Tony Cowards - Comedy Biography
Tony is an award-winning, established act on the UK comedy circuit. His likable ‘everyman’ character and wide-ranging humour (mostly clean) means he’s able to play any crowd, from raucous late night comedy nights, to nervous, infrequent comedy-goers. As well as performing, Tony is also a prolific writer; his credits include BBC Radio’s comedy shows ‘The News Quiz’, ‘The Now Show’, ‘Ian D Montfort is: Unbelievable’ and ‘Newsjack’. He is also the principal gag writer for Bristol based commercial radio station Jack FM (for which he won a silver Sony Award in 2013). His Twitter account, chock-full of one-liners, has over 21000 followers. Tony regularly contributes to a wide variety of national newspapers and international websites. He supplies jokes for several greetings card manufacturers and his material has been used by major international brands such as Nestlé and Savanna Dry. So, even if you’ve never heard of him, the chances are you’ve already laughed at one of his jokes.
