Meet Jimmy and Vito. They're the comic alter egos of John Tokatlidis and Vince Salonia, two actors who met at Second City and immediately hit it off. Jimmy, who's Greek, and Vito, who's Italian, are both out-of-work actors who decide to move in together. Paying equal attention to hair, politics and women, they spend one memorable night drinking, bitching and making us laugh. With luck, the pair's show - they co-wrote it with director Charles Ketchabaw - could become another Tony 'N' Tina's Wedding. Ironic, since they're both alumni of that cult show. Opens Wednesday (September 15) for a three-week run at the Tranzac Club. See Comedy Listings, this page, for details.
What would Tony 'n' Tina think of your show?
John: If it weren't for Tony 'n' Tina there would be no Jimmy & Vito.
Christina, Britney or Avril?
John: None. I love my girlfriend. But, hey, she loves Britney.
Vince: That would be wicked. No disrespect.
Who's got better hair?
Vince: I do.
John: Yeah. His hair is better than Britney's.
Why should people go to your show and not the film festival?
John: You won't find anything like Jimmy & Vito at the festival - until next year, when we're there.
Vince: Potential investors are welcome.
Canadian Idol predictions?
John: Don't watch it.
John: Who's Theresa?
Vince: I heard it on the radio.
Who will have the best post-Friends career?
John: Jennifer Aniston, because she's Greek.
Vince: They all have more than enough money.
Biggest grooming challenge: unibrow or back hair?
John: I'm not a stereotype.
Vince: Buddy, have you seen those brows?
