Vince Atta is a beatboxing, hip-hop, loop-station comedian! He combines expert technical live looping with audience participation, vocal sound effects and of course witty punchline to deliver fresh musical comedy. 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.
