According to his website: “Tony Deyo is a comedian known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. New York City’s Village Voice calls him “one of the tightest joke writers in the business.
In 2013, he made his late night television debut on Conan.
Within a year, he had added appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen.
His latest album, “Comedy Road Trip,” landed on the Billboard Magazine comedy charts, and debuted as the #1 selling stand-up album on iTunes.
He performed at the prestigious HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, was named one of the year’s best by the New York Post, and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Mahoney performs internationally and resides in Buffalo.
According to his website: “On one of his countless visits to the principal’s office, in his youth, Dan was asked, ‘Mr. Mahoney, you’re back here again? Do you think you’re some kind of comedian?’ He now lives each day to answer that question with a resounding, ‘YES’!
“Dan Mahoney is a great comedian and an average actor. His unique observation of life – which is
rarely physical, always hysterical – has earned him industry acclaim and a loyal following. He earned the status of regional finalist of Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight, semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival and Finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival NYC Showcase.
“Dan has survived drinking, dating, corporate life and cancer. He discusses these life experiences on stage, through his unique brand of steady-paced, deliberate observations. Remarkably, Dan does this all in English.”
The Fulton Lions Club, also know for its Lions Loot Sweepstakes and Charby’s Duck Derby, provides financial assistance for those in need of eyeglasses, eye exams and hearing aids to residents in the Greater Fulton area.
