Vince Atta

Vince Atta appearing at this event

Hot comedy talent from Manchester. It's fair to say that everything Vince Atta touches turns to gold. His high-octane performances, stunning delivery and flawless array of impressions leave you short of breath. With a broad, wonderful spectrum of material ranging from students, Spanish horses in a kitchen, psychotic London ex-girlfriends, pointless racial pride and the advantages of an alcoholic mother, Atta brings an inspiring touch of pathos which demonstrates an unerring ability to turn experience into bullet proof comedy. His festival shows Atta, Bowman and Hoo (2005) and Atta, Bowman and Hoo 2 (2006) were both among the most successful shows in their respective Manchester Comedy Festivals. '... the exciting and energetic Vince Atta. With his variety of anecdotes, stories and observations, he is permanently on a high which he manages to transfer to his audience; whilst bringing to life any character he mentions' (Funhouse Comedy).
