About Tony

Tony has played single-dimensional gay guys on such hit TV shows as “Fashion House” with Bo Derek and Morgan Fairchild and “Two and a Half Men” with Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and that F’ing half-man…

Yes, he was also on “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” as well, but, it’s best not to bring that up…

Tony writes hilarious one-liners for Joan Rivers, which she uses in her act, on her reality show, and on “Fashion Police” at E!. He knows he should be troubled that all his jokes make sense coming out of the mouth of a 77 year old Jewish lady, but, screw it, she’s a goddamned legend.

Tony was also a staff writer on STYLE network’s hit show, “The Dish”, hosted by Danielle Fishel.

Continuing to dominate basic cable channels that you don’t even know you have, Tony appeared on LOGO’s “THE GOSSIP QUEENS” and “PRETTY HURTS”, and is a regular commentator on the TV GUIDE Channel, making inappropriate comments on such specials as “The 25 Sexiest Hollywood Couples” and “The 10 Funniest Commercials of the Year”.

You can also look forward to his outrageous remarks in an upcoming series of specials, airing this year on E!, and as a regular on season two of “Joan And Melissa : Joan Knows Best?”, on WEtv.

You should probably also subscribe to “The Comedy Couch with Dennis Hensley and Tony Tripoli”, free on iTunes. You’ll pee from laughing.
