MEET OUR MARTIAN
Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Amadeo currently performs on the Upright Citizens Brigade Maude House Sketch Comedy team Hot Bird.
In 2013, he won the legendary Friars Club “So You Think You Can Roast?” competition beating out 55 other comedians, roasting 80s child star Ricky Schroeder, and NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman in the process. As the winner, Amadeo was among the dais to roast comedic actor Jack Black, along with comic legends such as the “Roastmaster” General Jeff Ross, Sarah Silverman, Artie Lange, Bob Saget, Amy Schumer and more. Amadeo’s success at the roast landed him two quotes in Entertainment Weekly’s funniest jokes of the event.
In addition to his comedy, Amadeo also can be seen in various television and film productions. His wide range of dramatic and comedic roles include a co-starring role in the final episode of the HBO hit series Boardwalk Empire, a co-starring role in the season finale of the Netflix series Marvel’s Daredevil, a co-starring role in the CBS show As The World Turns and a supporting role in the feature film A New York Heartbeat, starring Eric Roberts and Rachel Brosnahan.
His influences in film and comedy include Robert Deniro, Paul Newman, Steve Martin, Don Rickles and Sebastian Maniscalco. Amadeo strives to be the most versatile performer he can possibly be and thanks his family for their everlasting encouragement throughout his journey.
Amedeo currently lives in New York City.
