Tony is hilarious and offers a unique perspective as a homeless person in Los Angeles before it was a social issue on most people's minds. The jokes are well written and the fearless style Tony adds to it imbues an opportunity to laugh at dark matters while maintaining heart and never throwing punches at anyone but himself.... full review

Tony is both hilarious and relatable. His ability to make the audience laugh while also making them feel like his closest friends is remarkable. I will be watching Tony's career like a hawk, because he is going to blow up in this city.... full review

Tony shares the realities of homelessness in LA with no sugarcoating, his lived experience giving the audience some no-bullshit insight into the city around us from beginning to end--and manages to be really funny while doing so. See this intelligently crafted show if you can!... full review

The perfect Hollywood Fringe show! Tony has this city in his bones and it shows up on stage. Whether he's talking about downtown, the subway, or the open mics, this show is a love letter to the Los Angeles that doesn't get a lot of love. Considering how hard his life has been, his show is blast. It's hilarious, it's sweet, and it's one of a kind. ... full review
ANDREW YANKER certified reviewer June 22, 2023
This was an insightful uplifting show that makes you count your lucky stars and think a lot about what we have to be grateful for in our society. Tony took us on a journey of what it was like to be homeless in Los Angeles and it's a story that has to be told considering the rapid rise in homelessness post pandemic. He was unabashedly himself, a romantic, a droll standup comic, but also a survivor and a fighter who despite all the tragedy in his life, has kept his sense of humor, warmth and shown his true resilience. ... full review
