Tony V's Funny Friends

Event Description


Tony V

Tony V started his stand-up comedy career in 1982 after attending several shows at Boston’s prestigious Comedy Connection. He wandered in one night, quite by accident, looking for a little stress relief from a high pressure job as a case worker at the Somerville Mental Health Center. It was not long after that he took to the stage himself. Tony’s street wise humor tempered with a genuine feel for the human condition quickly propelled him to headliner status on the national comedy club circuit.

In 1986 Tony V was named “Funniest Person in Massachusetts” by Showtime television. He followed this achievement with several performances on HBO, the Arts and Entertainment Network, Comedy Central and MTV. From 1987 through 1992 Tony V became the “spokesperson” for American Tourister Luggage. Spending time in New York and L. A. paid off with multiple highly acclaimed appearances on Late Night w/ Conan O’Brien, Comedy Central’s Tough Crowd w/ Colin Quinn and several sit-coms including Seinfeld, Boston Common, The Single Guy and Dr. Katz Professional Therapist. Tony’s big screen outings include State and Main, Celtic Pride, Housesitter, One Crazy Summer and Shakes the Clown as well as the independently produced By the Sea and Abracadabra. Along with being a popular headliner at clubs and colleges all over the free world, Tony V has worked with Jay Leno, Dennis Miller, Bobcat Goldthwait, Steven Wright, Adam Sandler and countless other friends and nationally known acts. Tony has opened for Kenny Rogers, The Temptations, Billy Ray Cyrus, The Beach Boys and Joan Jett.

Brad Mastrangelo

For a guy from Chelsea MA who wanted to play short stop for the Red Sox, and never had any intention of being a stand-up comedian, things have turned out pretty well! Brad has always been funny and years ago his friends dared him to do an open mic night. For his biography, well, the rest as they say, is history…

Brad won a comedy competition his second time on stage! He was offered money to do stand-up comedy (no Bitcoins back then), the Bridgewater State College grad thought “this might be interesting.” See Mom and Dad, my communications degree paid off!

Boston is a stand-up comedy mecca producing some of the best comedians. After starting as an opening act, Brad quickly moved up to middle or feature act. His act was so high energy and funny that after only two years, he was headlining at all of the big comedy clubs in Boston, New England and coast to coast including:

  • Catch A Rising Star -New York City
  • The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store – Los Angeles
  • The Comedy & Magic Club – Los Angeles
  • Bally’s, Riviera and Tropicana – Las Vegas
  • Comedy Central
  • XM Satellite Radio

He has shared the stage with Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Kevin James, Dave Chappelle and Bill Burr. He was also a contributing writer for Jay Leno’s monologue for “The Tonight Show.” He as appeared at “Comics Come Home” the longest running benefit in the nation with Dennis Leary.
