A rising young talent, Deyo is known for his sharp, quick material and near perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. In 2007, he had the incredible opportunity to perform at the prestigious HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. In 2011, he was named one of the year’s best by the New York Post, and can be heard on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show.
Tony grew up in a small town in rural Virginia. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in education and master’s degree in music, he spent several years performing with various symphonies. He was also middle school teacher for three years before realizing that he had a strong distaste for children.
After moving to Austin, TX, Deyo discovered comedy. He began performing, influenced by the work of Jerry Seinfeld and Brian Regan. Deyo’s career has already come full circle, as he has since worked with Regan repeatedly.
Like his influences, Tony’s act is clean and suitable for nearly any audience.
