About Tony

Tony Vicich is the owner and an instructor at Tony teaches various classes at JP’s Comedy Club.

Tony started his stand up comedy career in Los Angeles in 1985. Tony Vicich had been a national touring stand up comic for over 19 years. Prior to stand up comedy, Tony was a scholarship student at the world famous Lee Strasberg Institute. His television credits include EVENING AT THE IMPROV, SHOWTIME, MTV, COMEDY CENTRAL, FOX, and TNN.

In the mid-nineties he created and produced the television show TNN’S COMEDY ROUND UP. He has written for some of the top comics in the country, including Jay Leno, Bill Hicks, Ritch Shydner, and Craig Shoemaker.

Tony owned his own comedy club and talent booking agency for many years.  Tony is an expert in the field of one person shows, having directed Ritch Shydner’s THE ADVENTURES OF CANYON MAN and was the creative consultant on Craig Shoemaker’s sold out one man show WHOSE YOUR DADDY.

Tony’s workshops have taken people all the way from a Free Intro Class to national television. Former students and alumni have appeared on Last Comic Standing, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Bring The Funny, episodic television, and commercials. His alumni also excel in the field of dramatic acting- most notably- Josh McDermitt. For several years, he has portrayed Eugene on AMC’s The Walking Dead.

When asked what makes him different from most stand up comedy teachers, Tony said, “I guess the fact that I learned how to teach what I know how to do. A lot of people know how to do something, but don’t know how to teach it. Like when my Dad taught me how to drive. He knew how to do it, but I don’t think he knew how to teach it! That probably explains all of my accidents and speeding tickets! I just hope I can help people avoid the car wrecks that come with learning our craft.”
