Tony Black was born on February 28th in Miami, Florida. His parents separated when he was 11 years old. Tony’s mother raised him as a single parent and he credits his sister and aunt for being positive role models. Though times were hard the family managed to find happiness in laughter. Tony credits his mother for his comedic attribute; she had a knack for imitating other relatives and friends. Tony discovered he was blessed with a gift for making people laugh at an early age while working his first job as a bag boy. He entertained his coworkers and customers throughout the day to make the day go by quicker. After being encouraged by several coworkers Tony decided to take his act to the stage where he was bitten by the comedy bug at an open mic night!
Tony didn’t set out to be a comedian. He pursued a career with the Orange County Corrections Department as a Correctional Officer in 1998, but his first love was still always comedy. Later that year, Tony really lost his mother after she lost her short battle with breast cancer. Tony's mom was his number one fan and he could always make her laugh even when she was sick. Realizing the healing power of laughter, he continued to spread laughs amongst family and friends and started rethinking his career choice!
Tony changed course and in 2007, at the urging of family and coworkers Tony entered an open mic contest at the Orlando Improv where he won his first open mic competition while gaining some recognition. In 2008, Tony was invited to open up for Comedian Shawty from Nick Cannons’ Wild-N-Out. He is continuing to hone his act by performing at several comedy clubs across the nation such as Bonkerz Comedy Club and The Improvs. In 2011, Tony entered the “So You Think You’re Funny” competition at the Orlando Improv & won!
Tony has shared the stage with some noticeable names in the comedy industry such as Michael Colyar, Charlie Murphy, Michael Blackson and Freez Luv just to name a few. Make sure to check your local comedy listings to see when Tony is performing at a comedy club, college campus, theater or casino near you! Don't miss this exciting comedian who is guaranteed to make you laugh and think!
