Tony Lawrence
Stevens Point
Biography:

Tony has always been a quick wit; a skill he attributes to his teenage hobby of watching two hours of M*A*S*H daily. He forged his comedic ability and confidence in front of most unforgiving crowd known to God or man – junior high school kids. He can still be found supplementing his comic income in the classroom. His comedic style is a sardonic worldview mixed with a razor sharp wit that results in gut-hurting laughs. Tony believes that it is essential to point out the absurdity of daily life, to poke fun at the hours of quiet desperation so that one may make it through each day. His material ranges from PG-13 to R depending upon the crowd.
