    As you may have heard Vinnie Favorito's run ended at
    Flamingo a short time ago.

    He has a new website is called
    VINNIE IS MY FAVORITO (Cute!)

    http://www.vinnieismyfavorito.com/

    "Your Favorite comedian is back with a whole new bag of jokes and gags. You thought is first 15 years in Las Vegas was Crazy. Wait until you see what he has in store for you when he launches his new LIVE comedy podcast show in front of a LIVE AUDIENCE. “Vinnie is My Favorito” comedy show kicks off soon in Las Vegas. Stay tuned."

    He just spoke to me on Facebook and said that
    any news about his new show will be posted here.

    I love his show and can't wait to see him again!

    I don't mean to rain on your parade, but while Vinnie may be a good comedian, he has apparently borrowed money from a lot of people and is refusing to pay it back. And I am talking many people, and some very large amounts. I first read about it on allvegaspoker (http://vitalvegas.com/comedian-vinnie-favoritos-run-to-end-at-flamingo-las-vegas/) but have since seen a lot of people talking about it on twitter and elsewhere including the las vegas review journal - http://www.reviewjournal.com/entertainment/shows/comedian-s-personal-debts-tied-closure-long-running-flamingo-show. If you look at the comments on that web page you will quickly see what I am talking about. While I understand all of us get into a bind every now and then, this goes way beyond that.

    I don't know the details of the man's personal life,
    I just know he is a great entertainer.

    I couldn't care less about his personal life. Unless he's doing a Cosby. His show is very funny.

    I too saw his show several times and really enjoyed it but was saddened to hear the reasons behind its closing. There's a big difference between illusion and reality with many of the luminaries on the strip I bet.

    I wish him well and hope he can successfully move on.

    I liked his show. Hope he doesn't wind up in a shallow grave in the desert.

    The change machines on the casino floor still advertise his show as of this morning... Poor lack of effort by CET/Flamingo marketing.
