Tony Tripoli Gets Seriously Schooled by Joan Rivers

Tony Tripoli Gets Seriously Schooled by Joan Rivers

Tony Tripoli is a hilarious gay comedian. He talks about TV, lesbians, Joan Rivers, Kathy Griffin, gay cruises, coming out, dating, and musicals. (Warning: you’re going to be Googling images of Charlie’s Angels.) Tony knew he was gay at age 4 and came out of the closet at 18. From breakups over breath mints to jealousy and stolen passwords, Tony has been through some serious heartbreak. After 9 long years, he’s back in the dating pool and letting himself love again. It’s all gay banter all the time!

Tony Tripoli spent 4 incredible years as a regular opening act for JOAN RIVERS, and his hilarious stand-up can be seen all around the U.S., and on gay cruises.

For over 4 years Tony was Head Writer/Senior Producer on E!‘s hit show, “FASHION POLICE.” He was also a Producer/Cast Member on “JOAN AND MELISSA: Joan Knows Best” on WEtv, as well as the online phenomenon, “IN BED WITH JOAN.” Previously, He was the only male writer on STYLE’S first scripted comedy, “The Dish”. (“The Soup” for gals and gays…He was in heaven.)

Tony played the Indian from the Village People on an episode of “Frank TV”, which he considers his most offensive race-related joke EVER. He also appears as a talking head on clip shows like “50 Super Epic TV Moments”, “TV Guide’s 25 Sexiest Couples”, “TV Guide’s 25 Most Hilarious Commercials”, and others that you have seen playing with the sound off in mid-level nails salons across the country. Before that, Tony appeared on BRAVO’s EMMY WINNING hit show, “Kathy Griffin: my life on the D-list”, as Kathy’s main gay; a role he beat out half of West Hollywood to get.

Tony grew up in Phoenix, Arizona; and while he wouldn’t relive a single minute of his childhood for any amount of money, it will always be home…He began singing at the age of two, and toured the U.S. and Taiwan with the Phoenix Boys’ Choir. He moved to Los Angeles in 1989, attended the acclaimed American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and upon graduation, put his degree to great use by moving to Japan to play Prince Charming in parades at Tokyo Disneyland. Tony has sung on NBC’s “Must-See TV”, worked as a Chippendale dancer, and, in a real moment of pride, sang Cole Porter songs for the American Plumber’s Association, on stage with a dozen toilets.

From 2001 to 2005, he owned the Studio City location of MY GYM Children’s Fitness Centers, teaching gymnastics to kids from 3 months to 12 years of age. In 2005, he sold the business and went into comedy, thereby beginning his quest to become “THE GAY OPRAH.”

Mary Carey: Love Addict, Not Sex Addict

Mary Carey: Love Addict, Not Sex Addict

Adult Film Mega-Star and this generations voice for girl power, Mary Carey has had an illustrious life.  A rough childhood brought her to the edge but that little voice inside had other plans for her.  Listen to her story of redemption, porn mega stardom, a run for California Governor, self-doubt, holding on and letting go.

Cleveland native Mary Carey was born into what could be charitably called a dysfunctional family. Both of her parents were mentally handicapped (her mother had been diagnosed as a schizophrenic) and she was taken away from her parents by her grandparents when she was three months old. After her parents divorced, her mother moved in with Mary and her grandparents. At seven years of age the family moved from Cleveland to Florida, and the next year Mary was legally adopted by her grandparents.

Mary continued in Florida with the dance lessons she had started taking in Cleveland, and was a straight-A student in school. Her stage debut occurred at 12 years of age when she performed “The Nutcracker” with the Miami City Ballet, and she was bitten hard by the performing bug. Her dancing skills were honed by attendance at a prestigious dance school, and she was being offered dance scholarships from many different institutions. Then, at age 16, her grandfather developed lung cancer and died within a few months. Her grandmother’s Parkinson’s Disease worsened, and on top of that her body began to develop and she no longer had the thin body considered desirable for a ballerina. She was told to lose weight and get a breast reduction, but instead decided to leave ballet altogether and tried out for and won a place on the dance team at Florida State University, where she was enrolled. In the meantime her grandmother’s health deteriorated even further, and soon their financial situation became precarious. In order to keep their head above water, Mary looked around for a job that could pay the kind of money they needed, and found a job as a model on an adult Internet site. From there, she landed a job as a stripper. She saw that the strippers who commanded the big money were the featured girls, and an agent told her that the best way to become a featured stripper was to get a following doing porn. She traveled to Los Angeles and made the rounds of the adult-film producers and studios, eventually landing a job with Playboy TV.

Just prior to the recall campaign against California Governor Gray Davis, Mary signed a contract with Kick Ass Pictures, and as a publicity gag they came up with the idea that Mary should enter the field of a dozen or so candidates trying to replace Davis, so she soon publicly declared her intention to run for governor. The stunt worked out far better than they had hoped for, as Mary’s bubbly personality and sense of humor about herself, her profession and the campaign itself – not to mention her beauty – endeared her to the California public. Although some political pundits wrote her off as a joke, her “campaign” received extensive coverage in the statewide media and she drew enthusiastic crowds at her appearances. Although she didn’t win the election, she did manage to garner more than 11,000 votes. After the election Mary continued to turn out videos, which continue to sell well, and she is, besides Jenna Jameson, one of the porn stars most recognized by the general public.
