Do you want to see one of George Carlin’s favorite comics?

Tomorrow night (10/14) at 9 Wallis in downtown Beverly (I know it is over the bridge but it will be worth it) Vinnie Favorito back from Vegas for 2 shows ONLY.

Don’t be scared by the fact that most of the seats left for¬†Vinnie Favorito Unfiltered – EARLY SHOW¬†are sold. Every seat @¬†9 Wallis¬†is a good seat. But they’re going fast. You don’t want to be that guy who calls us on Saturday asking to get into a sold out show do you?¬† ¬†Get your TICKETS NOW

Vinnie is known¬†for his comedy roasts of such celebs as Tom Arnold, Magic Johnson, Pat O’Brien and even Larry King,¬†Vinnie Favorito¬†has a unique style of comedy. Scripted material just isn’t a priority for this Boston-born comic who earned his stripes at the¬†Improv¬†and the¬†Comedy Store¬†in Los Angeles. Headlining Vegas since 2003, Vinnie has been performing in comedy clubs and on TV for more than 20 years.

If you’re looking for safe and politically correct humor, then this off the cuff funny show probably isn’t for you … but if you want some edgy and raw unfiltered comedy with bite, Vinnie just might become your new Favorito.

Boston’s¬†Gary Marino¬†of the¬†World Gone Crazy Comedy Band¬†opens the show.

WARNING: Vinnie Favorito intends to offend. If you are easily offended, go see another show. Must be 18 years or older to attend.

Want to learn the concert business? Maybe we have a job for you.


Vickie and I are¬†looking for someone who wants to learn the concert business and is willing to work at it with determined dedication. We’re a very small company. Everybody does everything, from booking to promotion to customer support to data entry to house and stage management to washing towels and shopping for the artists’ back-stage goodies. So will you.

This is not an easy job. Hours vary from week to week. Priorities can change suddenly without warning. No matter how much you prepare, the unexpected always happens. And sometimes it all seems to be going terribly wrong.

If you are an excellent communicator, great with people, thrive on challenge, love to learn, love music, embrace the unknown and can find clever ways to get stuff done with almost no supervision, this could be the job for you. It’s not an internship. You’ll get paid.

Watch our video (below) and get a taste of what it’s like to put on an outdoor concert (most of our shows are not outdoors, but it’s the only video we have that shows some of the work we do behind the scenes).

CLICK HERE. Check the box that says, “I want to be on your Street Team” (Oh, did we say you’ll be managing a street team too?) and tell us why you want to learn the concert business. We’ll get back to you.
