Consistent Service at Capone’s – Meet Vito: Featured Wise Guy

Guest Service Spotlight

There’s nothin’ like visitin’ a restaurant or some speakeasy knowin’ yous gonna receive consistent service. One of the goals at Capone’s Dinner Show is that each guest receives excellent service each time theys visit. That’s why havin’ a pal like Vito ‘round is so important. Yous sees all the dames, servers and wise guys at my speakeasy are special, but this month’s featured ‘pal’ is Vito. He’s been ‘round awhile and delivers consistent service to all my guests.

Meet Vito - Wise Guy (server) at Capone's Dinner & Show

Our guests ‘fall’ for Vito & his excellent, consistent service.

Vito made his way down from New York several years ago. In fact, over 10 years ago he fell into our gang. He falls alot, but more about that later… Vito is an Italian name that is derived from the Latin word “vita,” meaning “life” or “life-giving” which is very fitting. This family name was passed down to Vito from his uncle. What good Italian family doesn’t have a Vito?!

Vito is full of life and loves meeting new people at our Orlando dinner show. He enjoys servin’ guests and hearin’ ‘bout their stories. Sometimes he’s so engrossed with his guests he forgets where he is! That’s okay most of the time, but when it causes him to fall off the stage, it can be a real problem. Yous see, I’m all ‘bout takin’ care of the family, howevers, I ain’t much for workmans comp! These wise guys jus’ need to stay on stage or off of it. Course, when yous up there and all those pretty dancers are puttin’ on a show, it’s easy to fall for them gals. Yous know what I mean?

Consistent Service at Capone’s

Vito knows many repeat offenders – those folks that return to our joint again and again. Yous knows the ones. They have all the answers and know exactly how to get the best seats (either by making their reservations far in advance or bein’ VIP guests).  They’s even been known to call in their reservations and ask to sit in his section! These repeat offenders also bring their cheap souvenirs and wear ‘em over and over again. They’re some of our most beloved guests!

Other palookas that come to my speakeasy for the first time are thrilled to have Vito as their server ‘cuz they get consistent service which encourages them to visit again. All of my wait staff will keep your drinks filled, table clean and make sure yous don’t go yappin’ your jaw with Detective Marvel. After all, we’re all here to meet with Vito’s favorite “Italian Opera Lovers Society,” right?

How to Meet Vito & Get ‘Free’ Dinner Show Tickets!

If you’d like to meet Vito, or any of my wise guys and gals here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, yous can do so with ‘free’ dinner show tickets. Jus’ make your reservations online.

Or better yet, get front row seats and catch him! So’s what’s keepin’ yous from visitin’? Come see my cabaret show, have dinner and spend some time with Vito’s family.

Dinner Show or Orlando Comedy Club?

Comedy is important in our lives. We all need a good laugh now and then. (Read our earlier post about the importance of laughter.) There are many options when it comes to Orlando comedy clubs. Combined with a good meal, an evening out on the town, and you’ll probably have one of the more memorable evenings of your life. Capone’s Dinner & Show offers a lot of comedy in their show. Side-splitting laughter is quite common. However, if an Orlando comedy club is more what you had in mind, rather than a dinner theater, here are some suggestions.

Sak Comedy Lab - Orlando

Orlando Comedy Club Recommendations:

The Improv located on International Drive is very popular with tourists, because of its location having I-Ride Trolley stops (24 north/green 12 south). This Orlando comedy club features a lot of big-name entertainers. It has been a career launching pad for dozens of local comedians. The shows run primarily on the weekends with a few events mixed in on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Many, if not all of their shows are for people over 21 years of age. The menu at the Improv features appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrees, desserts and beverages (including a full bar). Keep in mind that 18% gratuity is added to every check. Groups can book events at The Orlando Improv.

Bonkerz Comedy Clubs are located throughout the United States. Central Florida is lucky enough to have several locations! Located in East Orlando, Altamonte Springs, Daytona, Oviedo and Deltona, the opportunity to have a hilarious dinner & show won’t be far away. Most tourists seek out the East Orlando comedy club on Colonial Drive. This location is known as the Boardwalk Bowl Entertainment Center. Shows are featured every Friday and Saturday night with a cover charge at $10 (usually). Here again, only adults 21 & over are allowed. Their menu consists of appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, pizza and salads with prices from $6 to $17. A full liquor bar is available. Other events, such as corporate events, bachelor parties, retirements, and girls night out can be held at any of the Bonkerz locations.

