John Di Domenico started his professional acting career in Philadelphia, while maintaining copy writing positions with Philadelphia advertising agencies. John's gift for comedy got him noticed by the SKITZOID Comedy Troupe. Di Domenico was soon performing and touring nationally with the company, eventually becoming the head writer and artistic director. John performed for a year at Atlantic City’s Tropicana Hotel Casino where he had the opportunity to develop his stable of celebrity and original characters.
John has pursued acting in both New York City and Philadelphia. While working in New York City, Di Domenico became a member of "Some Assembly Required (S.A.R.)," one of the city’s finest improvisation companies. S.A.R. gave John the opportunity to hone his improvisational skills. Stand-up comedy was the perfect format for John's love of writing and performing. Di Domenico's semi-autobiographical act incorporated his parents, growing up Catholic, and many of John's impressions. John performed his stand-up comedy act at comedy clubs all over the East Coast, including Caroline’s and Catch A Rising Star. Di Domenico is very proud to have worked his way up from opening act to featured comedian and even headlining entertainer, on occasion.
