Sal’s comedy paints pictures to audiences. He enjoys talking about his life, exposing the ignorance he grew up around and describing his Italian family well, actually Sicilian, lot of people don’t count that as Italian, as he expresses his opinions about race, politics, life, and anything else that should probably never be discussed over a bottle of whiskey.