Comedy for Families

SAK Comedy Lab is another great place to experience comedy. Of all the comedy clubs in Orlando, this one is least like a dinner show. Their venue is set up theater style with a concession stand for refreshments. The venue is a 200-seat theater located upstairs in downtown Orlando. Shows are held on Tuesday through Saturday nights and are suitable for all ages. Ticket prices run from $5 for some shows to $15 general admission for their popular weekend shows. Furthermore, if you really love improv comedy, you can take classes at SAK. Additionally, you may hire a comedian for your team-building event, or even have a local comedian emcee/host your event.

Create Your Own Dinner & Comedy Experience

Worth Noting: If you are looking more for an Orlando dinner show, yet want to experience the Improv, see the show, then walk to any number of restaurants nearby to dine. Next door is Fat Fish Blue, featuring a menu of Louisiana-Smokehouse cuisine and traditional American favorites. Even more, there are many other restaurants within walking distance worth noting. They are Adobe Gila’s, Itta Bena, Taverna Opa Orlando, Copper Canyon Grill, Marlow’s Tavern and Maggiano’s Little Italy.

While not considered dinner shows, the preceding Orlando comedy clubs combine comedy with dinner options and plenty of laughter. Other places where comedians often perform are at the House of Blues and Hard Rock Orlando. Most locals and tourists still prefer an Orlando dinner show over a comedy club visit. Usually, the food is better, and the entire family can attend.

You can also find laughs in abundance at most Orlando dinner shows. Read this best list of all Orlando Dinner Shows and pick one. That is, of course, if you are not looking to spend an evening at a comedy club. If a late night or adult-only show is what you’d like to experience, any of these comedy clubs will be great for you.

Best Orlando Dinner Show Option with Plenty of Comedy

Consequently, Capone’s Dinner & Show has one of the funniest improv segments in town. The wise guys and gals are spot on when dealing with guests. Use the coupon or buy your tickets online.  You’ll pay half price! About the same cost as a comedy club/dinner-out combo.

Dinner Show Talent – Not Lacking in Orlando

Orlando’s dinner show talent is extremely gifted. We are definitely not lacking in performers with a lot to offer. With bigger entertainment venues all around Central Florida, dinner theater has a wide selection of talent to pull from. It also helps attract performers from all over the world.

It isn’t uncommon for one of the characters or performers of a dinner show to also work as a performer at a theme park. Additionally, the performing arts in Orlando offer a great resource of talent. Because it can be difficult to make a living from one show or attraction, dinner show talent often split their schedules amongst various venues. Every once-in-a-while a local performer receives such acclaim they find an even bigger stage.

dinner show talent Ginger MinjTake for instance Orlando drag queen Ginger Minj. This talented performer, Joshua Eads-Brown, grew up in Leesburg and has performed in many shows. While most dinner show talent doesn’t find itself in the national spotlight, Ginger Minj has. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is a reality show on Bravo. The show features 14 contestants vying for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.” Minj was a runner-up for the seventh season, finishing behind winner Violet Chachki.

Minj has also performed her one-woman show in New York titled, “Crossdresser for Christ — The Musical.” She has also shot a music video and traveled to several other countries. Now this dinner show talent returns to Orlando with an appearance on Friday, August 5 at Sleuths Mystery Dinner Theater. At this show, Eads will appear as the character of Madeline in “The Show Must Go On.” This is one of 13 rotating mysteries featured at Sleuths. For more information about this special appearance, call 407-363-1985 or go to sleuths.com.

Dinner Show Talent at Capone’s Dinner & Show

Orlando Dinner Show photo featuring a character from Capone's Dinner & ShowA majority of the performers at Capone’s Dinner & Show have had their fair share of success. Not only is the dinner show talent successful, the staff is as well. It isn’t uncommon for guests to return year after year only to have the same exceptional wait staff!

Not only are the actors talented, they have a special talent. The show at Capone’s features some of the best standup comedy you’ll ever experience. To interact with some audiences takes a gift like none other! From the loud boisterous guest to the shyest young child, the performers read the guest and interact in true gangster fashion.

Because there is so much dinner show talent in Orlando, why go to New York or Las Vegas? Save a night for a dinner show while you are on vacation in Orlando. Discover a hidden gem of ability. Whether it’s a gangster, drag queen, pirate, hula dancer or knight, Orlando’s dinner show talent is genius. See you at the show!

Mango’s Dinner Show – International Drive, Orlando

Mango’s dinner show dancers

The live music (and DJ spun tunes) are primarily Latin in flavor with a lot of disco blended in. The dancers and performers are dazzling, not to mention beautiful and in excellent physical condition. How else can they salsa like that?! The longer Mango’s dinner show is open, the better the entertainment will get and more performers will be added to their lineup, especially if the Miami Mango’s location is any indication.
