George "Georgie" Santorelli (played by Frank Santorelli) is a bartender at the Bada Bing. He was occasionally involved in the crime family's activities, including helping Christopher move the body of Emil Kolar, a Czech-American mobster Christopher had whacked in the pilot episode, and also swept the Bing for bugs following rumors of federal indictments. He was well liked by Silvio Dante, who owns the club.
Georgie lets Bada Bing strippers change from dancing on the poles to working in the VIP room, where they make at least $500, but charges them $50 and oral sex. This is seen in the season 3 episode "University".
While Georgie seems harmless, affable, and compliant, it appears as if he is somewhat slow mentally. Georgie's mental impediments would later make him the catalyst for many of Tony Soprano's sudden, violent outrages in a few different situations, as he had a tendency to exhibit excessive incompetence and spout inappropriate commentary at the worst times, which leads to Tony beating him with objects: Tony repeatedly hitting him over the head with the phone when he kept repeating "Hello?", the Big Mouth Billy Bass for being reminded of the death of Big Pussy, the ice tray for wasting ice, and the cash register drawer for when he says, "That's why ya gotta live for today" when Tony is discussing the potential mass murder that could be caused by further Al Qaeda attacks. In "University", Georgie is also hit in the eye by a chain while Ralph Cifaretto is emulating a scene from the 2000 film Gladiator. After Tony hits him repeatedly over the head with the cash drawer causing permanent ear damage, Georgie says he is quitting. However, it appears he is convinced to stay or return to work as Georgie can later be seen working back at the Bing in season 6.
