Vince rules!

He is overwhelmingly Australia’s most popular big event speaker, entertainer, and Master of Ceremonies. Vince’s loves and owns the stage. He has an infectious style and his material is fresh, insightful, irreverent, and very funny.

A graduate of Architecture from Sydney University, Sorrenti was part of new wave of stand up comics that changed the face of comedy in Australia in the 1980s. Whilst most of his generation and indeed most of his contemporaries no longer grace the live stage Vince Sorrenti embraces it.

Vince’s decades long list of radio and television credits is far too long to list. Suffice to say he has done it all from Hey Hey It’s Saturday in the 1980s to Celebrity Apprentice, and Studio 10 today. He hosted his own show on MTV in the USA and has appeared in every genre of TV program from Sport to Cooking! In September 2018 he will premier as the Italy and France travel reporter on Channel 9’s new Hello World Travel Show.

Vince is also an accomplished writer winning $3.5 million FFC funding for his feature film Gino, and critical acclaim for his environmental documentary No Laughing Matter in which he also starred. He has written hundreds of feature articles including editorials for the countries biggest newspapers and magazines.

All of which is secondary to Vince Sorrenti’s true passion, the live stage. Vince has become an institution. He has appeared at countless events and entertained everyone from Hollywood Celebrities, national leaders, sporting legends, and captains of industry, many of whom know him on a first name basis. He has performed in all the great cities of the world and crosses Australia dozens of times a year. In 2018 alone he has hosted and spoken at events in Aspen Colorado, Queenstown New Zealand, Bangkok, Singapore and Los Angeles CA, as well as every city in Australia many times over.
