Larger than life, Jim Labriola thinks all of the world’s problems can be solved by looking at everything from an Italian perspective! Raised in New York City, Jim brings his street-saavy edge to the Bananas stage and elaborates on why he’s witnessed an unusual number of heart attacks. As a current resident of the Sunshine State, he discusses his hatred of cold weather and his new found friendships with palmetto bugs. This episode of Bananas is packed with high-energy comedy on everything from the joys of flying, to joining gyms (but not going), and pet ownership. Bananas is more than just a comedian with a mic. It’s a variety show featuring interviews of the not-so-serious kind, as well as some hilarious unscripted moments caught on tape. Jim loves to interact with the crowd, get them involved in his show, and find humor in their lives. Best of all, Bananas featuring Jim Labriola is good clean fun for the whole family!
