ItaloEuropeo has met Giacinto Palmieri, italian stand up comedian based in London.
It is now a couple of years that Giac, as he prefers to be called, has treaded the boards of several venues, from the small pub up to the prestigeous Hackney Empire where he arrived at the Final.
Italian born from Milan and now english citizen by choice, Giac talks in his show about language differences from italian to english, the struggle experienced when learning the language without missing to give a stint of irony regarding some italian politicians and how foreigners see Italians sometimes closed in stereotypes.
This year Giac is going to attend the whole Edinburgh Festival as a professional, in a very wellknown venue, a leap of faith because the commitment to stay 25 days in Scotland, charging the entrance to his show is a big step and an ambitious one. But this highlights only how confident this very pleasant comedian is and the positive responses that he has received during his previews for this great event. Following him to several of his gigs it has been possible to notice audience reactions, very sincere laughs and everyone having a great time.
In Edinburgh Giacinto will attend a press day at the Italian Cultural Insitute based in the scottish capital where other italian performers ranging from theatre and music will meet the accredited press and then from the 5th of August it will be possible to attend one of his shows at
