Brighton to host ‘An Evening with Michael Franzese – The Real Goodfella’

July 15 @ 18:00

Tickets are on sale now for “An Evening with Michael Franzese – The Real Goodfella”, at the Hilton Brighton Metropole on the 15th July. 

With a three-course gala dinner, audience Q&A and a series of VIP experiences available, sit comfortably as Michael Franzese shares untold stories as the first high-ranking official member of a major Mafia crime family to have walked away without protective custody and survived.

Once portrayed in the legendary film ‘Goodfellas’, Michael will take the Brighton audience on a journey: 

  • Growing up as the son of one of the era’s most famous Mob Underbosses
  • The deepest and darkest never-before-told secrets of a former ‘Caporegime’ (Captain) of the Colombo crime family who ran New York alongside four other family mobs across multiple decades.
  • Criminal operations, including defrauding the U.S government of over $350 million
  • High profile celebrity and political associations including Marilyn Monroe, the Kennedys, Michael Jackson, the Rat Pack and more
  • 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 mob to live a reformed life helping youth and vulnerable adults to avoid crime.
