5 Questions is a series by Steve Duffy –

An incredibly powerful performer, comedian Vic DiBitetto churns energy, honesty and humanity into non-stop laughter. His pace is frenetic. He’s been called a cross between Rodney Dangerfield and Ralph Kramden. The bottom line is, DiBitetto will leave his audiences breathless with laughter.

SD: Who did you inherit your sense of humor from?

VD: My dad! He was sneaky funny. He would always wait for that one quiet moment and drop something on us and make us laugh. I love the old-school comedics, the ones who made this country laugh: George Carlin, Jackie Gleason and Rodney Dangerfield. 

SD: Do you remember the first joke you learned?

VD: It was 1981, I went on stage at Pips Comedy Club in Brooklyn with a few props. Andrew Dice Clay was the emcee that night. I held up a stick of Ban Roll-On and said “look, its Mick Jagger’s chap stick.” At least, my family laughed. 

SD: When making the video for “Bread and Milk”, did you ever think it would become virtual sensation and a winter storm staple?

VD: No way! I almost deleted it because I thought it was stupid. It all happened because my wife didn’t want to cook. That 26 second video made me more famous than all my years of doing standup. I love social media. 

SD: What’s your style of comedy?

VD: It’s honest, loud and rapid fire, spit and sweat everywhere. I have been call the “Italian Sam Kinison.” I talk about being married, having kids, and growing up in NYC. It’s comic gold. 

SD: Are you better at stand-up comedy or improv?

VD: It’s definitely stand-up. Improv takes a very special talent.  If I am on stage, I won’t shy away from trying improv.  I can promise your readers that their stomachs will be hurting from laughter after coming to the show.
