Hosted and a produced by Vinny Fasline, he defines himself as socially awkward. If you think about it, stand up comedy is socially awkward. An individual stands in front of a room of strangers and attempts to break their judgement and make them laugh, by sharing insecurities and judging others -- all of this to obtain self gratification. It's messed up right? Well... that's what makes it funny. Wait, there's more. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Come on people... that's awesome. It consistently sells out, so get your tickets now.
