Massimo Ceccherini (born 23 May 1965) is an Italian actor, film director and comedian.


The son of a plasterer, he seemed destined for the same profession, but his father was attracted to the world of entertainment. Ceccherini made his first television appearance in the program La Corrida and for years pursued a musical career with his friend Alessandro Paci. He became known to television viewers in the cabaret show Videomusic, Aria Fresca, conducted by a young Carlo Conti.
In the meantime he got his first part in a film, Welcome to Home Gori directed by Alessandro Benvenuti, with whom the following year he would also act in the film Zitti e Mosca.
In 1994, alongside Paolo Villaggio, Ceccherini appeared in Cari fottutissimi amici, directed by Mario Monicelli. Popular success, however, came with the collaboration with his friend Leonardo Pieraccioni, participating in almost all his films.
