Anthony Morgan is a true comedy pioneer and Token’s very first client.
Starting out in 1982, Anthony’s freewheeling style of often-improvised storytelling became the benchmark by which other comedians measured themselves. In the nineties he was an unlikely comedy superstar, selling out the Melbourne Town Hall off the back of his TV appearances.
Anthony is a consummate live performer and has received awards at both the Melbourne and Adelaide Fringe Festivals. He presented a show at every Melbourne Comedy Festival until in 1998 Anthony stunned the comedy industry and his management by announcing on stage in front of 2000 people that he was retiring and moving to Tassie.
Now Anthony is back! At least, intermittently. He has popped up on ABC series like Sam Simmons’ Problems (holding court in a lawn chair with Lawrence Mooney), as a professor in Ronny Chieng International Student and as Phil in the smash hit ABC series, Rosehaven, shot in Tasmania where Anthony still lives today.
