Who’s That Guy?… A great night of family friendly stand up comedy as we welcome “Preston’s very own funnyman the talented Tony Vino” (**** The Scotsman) to our first ever Winter Tales Comedy Club.
Tony is the only half Spanish half Scottish hybrid working comic in the world. Born in Malaga he was subsequently raised in the Costa Del Preston, Lancashire. When he was only a toddler his Father looked around saw the sea, the sand and the sunshine of the Andalucian coast and thought “we need to be nearer Wigan Pier”.
He has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005 performing across the UK and internationally. Tony has enjoyed recognition as a comedian and comedy compere of renown and he is best known for the way he seamlessly mixes well thought out observational humour with audience interaction and quick witted responses. His life and interests are wide ranging, and so is his material, all performed in a warm, friendly and non-offensive style.
Well aware of social and political issues Tony has been called upon to entertain at many high profile events for charities such as Christian Aid, Oxfam, Fairtrade Foundation and TearFund. He’s also been the tour support act for TV acts such as Jimmy Cricket and Tim Vine, performed for TV & Radio and was even called upon to be the warm up comedian for BBC’s Songs of Praise (tough crowd!).
“Comedy that’s life affirming.” BBC1 Heaven & Earth. (Guidance : Tony’s show is suitable for all ages 10 and upwards)
Supporting Tony this evening will be comedian Fran Garrity. Fran has most recently featured in the BBC Radio 4 New Comedy Awards and BBC Radio Newcastle's Jesting About - "real and one of kind perspectives on everyday life whilst struggling to do the right thing...nothing short of genius". Probably the only Fraud Investigating comedian on the circuit!
