Mazzeo and Vilgianese are fantastic, compelling, comedians. Without giving too much away, their routine is expertly crafted.

However, with their snappy yet deliberate pacing, you can rest assured that they know where they are taking you throughout the night. The performance feels loose, almost conversational, but this snappy pacing means they always hit their marks. Their routine has that authentic feeling that is essential to comedy.

Their humor is exciting, and yet sometimes self-deprecating. They send up Italy, the quirks of Italian culture, and possibly even your home country (all in good fun of course). As a traveller you will no doubt appreciate this as the cultural differences the duo highlights are the things that make every culture unique.

The venue itself adds to the liveliness of the evening as well. The Teatro Flaiano is a cute, authentic feeling venue tucked away, just a few steps away from Piazza Venezia. It’s the kind of theater that is getting harder and harder to find in the modern world, and though it is approaching 100 years old, it still feels new and modern. The word “timeless” is appropriate here.
