One Funny Guy

By Joanna Varikos
Super Comedian | No Bull | The Substitute
Greg Vaccarello could be a character in his own “comic” book. After lending a hand as a substitute teacher to special-ed kids during the day, he then heads out into the night to fulfill the other duty life intended: comedy.

Fifteen years ago, Greg, a Hauppauge, Long Island native, met Gary Valentine in one of his acting classes. Valentine, who currently stars opposite his brother Kevin James on “King of Queens,” and a few other fellow thespians invited Greg to the East Side Comedy Club on Long Island. With one visit to the club, Greg Vaccarello knew he wanted to become a stand-up comedian.

Since then, he literally almost made someone die laughing. While performing at a comedy club in Milwaukee with 10 minutes left in the show, he heard someone yell, “Oh my gosh, Steve, don’t die!” Greg glanced over and saw a man face down in his plate. Not sure of what to do, Greg looked for the manager who cued him to keep going while the paramedics brought in a stretcher. Turns out, luckily, the guy just had a case of heartburn.
