Born Anthony C. Baker in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Tony and his family quickly moved back to Chicago where he was raised on the south side. His comedic skills developed while hosting pageants, talent shows, and fund-raising events in college. His love for theatre developed when he made his stage debut in a university production of “Of Mice & Men,” in which he received his first acting award. After bringing his acting talents to the stage, he knew that it was time to make the dream a reality and uprooted his family to California to pursue a career in acting and stand-up comedy. Most recently, Tony was selected to showcase at NACA Nationals as one of the six selected finalists in the NBC Diversity Stand UP Search. You can catch Tony Baker at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, or on a stage in a city near you.
