WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

John "Gemini" Lombardi was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.  With his quick sense of humor and witty personality, Gemini decided to start performing at the young age of eleven. He took his act to streets of New York City, where his only audience was a crowd of passersby and neighbors. With his energetic charisma and quick wit, he brought the crowd to tears of laughter. It was then he began his professional career in comedy.
