Anthony: I think I love stand-up because the reaction is immediate. There's no director. There's no writer. No producer. There's just you. You just get out there and vent. I don't know why people think I'm funny. But I'm glad they do. I don't want to have a real job. I just want to hang out.
Anthony: I use the contrast between my city and country life backgrounds as the basis of my comic portrayals. I allow the audience to find the humor in themselves and their idiosyncrasies, without talking down to them.
