Santa Vinnie

"John Verrico is one of the funniest people I know. At a time when budgets were being slashed, staff were being laid off and morale was the lowest I'd ever seen, John concocted characters to lift spirits through hysterical antics as Santa's Cousin Vinnie and Vinnie da Bunny. John emceed many of our office holiday and going away parties as Vinnie and as himself, and it was always something we all eagerly looked forward to and enjoyed. He came in costume completely in character and people were literally falling off their chairs in laughter. No one has ever been able to motivate staff and entertain us the way he did."

- J. Y. Wheeler, Maryland Department of Natural Resources
