  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$1500 - $5000 per event
Tony Calabrese's comedy is best described as frustrated middle aged married fat guy
meets lazy ninja. His exuberant body language and facial expressions combined with
his over the top takes on life's events make him an audience favorite everywhere.
A native San Diegan, Tony Calabrese has been performing comedy since 1995,
specializing in corporate events and as a master of ceremonies and auctioneer for
charity benefits.

At 57, he has been married for 36 years, in a row, and has two grown sons and three
grandchildren. He talks about life, world events, marriage, kids, grandkids, the corporate
world, and the trials and tribulations of not staying in top physical condition.
Tony spent 36 years as a banker in San Diego and is the former President and CEO of
not one but two banks. That's right Bank President turned Comedian. His unique view
of the business world makes him the perfect entertainer for corporate events.
He performs regularly at The Comedy Store, The Comedy Palace, The Madhouse
Comedy Club and other San Diego and L.A. clubs and venues. Tony also teaches
standup comedy at the Point Loma Actors Studio and the National Comedy Theater. In
March of 2013 Tony won the “Ultimate Laff-Down” at Flappers Comedy Club, chosen
from a field of 160 comedians and in 2014 was a finalist in the World Series of Comedy
in Las Vegas.

Tony has been a host, emcee and auctioneer for charitable and corporate events in southern California for more than twenty years, and has raised millions of dollars for non-profit organizations around the country. As a former Bank President, he genuinely connects with corporate audiences, and his quick wit keeps audiences laughing and engaged as he maintains the structured flow of the event.

“I love interacting with audiences from all walks of life, and keeping up the tempo of the event so it's fun and interesting.”

Corporate Events and Meetings
It takes more than just reading names to be a corporate emcee. Tony's experience as a President and CEO of 2 banks and a non-profit agency means he has the perfect blend of understanding business protocol and entertainment.

Fundraising Events and Auctions
Tony's auctioneering career began in 1987 at the Annual Portuguese Festival in Point Loma when he was asked to 'step in' to give the auctioneer a 'break'. Tony ended up raising more than $175,000, and has been their auctioneer ever since. To date he has raised more than $5 million dollars for the Portuguese Festival, and millions more for the other organizations who heard about his resounding success. He is one of the best emcees and auctioneers in San Diego.

“My philosophy is simple. Keep them engaged and don't leave any money on the table.”
