Later on in his career, while studying in the Harvey Lembeck Comedy Workshop, Tony was introduced to the world of stand-up comedy. He started MCing at the world-famous Improv in Los Angeles after being taken under the wings of co-owners Budd Friedman and Mark Lonow. Since then, he has made many television appearances as a stand-up comedian, including Comedy Central’s “Make Me Laugh”, A&E’S’s “An Evening at the Improv”, VH1’s “Stand-up Spotlight” and the “MTV Half-Hour Comedy Hour”.

Tony has also appeared on some of the highest rated shows on television, including “House M.D.”. “Mad About You”, “Seinfeld”, “Family Matters” and “Roseanne”. He also was a series regular on the CBS dramatic series “Top of the Hill” with William Katt.

In 2007, Tony wrote produced and starred in a one-man show called “Burner: Tales from the Playa” as his playa identity, “OhTony”. “Burner” is OhTony’s deeply personal account of survival and enlightenment gleaned from the beautiful insanity that is Burning Man.
