Anthony Scibelli is a stand-up comedian, writer, and award winning filmmaker.
He began writing and performing comedy while he was a student at Brandeis University, and since then, his disarming style, clever joke writing, and unique worldview have made him a powerful new voice in comedy. Combining strings of one-liners, sharp observational material, and idiosyncratic story-telling, Anthony charms audiences with his dry wit and healthy sense of the absurd. His material examines topics as varied as life, death, video games, sex, rock ‘n’ roll, and video games.
He has been featured in the Boston Comedy Festival and the Women In Comedy Festival, and appeared in special live shows of Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.
His self-titled web series, The Anthony Scibelli Web Series, has been featured in film festival across the country, including the Boston Comedy Festival, the Boston Film Gala, the SENE Film Festival, the LA Film Awards and the IndieFEST Film Awards. His short film Dino-Warriors!, a mockumentary celebrating a fictional ’90s cartoon show of the same name, was nominated for Best Mockumentary at the KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival.
He has written articles and sketches for Cracked.com, Splitsider.com, and UnSceneComedy.com.
He was once retweeted by the Monkees.
