He has an amazing gift of bringing laughter to the masses during a time when people need to laugh. I couldn’t be more proud to welcome him to the Transform family.”

Labriola’s first CD release in more than 6 years, Heart Improvement will feature comedy bits about everyday life experiences, including heart attacks, what it was like going to church before he became a believer, and growing up in an Italian family.
