You might think you recognize Vinny Verelli from an episode of “Cops” but the truth is, he’s really character actor Jon Schwartz. Jon has over 40 years of professional performing experience, including working with Tennessee Williams and performances at Carnegie Hall. He has toured numerous prisons…as an actor of course and has entertained thousands as a cruise director and entertainer on the high seas. For over 20 years Jon and his wife produced theme party entertainment for the corporate and convention trade in Atlanta.

As a veteran of the events industry, Jon is the perfect person to have on your team as you plan your next meeting.  Jon’s planning skills, and ability to make any conference a fun experience will make your event not just entertaining, but highly effective as well.

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!

  • Jon’s performance at our annual conference as Vinny Verelli was second to none. He was an event planners dream to work with as he was very accommodating when the schedule shifted or he had to do some quick thinking on his feet. I would recommend Jon as a speaker to anyone looking for a professional and entertaining MC.
