Jamaican born & half-bred, Tony’s comedy has a Caribbean flavour, an international perspective and is universally funny. He’s Jamaica’s greatest export since Ganja but he makes you laugh much more.
After being voted Best Jamaican Comedian 1999 and 2000 Tony decided to export his unique brand of Jamaican bananas to England. He currently lives in London and works all over the UK thrilling audiences at all the big UK clubs, as well as too many universities and theatres to mention. His work on radio has won him a Race In Media Award as co-host of “I Love Carnival” on BBC Radio London but he still prefers to work in front of a live audience. Even in the UK Tony still plays a whole heap of Caribbean and Black shows at a range of venues including the world famous Hackney Empire, Broadway Theatre Catford, Harrow Arts Centre, the NIA Birmingham, Drum Birmingham, Dancehouse Manchester and Kuumba Bristol. When he played for the Jamaica Society Manchester, a Bishop asked if he could use some of Tony’s material in his sermon that Sunday and at The Jamaica Basic Schools Charity Ball at the Hilton Metropole London the Jamaican High Commissioner refused to leave until she had enjoyed his performance.
Tony also works in the USA, Europe, Arabia, Africa and the Caribbean at festivals and corporate functions. He is Jamaica’s comedy ambassador and can be seen on Air Jamaica’s in flight TV show Island Stylee.
