Tony’s first television appearance was as a child on the show “Wonderama” where he lost at “Simon
Says”. Tony overcame this humiliating television debut and began performing in summer stock as a
After high school he won an acting scholarship to the world-renowned Dramatic Workshop. This led to
various Off-Broadway productions.
When he was 19, Sylvester Stallone hired Tony to be his stand-in for the film “Rocky 2”. At 20, Bob
Keeshan (more famously known as “Captain Kangaroo”) hired Tony to star in a television pilot for CBS.
For reasons still unknown to him to this day, he drifted into standup comedy. (Maybe it was all those
George Carlin records he listened to as a kid?) Soon people began to ask him to write jokes for them,
which eventually led to writing jobs with Jay Leno, Bill Maher, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon and Tina
Fey. He has dozens of television appearances under his belt, has won multiple Writer’s Guild awards for
comedy writing and was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on “Saturday Night Live”. Tony is
the rare comedian who can be both inoffensive and gut-busting funny.
