Hello! I'm Anthony Desamito. I'm a stand up comedian, actor and writer living in Los Angeles, California. I've been joke-making on stages across the country for 8 years now.
I have appeared on the Comedy Dynamics' film OUT On Stage: The Movie in theaters across the nation, FOX's "Laughs (HULU)" and I am the Winner of the 1st Annual AZ's Funniest Person With a Day Job. I have been heard on the Doug Stanhope Podcast & Mortified. I was nominated for a Channel 101 Channy for Best Male Supporting Role for my work in the webseries, "Treefeelers." I will be premiering on Pluto TV & Buzzfeed this winter.
I have performed at festivals such as: Asheville Comedy Festival • Portland Queer Comedy Festival • LA Pride • Bisbee Pride • Bird City Comedy Festival • Altercation Comedy Festival • Big Pine Comedy Festival (Best of Fest) • San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival (Best of SLOCase) + more!
I co-host a comedy show at the Hollywood Improv called, "Ya Feel?!" and "Big Dick Energy" in San Diego at Project Bar & Grill. I am a Finalist in both the 2016 Scriptapalooza TV Sitcom Writing Competition and Arizona's Funniest Comedian. I have been featured on Out Magazine, The Advocate, Inverse, Voyage LA and was mentioned in the Daily Beast as one of today's comics who "should be a household name."
I co-host "Thank You for Being a Podcast: The Golden Girls Podcast," in which we recap episodes of the Golden Girls which has garnished over 80k downloads and has been featured on NPR, PopSugar.com and Phoenix New Times.
I trained in longform improv at The Torch Theatre, I once put on a puppet show for David Arquette and I tour as the feature act for Daniel Franzese from Mean Girls.
