We are very happy to have Tony Woods back since last time he was at Club Haug as opening act for Louis CK. He returns with his own show and brings special guest James Altucher!
Tony Woods is a one-of-a-kind comedic legend that is always in control of his audience. His playful and cool demeanor, mixed with his sharp and sometimes mischievous routines, create a show entertaining at every level. A seasoned veteran in the comedy business, Tony is recognized not only by fans but by his peers as well as one of the best and most engaging comedians to get behind a microphone. His endless list of credits include a Comedy Central 1/2 hour special, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, P. Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy, Showtime at the Apollo, BET’s Comic View, and the USO tour. Tony was recently featured on the Funny or Die Oddball Comedy Tour. He has also featured in NY Times and This Week at The Comedy Cellar on Comedy Central.
On Sunday, when Dave Chappelle accepted the Mark Twain Prize, the most prestigious honor in comedy, the first person in the star-packed audience (Jon Stewart, Tiffany Haddish, Sarah Silverman) he singled out in his speech was Tony Woods, a stand-up whom few outside comedy circles had heard of.
Comparing his influence to that of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie on Miles Davis, Chappelle spoke directly to Woods: “I was trying to play like you,” he said. “You were the first person I ever saw do it absolutely right.”
