The Godfather of Comedy Tony Calabrese comes to Comedy Heights at Bay Bridge Brewing Friday night.

A native San Diegan, Tony Calabrese has been performing comedy since 1995, specializing in corporate events and as a master of ceremonies and auctioneer for charity benefits. At 64, he has been married for 43 years, in a row, and has two grown sons and three grandchildren. He talks about life, world events, marriage, kids, grandkids, the corporate world, and the trials and tribulations of not staying in top physical condition. Tony spent 36 years as a banker in San Diego and is the former President and CEO of not one but two banks. That’s right Bank President turned Comedian. His unique view of the business world makes him the perfect entertainer for corporate events.

Tony also teaches standup comedy at the Point Loma Actors Studio and the National Comedy Theater. Tony won the “Ultimate Laff-Down” at Flappers Comedy Club and is a two time finalist in the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas.  His DryBar Comedy Special was released earlier this year and can be seen on
