Tony Vino

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 a pro comedian for over seven years, touring both nationally and internationally. A finalist in the 2006 Funny Bones competition, Tony has enjoyed recognition as a comedian and comedy compere of renown. Tony 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 annual conferences for companies such as ASDA, Co-op and Kingston Communications. He is also a well sought after act for high profile fundraising events for charities as Christian Aid, Oxfam, Fairtrade Foundation and Tearfund.

He was also the official warm-up comedian for BBC Songs of Praise (tough crowd). You can hear him regularly as a weekend comedy pundit on BBC Radio Manchester.
