Life and career

Dibitetto was born on February 9, 1961 in Brooklyn, New York. He is of Italian descent. He started doing stand-up in 1981 at Pips Comedy Club, which was located in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

In 1991, Dibitetto made his first television appearance on America's Funniest People with his son, Michael, and was the $10,000 Grand Prize Winner for their home video of a mock ventriloquist act.

In February 2013, in response to the February 2013 nor'easter, Dibitetto created a YouTube video entitled "Bread and Milk", which received over 16 million views. The video has since then been shown on The View, CNN, The Today Show, and local weather channels. Dibitetto has claimed that this video, along with his internet following, is what eventually got him his stardom in show business, stating that "thirty seconds of stupidity brought [him] more recognition than thirty years of stand-up."

The following year, Dibitetto received a phone call from Kevin James, who had personally asked him to appear in a minor role in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015). James had told Dibitetto that he was so impressed by his YouTube videos that he created the "Mall Cop" character, Gino Chizetti, based on Tony Gaga, a recurring character in Dibitetto's videos.

Along with his "Bread and Milk" video, other notable videos that went viral created by Dibitetto include a rant about not wanting to "Drive To Florida"; a reaction to Justin Bieber's 2014 arrest; an encounter with a creepy clown that was seen walking around Staten Island, New York; and a rant about Kanye West's behavior on the 2015 Grammy Awards. Dibitetto also has a mini-web series on his YouTube channel entitled "The Shed". The series takes place in his backyard and involves the construction of a shed that Dibitetto bought from Sam's Club, and the adventures that follow it after the shed is finished being built.

Prior to achieving notoriety with his internet videos and tri-state stand-up tour, Dibitetto worked as a school bus driver for Pioneer Transportation in Staten Island, New York. However, he has since then quit his bus driver job and became a stand-up comedian as a full-time occupation.

Throughout Dibitetto's previous and recent stand-up tours, he has been selling out nearly every venue where he has made an appearance. He has performed at several notable venues such as Gotham Comedy Club, The Paramount Theatre, The Borgata, Governor's Comedy Club, Mohegan Sun, Parx Casino, Las Vegas' Riviera Hotel and Casino, Los Angeles' Laugh Factory, and the 3000-seat NYCB Theatre at Westbury.

On April 7, 2015, Dibitetto appeared alongside Monica Reinagel on The Dr. Oz Show for a segment that discussed the nutrition of having milk within the average diet.

In 2016, Dibitetto is set to star in his second feature role, a comedy/fantasy "Abnormal Attraction" produced by Fuzz on the Lens Productions.

Personal life

Dibitetto resides in Manalapan Township, New Jersey. He is a fan of The Beatles, KISS, Freddie Mercury, The New York Yankees, and the New York Giants. While growing up, his comedic idols were Red Skelton, The Three Stooges, Abbott & Costello, Richard Jeni, and George Carlin. His current goal for his career is to perform his stand-up act on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Dibitetto's son, Michael, had announced that he came out as gay.
