Comedian Anthony Locascio breaks free from the tropes of ‘wog comedy’ exploring his relationship with his Greek & Italian heritage through stories, sounds & songs.
He joined Bec and Jeziel to tell us more about his upcoming shows in Perth. So far Anthony has performed at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival and audiences are loving it. “It’s been absolutely fantastic. A lot of people have come to see the show which I am very surprised, very thrilled about.” His show ‘Don’t call me a wog‘, depicts how he doesn’t want to be defined by ethnic and cultural stereotypes. “All throughout my life and especially during my comedy career.”
It is not unusual for Anthony to use his hardships such as a breakup or quitting his corporate job, as comedy inspiration. “Turning it into comedy makes it easy to look back on those memories.” He is super excited about his upcoming shows in Perth after attending an open mic night run by local comedian Xavier Susai. “What a lovely experience. If last night is anything to go off I’m going to have the time of my life in Perth.”
You can watch him at the Regal Theatre Chorus Room this Friday and Saturday! Let us know your thoughts by texting or messaging us on socials. Listen to the full chat below!
