With his natural quick wit and charm, Johnny has joined the ranks of other comedians by performing stand-up at popular comedy clubs like Catch a Rising Star, Caroline’s, Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods, and the Borgata.  Many of you will fondly remember Johnny as the on air personality from WKTU – ‘back in the day’.

VINCENT “Big Pussy” PASTORE is best known for his starring role on HBO’s The Sopranos, and for being the first Captain to be whacked on the show.

Vinny has graciously dedicated his time to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer/Mitchell Berke Memorial Fund, Light of Day for Parkinsons Disease,  as well as benefits for World Hunger and the Connected Warriors, and will do anything for his fellow Sopranos Family.
