A real Goodfella is coming to Hull



Once dubbed the Mafia Prince, Michael Franzese is coming to Hull and will exclusively share a series of
anecdotes before he opens the floor to enthralling questions about some untold truths.

Thursday, 12th May 2022, HULL: Mandala Ventures, an independent film, and events production and
IP creation studio headquartered in London Founded by Kaz Evans and Teji Mudhar, has announced
the launch of “An Evening with Michael Franzese – The Real Goodfella.”

Hull will host a coveted show at DoubleTree by Hilton (HU2 8NH) on the 23 July 2022

The event will include a VIP reception and soiree, a three-course gala dinner, a series of VIP experiences
ranging from meet and greets with Michael Franzese to being seated at his VIP table, an exclusive
after-show party, and an on-stage ‘in conversation with’ style interaction with Michael Franzese.

Michael will take the Hull audience on a journey, from life growing up as the son of one of the era’s
most famous Mob Underbosses to some of the deepest and darkest never-before-told secrets of a
former ‘Caporegime’ (Captain) of the revered Colombo crime family who ran New York alongside four
other family mobs across multiple decades. Michael Franzese will bare all on criminal operations, high
profile celebrity and political associations, run-ins with law enforcement, his imprisonment, finding faith
in God, and the threats he faced on his life once he broke his oath of silence (Omerta) and walked
away from the Colombo family to live a reformed life.

As he prepares to open the door to his past for the people of Hull, Michael Franzese says:

“I’m really excited to be landing in Hull and to share a unique experience with everyone as we unearth some of the untold truths of the Mafia.

“There are not many people who can say they’ve sat on both sides of the divide between the Mafia
and the law and lived to tell the tale. It was like a rite of passage for me to become part of the criminal
underworld, or as we called it, ‘the family business. The truth is, I was good at it.”

At the height of his mob life, Michael Franzese defrauded the U.S Federal Government of upwards of
$35 million with a gasoline bootlegging scheme, making him one of the most powerful men in the city
and a prime target for law enforcement.

In 1986, Vanity Fair named Michael one of the biggest money earners the mob had seen since Al
Capone, with Fortune Magazine listing him at number 18 on the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful
Mafia Bosses” list, just five behind the infamous mob boss John Gotti. Joseph Bono even briefly
portrayed him in the famous Martin Scorsese film Goodfellas. But in 1995, following several years in
prison on racketeering charges, Michael’s life changed.

Guided by a newfound faith in God, he took the unprecedented decision to publicly step away from
the mob and denounce a life of ‘evil’ and ‘destruction’. What would follow would be several contacts
In his life as the Mob, he once served sought after his death. Advised by the FBI that his story could
inspire troubled youth and individuals to make the right life choices, today Michael Franzese is a
a renowned motivational speaker who works closely with troubled and vulnerable youth around the
world, connecting with them and sharing his story to help steer them away from a life of organised
crime and violence.

“But I’ve seen the destruction caused by ‘the life’. The pain, suffering, loss it leaves in its wake. I’ve seen families devastated, and wars on the streets. I’ve been marched into a room, expecting never to
walk back out. But now, I’m ready to share my story with people and give an insight into what that life
really means – and why I simply had to get out.”
