Anthony Morgan is a true comedy pioneer.
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. Commuting across Bass Strait for ABC TV’s Randling and Sam Simmons’ Problems, you may have clocked him most recently giving Ronny Chieng a hard time as Professor Dale in the ABC TV/Comedy Central series Ronny Chieng: International Student and as Phil in Celia Pacquola and Luke McGregor’s smash hit ABC series Rosehaven.
