Zack Chapaloni’s first performance was a solo rendition of “I’ve Been Workin' on the Railroad” in the 3rd grade. He killed. And though there wasn’t a dry eye nor dry pair of pants in the house, Zack craved something more. Nine years later, he performed impressions of teachers at his High School Pasta Dinner. Again, the crowd was completely drenched in liquid remnants of overwhelming astonishment (some say it was the pasta). Three years later, he tried stand up. I’ll give you one guess; Friggin’ obliterated. Then he left home to grow weed with his father... turned out Zack wasn’t great at everything. So he returned to San Francisco to pursue stand up and to go to college so his mom would stop crying.
A west coast comic with an east coast sensibility, he credits comedians like Chris Rock, Patrice O'Neal and Roseanne Barr for their influence on his work. His style is raw and grating but relatable, like a sandblaster, or your first divorce. His ability to pull humor out of everyday life and its stumbling blocks makes for an uproarious evening of laughter and cutting loose.
Anthony K. is a versatile, headlining entertainer, writer and podcaster whose appeal spans racial and gender lines, captivating young and old alike. His exciting interplay with the audience keeps it fresh and makes every show unique.
