"LOL Take 2"

LOL Take 2 is a monthly comedy podcast now in its second year that chronicles the humorous side of growing up as a creative kid in the Midwest.

Each episode is about 10 minutes long and can be subscribed to via iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play, RSS Feed, or wherever you consume your podcasts.

Reviews from the first year's episodes:

“Tony can spin a yarn better than Garrison Keillor.”

“Just perfect.”

“You’re gonna love them. Hilarious and so wrong...”

“These podcasts are absolutely brilliant! Lot of smiles while listening!”

“Great way to start my day. Your stories are so relatable.”

“Wonderful as usual...I'll forever have the picture of a "young Tony" as a Price Is Right model etched into my mind”

"Laughing is always better than crying."

Bio

about

Tony has acted onstage, in films, in dozens of commercials and on network television in his over three-decade hyphenated career in Hollywood.

As writer, he wrote, produced and scored the short film, "13 Heads of Hair," which had its sold out premiere at the Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films, as well as the feature film, "Scattering Mother," which starred Richard Klein and Elliott Reid.

He wrote the book, music & lyrics for two comedy revues, "Brooding White Breads" (co-wrote book), and "Lost & Found & Hollywood Bound," which had runs in Los Angeles.

His song catalog numbers over 100 and he writes, voices and composed the theme song of the acclaimed comedy podcast, "LOL Take 2," now in its second year.

Don't postpone joy.
