Tony is a properly old-fashioned comedian in the best possible sense. Invoking a gentler time of comedians telling jokes you could tell your grandparents, he's wholesome and very funny rapidfire gag merchant with an arsenal full of one-liners. For laughs-per-minute he's a tough act to beat.
His quick wit has made him a sought after act and compere by comedy clubs and promoters across the UK and even for gigs worldwide. Something of a Twitter sensation, Tony's jokes turn up in all sorts of places, from greetings cards to The Times newspaper, even if you've never heard of him there's a good chance that you'll have laughed at one of his gags.
