Detroit-born Tony Roberts got his start as a stand-up performer in 1992 when a friend bet him $50 that he wouldn't get on stage at an open mic night. Roberts took the bet, winning the money and finding his calling as a comedian in the process. After performing at legendary clubs like the Boston Comedy Club and the Peppermint Lounge, Roberts made his TV debut with an acclaimed routine on Def Comedy Jam. Appearances on Showtime at the Apollo and BET's Comic View soon followed, earning him a reputation as one of the comedy circuit's brightest rising talents. In 2012 Roberts delivered another hilarious performance on Russell Simmons Brings the Ruckus, where he shared the stage with fellow comedians like J.B. Smoove and Tony Rock. With his electric energy and impeccable timing, Roberts continues to crack up audiences every time he takes the stage.
