Anthony Solimini, known as The Stand-Up Banker, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and spent 25 years living and working in Asia where he started performing stand-up comedy in 2009 at The TakeOut Comedy Club owned, and managed, by Jami Gong.
Being the youngest of four, with three older sisters and an Italian grandmother he had no choice but to enter the world of comedy! This, coupled with his travels around the world has given him a lot of material!
From his first open mic, comedy became a passion, and he has since performed in Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Philippines, Australia, USA, and Macau and opened for some of the biggest comedians from around the world.
He’s shared the stage with some of the best comedians from around the world:
Tom Cotter, Ted Alexandro, Butch Bradley, Paul Ogata, Pablo Francisco, Brad Upton, Dwayne Perkins, Kermit Apio, Ruben Paul, Dennis Regan, John Maloney Gina Yashere, Chad Daniels Tom Segura, Pete Lee, Al Ducharme, Bernadette Pauley, Amy Anderson, Butch Bradley, Wali Collins, and Imaan Hadchiti to name a few!
He was also featured in the movie “I Need You to Kill” with Tom Segura.
And in 2018 he fulfilled a lifelong dream and got inducted as a member of New York’s famous Friars Club!
He was a finalist in the JokeNation by Montreau Comedy.
\He now resides in Phoenix, Arizona where he produces and hosts the monthly Ha Ha Tukee Comedy Show featuring some of the best comedians in Arizona!
