Tony Quinn can be best described as a renaissance entertainer. Tony’s innovative and unique style of musical comedy is memorable. He is one of the very few who can accomplish all that he does – alone on stage.
Experience: Tony has been in the entertainment business for over thirty years. From feature comedian at the National Radio Awards in Toronto to performing at the 33rd Annual Premiers Conference in Charlottetown, Tony easily adapts to the mood of the audience. For the last five years Tony has been playing a weekly musical comedy matinee to a packed to capacity crowd on the Halifax Waterfront. He was an MC and feature comedian at the Halifax Comedy Fest, and has been special guest of the Royal Canadian Air Farce. He has written and performed a broad variety of categories, from a witty character on Much Music to co-hosting Atlantic Airwaves on CBC Radio. Tony also has a new show geared towards the 50 plus “Zoomer” crowd called “The Golden Years Huh?” It’s a hilarious lighthearted look at life as a baby boomer. A former student of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Tony still indulges in several musical projects, as a singer, musician and producer. He is also in demand as a voice over specialist for a wide variety of radio and TV commercials.
The Golden Years Huh?
This show is a lighthearted, hilarious look at growing up, and growing older. The humour is based on real situations…raising kids, spouses, retirement, music of the various generations, changes with our bodies, minds and attitudes that come with the game of life as someone sees it in the Zoomer years. There is a mixture of stories, impersonations, songs, skits and improvisational humour (clean) dealing with topics like being in the middle of the “sandwich years”, sending kids off to college and moving mom in. If there is a message to attach to this presentation, it is that there are no Golden Years, just golden days, and we should make the best of every one.
