Hello! I'm Anthony Desamito. I'm a stand up comedian and writer living in Los Angeles, California. I've been joke-making on stages across the country for 7 years now. Thank you for visiting my website!
I have appeared on FOX's "Laughs," The Doug Stanhope Podcast and just filmed for a new stand-up series for Comedy Dynamics and Dekkoo. I am the Winner of the 1st Annual AZ's Funniest Person With a Day Job.
My comedy festival resume include: Hell Yes Fest • Bird City Comedy Festival • Altercation Comedy Festival • World Series of Comedy • Scruffy City Comedy Festival • Ventura Comedy Festival • Laugh Riot Grrrl. I was voted Best of Fest at the Big Pine Comedy Festival and Best of SLOCase at the San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival.
I co-host a comedy show at the Hollywood Improv called, "Ya Feel?!" A show where comedians spin a wheel of feelings and have to perform their sets using the randomly selected emotion. I am a Finalist in both the 2016 Scriptapalooza TV Sitcom Writing Competition and Arizona's Funniest Comedian. My comedia has also been featured on Inverse and on The Advocate.
I co-host "Thank You for Being a Podcast: The Golden Girls Podcast," a podcast in which we recap episodes of the Golden Girls and has been featured on NPR, PopSugar.com's 11 Nostalgic TV Recap Podcasts You'll Be Obsessed With and Phoenix New Times' 10 Metro Phoenix Podcasts You Have to Hear.
I trained in longform improv at The Torch Theatre and I once put on a puppet show for David Arquette (for reals)! Come watch a show, follow me, book me or let me write for you!
