Ace Aceto Comedian
Ace Aceto burst onto the scene during the latter part of the stand-up comedy boom in 1989. His first time on stage, he immediately caught attention by placing second in a local comedy contest. By 1990, Ace was chosen along with 9 other finalists to be filmed for Stand-Up Stand-Up and Short Attention Span Theater for Comedy Central (then known as The Comedy Channel).
A Rhode Island native, Ace worked clubs, colleges, and corporate gigs up and down the east coast, before working on stage as Demetrius in Shakespeare’s “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream”. In 1998 he completed his first starring film role, in the independent feature film “BoxedMan”, capturing attention from casting agents from Disney-Touchstone as well as 20th Century Fox.
Ace may look like the boy next door, but he’s also the guy who will place a Kick Me sign on your back when you’re not looking. Whether he’s talking about growing up Catholic, or impersonating RI’s own, Peter & Stewie Griffin, rest assured that Ace Aceto will bring 30 experience of comedy to your next event.
Ace has worked with such comic luminaries as Jim Gaffigan, Jeff Dunham, Jim Breuer, Brian Regan, Kevin Nealon, Jon Stewart, Dom Irerra, and Lewis Black (just to name a few). Ace has also opened for musical acts such as Huey Lewis & The News, Luther Vandross, and David Cassidy.
Ace continues to be an audience favorite, headlining since 1995 at such clubs as The Comedy Connection, Catch a Rising Star, The Comedy Factory, Joker’s Wild, and Newport Grand Casino. He is a member of Toastmasters and is currently developing several motivational programs. In 2016, Ace was inducted into the Rhode Island Comedy Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Charlie Hall, Frank O’Donnell, and Tom Cotter.
