Zac Amico is definitely making a name for himself as of late, especially in the comedy community. Zac had been doing comedy around six years, which by most standards is not long at all. But with the popularity of Roasting coming to New York, Zac is a force to be reckoned with.
I had become familiar with Zac Amico through a podcast I listen to regularly, The Real Ass Podcast. Real Ass Podcast is a weekly show Luis J Gomez had started and quickly brought in Zac and fellow comedian Chris Scopo. Recently Luis added another comedian Kris Tinkle to the roster. Since creating the setting of comedians sitting around throwing jabs at one another, it had become incredibly clear that Zac had a true natural talent. Luis has been hosting a show at The Stand called Roastmasters, which is a regular show at The Stand where two comedians go head to head in a Roast competition. Similar to the famous Comedy Central Roasts but this is strictly head to head. This original Roasting show in the city is backed by the Roastmaster General himself, Jeff Ross.
