It's fair to say that everything Vince Atta touches turns to gold. His high-octane performances, stunning delivery & flawless array of impressions leave you short of breath. With a broad, wonderful spectrum of material ranging from students, Spanish horses in a kitchen, psychotic London ex-girlfriends, pointless racial pride & the advantages of an alcoholic mother, Atta brings an inspiring touch of pathos which demonstrates an unerring ability to turn experience into bullet proof comedy.
His festival shows 'Atta, Bowman & Hoo' (2005) & "Atta, Bowman & Hoo 2" (2006) were both among the most successful shows in their respective Manchester Comedy Festivals. Both included Vince's hour-long headline performance. They were referred to by ManchesterComedy.com as "a blinder in terms of every aspect of making a successful festival show."
In October 2006 Vince won the much-coveted 'City Life Comedian Of The Year' Award.
Previous recipients include Peter Kay, Caroline Aherne, Chris Addison, Jason Manford & Seymour Mace. As well as having an award winning set, Vince is an excellent compere employed not just on the comedy scene but for a wide range of events including Emergenza's prestigious Battle Of The Bands competition 2006 performing in front of 1500 people & hosting the Middlesbrough Mixed Martial Arts Tournament 2006.
