Dante: Comedian & Corporate Emcee
Corporate stand-up comedy expert, Jay Dante Rusciolelli, is known in the entertainment world and to his fans across the country, simply as Dante. Dante was a stand-out on NBC's, Last Comic Standing, where he became one of only two comedians in the history of the show to receive back-to-back audience favorite awards. He won the $10,000 grand prize on America's Funniest People, and currently holds the record for most comedy awards ever presented to a single comedian at the BET Comedy Awards.
Dante's stand-up comedy act is an ideal match for company events, which is why companies like Sony, Sketchers, and Bank of America have hired him to headline their important meetings. Dante also serves regularly as a comedy host and emcee for awards nights and conventions - writing custom jokes and comedy routines specific to the company, honorees, or event. See the information article at the bottom of this page to learn about how Dante can incorporate a corporate "Roast" of a CEO or speical guest into your event.
In addition to being one of the hottest stand-up comics and hosts currently touring, Dante is also an accomplished actor. He starred for 2 years on the sitcom, The Blackberry Inn on BET and was the commercial spokesman for ICE LITE. He is currently schedules to star in 2 comedy movies for National Lampoon.
By combining his backgrounds as a comedian and an actor, Dante can come into your event posing as a motivational speaker, important CEO, or a new company employee. As one of these characters, Dante can address your crowd with a hilarious "fake" / "spoof" motivational speech.
Dante is without a doubt one of the most multi-talented corporate stand-up comedy acts working today. Email Brandy at the booking office to discuss how Dante can add some funny to your company's meeting plans as a host or after dinner entertainer.
