About Candice Guardino
“NYC’s rising funny girl,” writer, actress and storyteller Candice Guardino, is quickly making a name for herself in the entertainment industry with her creative brand of comedy and family humor that’s captivating audiences, through impersonating multi-dimensional characters she has created as well as her phenomenal singing voice. Candice was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in an Italian family that always spoke at full volume. She grew up singing, dancing, and performing weekly recitals for her family in the living room. As a child, Candice knew she either wanted to perform for a living, or marry John Stamos. After realizing “Full House” had been cancelled (and she got tired of watching the re-runs), she later enrolled into the Musical Theatre & Dance Department of Wagner College in Staten Island. After graduating with a BA in Musical Theatre, Candice moved to NYC to pursue her dream of working in “show biz.” She created Italian Bred for her love of comedy, theatre, and storytelling. Throughout her career of performing and originating roles on stage in the heart of Broadway, Candice has written screenplays, dramas, sketch comedies, and sitcoms.
