Tony Roberts

Tony Roberts

Originally from Detroit, comedian, actor, writer and (sometimes) director Tony T. Roberts has been blessed with the coveted honor of being the “comedians' comedian” -- the guy other performers love to watch work. His hilarious and refreshing energetic comedy style has earned him respect and created a huge demand for him on the comedy circuit, here in the states and abroad. Legendary comedian and sitcom director David Steinberg acclaimed Tony as “a breakout talent” after witnessing Tony’s stand-up act and casting him as the lead in a series of funny Burger King commercials he directed.

Tony has entertained audiences in some of the nation's hottest comedy arenas including: Caroline’s, The Boston Comedy Club in New York City; The Peppermint Lounge in New Jersey; All Jokes Aside in both Chicago and Detroit; and The Comedy Act Theater in Los Angeles, just to name a few. But Tony’s television debut was on HBO’s “DEF COMEDY JAM”, followed by, “IT’S SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO” and “BET’S COMICVIEW.” Early on, Tony received BET’s, ROBIN HARRIS AWARD, for Most Original Comic. He has also appeared on the sitcom "Mr. Box Office" and he's a regular on the Steve Harvey Morning Show.
