Tony was the winner of the prestigious City Life comedian of the year, came runner up in So You Think Your Funny and was nominated for best stand up and writer at the North West comedy awards. He is also a founder member of the topical MEN at work team at the Comedy Store in Manchester, one of the regular comperes at the long established Frog and Bucket Comedy club and has supported household names including Jenny Eclair and Johnny Vegas on National Theatre tours.

He wrote on the first two series of cult BBC 3 sitcom Ideal, co-wrote a Radio4 comedy, The Nightclass, with Johnny Vegas “first rate acting….great characterisation and clever writing….”, and penned his own seven part BBC sitcom The Visit, which played to much acclaim on both BBC3 and BBC1.
