A powerful performer, comedian Vic DiBitetto churns energy, honesty and humanity into nonstop laughter. His pace is frenetic. His material vivid and true. From his first words, to his famous, word-free, mannequin head encore, DiBitetto leaves his audience breathless with laughter.
Vic DiBiteto has appeared on television’s “America’s Funniest People” (ABC), where he was a $10,000 Grand Prize winner, as well as “Stand-Up Spotlight” (VH1) and “Last Laugh” at Pips, a pilot with Woody Allen and Danny Aiello. In addition, he has warmed-up hundreds of audiences for hit shows such as “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and “The Ricki Lake Show.”
Vic has performed at many of the nation’s best comedy venues such as New York City’s Dangerfield’s,
Los Angeles’ Laugh Factory, Las Vegas’ Riviera Hotel and Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel.

Dig, it’s appropriate that this cat has gigged in nearly every comedy venue in the United States. At home in an eclectic gathering in San Francisco or a rust belt bar come shifts end, this clever comic will turn the tables on everyone. Winner of the prestigious”Best of Philly” award presented by Philadelphia Magazine, Stank takes you down a road you didn’t expect to travel with a conversational style that makes you feel like you’re riding the bar stool next to him. Among his international television appearances including Comedy On The Road” with John Byner on A&E, Mike presents a special wit that transcends all mediums and blows his audiences away! Maybe that’s why everyone wants him back.
Originally from Erie, PA where Mike realized playing second base on the Duck Inn softball team would not propel him to the “Big League”. He moved to Philadelphia to cut his teeth doing stand-up. With his rust belt influence, his intellectual proclivity and a blue-collar approach to humor, he turned Philadelphia on its ear. Stank does for stand-up what TomcWaits does for music. So if you like Mr. Waits and have a penchant for Charles Bukowski, you’ll love Mike Stankiewicz!
An interesting aspect to Mike’s career is that he has lived on both coasts (LA and NY) and fits seamlessly in both locationsvas well as everywhere in between. Now Stank plies his wares everywhere from Las Vegas to Atlantic City, from Mobile to Montana. He’s a modern day Kerouac, hell, you probably passed him “on the road”!
