Tony Woods

A D.C. Comic Friend & Legend.

Tony Woods makes his first appearance on a Laugh Your Grits Off flyer for his first appearance at a LYGO DC show.

Tony Woods¬†has the kind of resume comics work and dream years to earn: known internationally, he was¬†an original member of Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam on HBO and P. Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy,¬†Comedy Central Presents, Comedy Central USO Tour, and Comedy Central World Comedy Tour, Last Comic Standing, A&E‚Äôs Caroline‚Äôs Comedy Hour, Showtime at the Apollo, NBC‚Äôs Friday Night Videos, Just for Laughs, NYPD Blue, HACK, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, HBO Comedy Spot Australia’s – The Footy Show,¬†The Brooklyn Project, Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado, the Melbourne Comedy Festival and is a favorite at the Sydney Comedy Festival

On a personal note, he was the reason this author started performing as a stand-up. And that’s not by chance. ¬†Tony continues to support and perform in and around DC as a kind of home base… And DC loves him for it.

LYGO DC was proud to have Tony grace its stage at Bohemian Caverns on September 9, 2012 and looks forward to his return to our show. Head to his website to find out more — we highly recommend seeing him in a show (or around town) soon.
