buttino from VMG Entertainment had already added a second show. Rumor is that a third show might be added.

      A photographer by profession, Buttino’s first comedy show was held in a St Leonard café with eighty people in attendance. As the show attendances got bigger and bigger, Buttino realized it was time to step things up. He would move to the dinner show concept, slowly moving from one reception hall to a bigger one, as ticket sales kept soaring.

      “I never thought I’d be doing shows of this caliber. With Mike Marino and Sebastian Maniscalco on the bill, they really brought my shows up to a certain level,” Buttino explains.

      “Eventually I want to take Bad Boyz out west and across the border,” he continues.

      But for now Buttino is focusing his efforts on Bad Boyz of Comedy IV… and on Bad Boyz of Comedy V, which is slated for Spring of 2013.

      Italian Bad Boyz of Comedy IV takes place Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3, 2012 at Plaza Sur Le Lac, located at 1 Place De La Belle Rive in Laval. Tickets cost $70.00 and include a dinner buffet and the show. For ticket reservations please call (514) 707-9836.
