Episode 086: When a divorced family is all you know with special guest Gianmarco Soresi
I found a real insight to children of divorce with Gianmarco Soresi. His parents divorced when he was one week old. He endured years of going back and forth between them. His Dad has various girlfriends while Gianmarco was growing up. He’d be kinda nice as kids warm up. On holidays and birthdays Gianmarco always got extra presents. His Mom remarried right after the divorce. As a matter of fact, she married his Dad’s lawyer. His stepfather was strict compared to his Dad who.had the party house. His parents set up a schedule for him throughout the years. There was always a place to be.
While attending college Gianmarco dated the same girl all four years with an an agreement that after graduation they would part ways. However they did still date and collaborated on writing a play together. The play was about relationships. Gianmarco wanted to perform it with her, but she moved on and married another guy. Gianmarco continues his dream and cast the play with someone else and his ex is having a baby. He’s performed the play and received rave reviews — and continues to do so.
Today Gianmarco does comedy and dates. He’s not too sure what the future holds for him. He is still skeptical of marriage. So many friends around him are getting divorced and have custody battles. As a child of divorce, Gianmarco doesn’t like when parents badmouth each other in front of their kids.
Gianmarco, be proud of your success on your play and best wishes as you continue with your comedy.
