It's 8:30 PM. You and your friends are laughing hysterically at that guy you meet at every party. You know, the guy who holds court in the living room entertaining the guests. But wait - you're not at a party. You are watching ACE ACETO work his "welcome to my living room" style of comedy. Let the show begin...
Growing up in an Italian/Catholic household and going to Catholic school as a kid has made Ace Aceto what he is today…inquisitive and irreverent!
Ace burst onto the comedy scene during the latter part of the stand-up comedy boom in 1989. His first time on stage he immediately caught attention by placing second in a local comedy contest. By 1990, Ace was chosen along with 9 other finalists to be filmed for Stand-Up Stand-Up and Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central (then known as The Comedy Channel).
A Rhode Island native, Ace worked clubs, colleges, and corporate dates up and down the east coast, before working on stage as Demetrius in Shakespeare's "A Mid-Summer Night's Dream". In 1998 he completed his first starring film role, in the independent feature film "BoxedMan", capturing attention from casting agents from Disney-Touchstone as well as 20th Century Fox.
With his instantly likable stage presence, and ability to walk the line between innocent boy-next-door and biting edge comic, Ace Aceto takes his audiences on a hysterical ride, performing dead on impressions of Casey Kasem, Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwait, Peter & Stewie Griffin, and many more! Throughout his shows, you never know what will come out of his mouth next, as he plows through hot topics like religion & dating, saying what most folks think, but are afraid to say.
Ace Aceto has worked with such comic luminaries as Jeff Dunham, Jim Breuer, Jim Gaffigan, Brian Regan, Kevin Meany, Jon Stewart, Dom Irerra, and Lewis Black (just to name a few). Ace has also opened for such acts as Huey Lewis & The News, Luther Vandross, and Herb Reed & The Platters.
Ace continues to be an audience favorite, headlining such clubs as The Comedy Connections in Providence, RI and Portland, ME, Catch a Rising Star, The Comedy Factory, Joker's Wild, and Comix at Foxwoods Casino (just to name a few!) He is a member of Toastmasters and is currently developing several motivational programs.
