    “On a daily basis I’d see a dozen characters (and I emphasize the word characters).  One moment, I’d be fighting for my life.  The next minute I’d be laughing hysterically.  There’s a lot of drama in the city and I took it all in.”
     
    Tony has been performing for years and he has gained a reputation as a young star in the making.  The Hollywood Reporter recently picked him as one of the hot young talents to come out of New York. 
     
    Tony just finished shooting the film “Three Can Play That Game” with Vivica Fox in Atlanta and recently wrapped his fourth season of “All of Us” on the CW, playing the role of Dirk Black.  He starred in the films “Life Support” with Queen Latifah, and “Homie Spumoni” with Whoopi Goldberg and Joey Fatone.  He is currently featured on the TV screen as the host of TV One’s “The Funny Spot”.

    "Don't sit in the front row!" ...unless you want to have the time of your life! For me, comedy isn't just a show, it's an EXPERIENCE.  My gonzo riffs create one-of-a-kind shows where you might wind up most of the night's material.

    You know those TV shows where they show various TV and Youtube clips and then comedians bag on ‘em? I’ve been on most of those. 3 seasons on “World’s Dumbest…” on TruTV, 2 seasons on VH1’s “The Greatest” (ya know like, 40 Greatest this or that) and random clip shows for MTV, E!, TLC, TV Guide Network (yep, there is one) and a bunch of others I can’t even remember. Stand-up I’ve done on Showtime, “Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen” and “ComedyTV”. I’ve also done some decent acting on shows like “Modern Family”, “Kickin’ It” and “Bones”. But my best work was as an arms dealer on the JJ Abrams flop "Undercovers". I call it a flop because it was episode twelve and the series got cancelled at episode 11. But you can see it on my Youtube channel if ya want.
