Massimo Cannistraro

Massimo’s performance is a blend of overblown confidence with a touching vulnerability, packed into highly amusing personal anecdotes. Massimo is all about making a personal connection with the audience through his unique style of storytelling. One reviewer described Massimo as, “Both physical and cerebral” and the Montreal Gazette said, “Massimo is, without question destined for the bigs.”

This Montreal native has performed around the globe in cities like London, England; Adelaide, Australia; and Edinburgh, Scotland. He has also performed in numerous comedy festivals including the world renowned Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. He has appeared in the festival three times, including the 2012 and 2011 Just for Laughs Festivals.

His television and film appearances include, The Comedy Network’s Great Canadian Laugh Off, Bite TV’s Stand Up and Bite Me, Spike TV’s comedy series Blue Mountain State and the 2014 blockbuster X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

“Massimo comes across as a charming and charismatic comic with unadulterated loveliness at the very heart of his show” – Barrie Morgan, The Skinny
