Since starting stand-up in September 2008, Tony has quickly established himself as one of the brightest up-and-coming comperes on the circuit. Whether he is MCing, or performing a set, Tonys' quick fire imagination and cheeky Geordie personality make him an ideal addition to a bill. Tony has received bookings and paid work to perform sets and MC at clubs such as The Stand, Frog & Bucket, Highlight, XS Malarkey, Big Night Out, Hilarity Bites, Ten Feet Tall, Kill for a Seat, Last Laugh Sheffield, including various other independent clubs across the country. Tony is predominantly booked as a compere, however he is also comfortable doing sets including opening 20s and closing smaller rooms. Based in Newcastle, he has also set up his own chain of Laughing Penguin comedy venues, where he is the resident compere. In addition to stand up, Tony is also a regular contributor to BBC Radio 5 Live. He is also due to record a sitcom pilot in July 2011, and has been booked to perform at various music festivals.
