About Anthony Solimini

Originally from Boston, I have lived and worked overseas since 1989! London, Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong! I have constantly looked for new ways to communicate more effectively and be more successful! Through books, training and stand up comedy I have become pretty good! Keep laughing!

My Italian grandmother thought food could cure anything.

One time I said, "Grandma, meatballs cannot cure cancer."

She said, "Of course not, that's what sausage and peppers are for! Sei stupido!"

Well, crossing things off your bucket list sometimes calls for crazy decisions! I will fly to New York for 72 hours to attend my induction into The Friars Club!

This year they also elected Bette Midler, William Baldwin and Fran Drescher as members and they are invited to the dinner and ceremony! If I get to meet Bette Midler, I can tick off another thing from my bucket list!

And I will also see my amazing sister, Karen Rose Solimini as well as my cousins from New York, James Nawoichyk and Marie Bauer! They’re both Yankees fans, but, well l, they can’t be perfect! I still love them!

I will be in town form the 10th to the 13th September staying at The Carvi Hotel just a five minute walk to The Friars Club.

Will be free the 11th if anyone is in the city!

Keep laughing, people!

I love living in Hong Kong! My friends always ask me “Was it a culture shock moving from the USA to Hong Kong?”

Not really! They actually have a lot in common. Both are economic and financial hubs; both have a large English speaking population! And. And. Both kicked out the British!

Keep laughing, people!

Last week, Uber launched UberKittens! You can call and have a kitten delivered to play with for an hour!

Next week they launch it in China! But it will be called Uber Eats!

I’m here all week folks!!! Stop by and say hello!!!

Very excited! Tomorrow, 28th July at The TakeOut Comedy Club on 34 Elgin Street I will be sharing the stage with some amazing comedians! Jim Brewsky (Winner of the 2014 Hong Kong Comedy Competition), Mo Sidik, Papi Zak and Mahesh Mansigani!

I will also have a journalist from the Hong Kong Economic Times in the audience who’s doing research for an article about me as the “Stand Up Banker”!

And the best part? Comedy Central Asia will be filming the entire evening for their show! Message me for tickets!

And Keep Laughing!!!

Facebook friends! First let me say, I’m alright! But last night was scary! I am still shaking, to say the least!

At approximately 8.48PM, at dinner, I did the unimaginable! Sure, I had a few glasses of wine! Perhaps I shouldn’t have!

I was discussing a potential boys weekend to the USA with my wife Julie Lynne Carmichael! Things were going well! It was civilised!

And then, it happened! As she was discussing the pros and cons of such a trip, my mouth spews out “Honey, I’m going to do whatever the hell I want”

As soon as the world’s left my mouth, I knew I could never take them back! They were out there! Lingering! She sat there. Still! Not even blinking! Looking me directly in the eyes!

If I don’t post in the next 48 hours, please send help!

In the Bible, the punishment of gluttony is to be in Hell and force fed rats, toads and snakes!

I don’t know. I’ve been in Asia so long, that it doesn’t sound that bad! As long as there’s enough soy sauce, why not!
