Tony Vino has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005. A finalist in 2006 Funny Bones competition, Tony has enjoyed recognition as a comedian and notably 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.
Tony heads up the comedy at Greenbelt and is the resident compere and founder of Just Fair Laughs, a Fair Trade comedy agency which runs several weekly and monthly comedy nights across the north of England in venues ranging from pubs to nightclubs to football stadiums.
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. When hosting festivals and corporate events his confident effervescent persona has been found ideal for engaging crowds in their 100"s and 1000"s.
