Anthony Scibelli is a stand-up comedian, writer and filmmaker currently based out of Boston.
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 special live shows of Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.
His self-titled web series, The Anthony Scibelli Web Series, which he wrote, directed and starred in, was an Official Selection for the Boston Comedy Festival, the Boston Film Gala and the SENE Film Festival, and it won “Best Web Series” at the LA Film Awards and an Award of Recognition from the IndieFEST Film Awards.
He is a writer on the monthly live alt-trivia show The Old School Game Show and appears every month as the bandleader/sidekick for the live talk show “So That Happened!”
He writes articles and sketches for Cracked.com, Splitsider.com and UnSceneComedy.com. His writing has been featured in the Boston Globe and the Boston Compass.
He was once retweeted by the Monkees.
