Wild Card Comedy

Ace Aceto

He may look young, but for the past decade Ace Aceto has been entertaining audiences with his unique and edgy twist on topics ranging from Buffalo Wings to Catholic Guilt. Ace energetically works the stage adding lots of audience participation to his shows. You never know what may come out of his mouth next - but rest assured that Ace will always let the crowd in on the real fun. No stranger to the corporate world, Ace has been involved in various facets of the pharmaceutical and medical industries for over a decade.


Mary Ellen Rinaldi

Truly a character with character, Mary Ellen Rinaldi has a distinct style of stand-up that's unique among comics today. She's funny. She's poignant. She's a superb storyteller. You'll shake your head as she shakes your world, touching your heart as she reaches right into the nooks and crannies of everyday events. She's a step ahead, a cut above, and all at once sophisticated and simple, universal yet intimate. She knows you, your kids, your parents, and she's here to tell you about it.
