Vinny Guadagnino: The new Bo Burnham?
If you stop by Los Angeles' Laugh Factory on any given night, you could catch comedy vets Jimmy Fallon or Chelsea Handler getting back to their stand-up roots, and now one of MTV's own has joined the likes of those legends: Vinny Guadagnino! The aspiring actor, "The Show with Vinny" star and now bonafide funnyman performed his inaugural set at the West Hollywood institution this weekend, and it turned out to be just as stomach-flipping as meeting Lil Wayne.
"Did stand up for the first time tonight at laughfactory," Vinny tweeted. "Wow that was #Nervewracking but amazing!" Making a bunch of entertainment industry folks (who probably spent all day in traffic) chuckle is no easy task, and we're psyched to see that Vin successfully worked up the courage to follow through. "Man I wish I could have seen that..." one fan tweeted at him after the show was over. Well, hopefully his first time won't be his last!
