More Information
You might think you recognize funny keynote speaker Vinny Verelli from an episode of “Cops” but the truth is, he’s really character actor Jon Schwartz. Jon is an award winning speaker with over 40 years of professional performing experience.

He worked with Tennessee Williams and toured the country with the Claude Kipnis Mime Theatre. He has performed at Carnegie Hall and toured 12 State Prisons with a production of Waiting For Godot.

In addition Jon has entertained thousands with his comedy as a cruise director and entertainer on the high seas. As a cruise director, Jon honed his humor, improvisational and motivational skills. You try motivating 1,200 seasick passengers while dodging a hurricane in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.

An award winning speaker and author of Motivate This, Vinny says, “If you’re not having fun you’re doing it wrong. He works with groups that want to have fun while they learn. OR groups that want a program with no redeeming value, bullet points or key strategies. Regardless of your objectives, Vinny’s street smarts, tough love and flair for fun will give your event a real shot in the arm (metaphorically speaking).

And although Jon did not appear on an episode of “Cops,” he did appear on an episode of “World’s Wildest Police Videos!” Now it’s your turn to book Vinny Verelli at your next event!
