Larry Venturino is a stand-up comedian living in Florida but originally from Rhode Island. He burst onto the Southwest Florida comedy scene in his mid-30s. He had already been married and, of course, divorced. Then, he adopted two kids! He's a middle-class white single father raising two Hispanic children doing his best impression of Diff'rent Strokes. All the while, Larry's pushing two decades as a social worker. He's seen the best and the absolute worst in people. When asked about reliving these experiences on stage through his comedy, Larry says, "This is therapy for a mind who has seen it all - triumph and failure, heroes and abusers, life and death."
Larry Venturino regularly performs at clubs and private events. No stranger to the stage, he was the frontman for three touring punk rock/hardcore bands. His brand of comedy is endearing yet intense while taking the envelope and pushing it to the limits. He has performed with nationally touring headliners including: Kevin McDonald from the Kids In The Hall, Dat Phan, Jim Florentine, Bobby Collins, Pablo Francisco, Kevin Farley, Preston Lacy from Jackass, Marc "Skippy" Price from Family Ties, Frank Del Pizzo, & Christopher Cowles.
His debut digital EP - "Do You Know What's In That?" was recorded on April Fool's Day 2017 at the legendary Laugh In Comedy Cafe in Fort Myers, FL. It is raw. From the clink-clank of silverware and bar noise to the ambient noise of a speaker or two to eruptions of laughter and groans - it's a taste of experiencing Larry's live show. Released in May 2017, it is available in digital media outlets worldwide including iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Bandcamp, and the Laughly streaming comedy app.
