Celebrated New York stage actor and stand-up comedian Mario Cantone returns to Café Carlyle, October 22 – 26. He gained critical acclaim with his Tony-nominated one-man show Laugh Whore, from its appearance at the Cort Theatre on Broadway to the Showtime special. The previous theatre season saw Cantone starring in the Tony-winning Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman. Both hit shows were directed by four-time Tony-winner Joe Mantello. An accomplished stage actor, Cantone has appeared on Broadway in the role of “Buzz” in Terrence McNally's award-winning dramatic comedy, Love! Valor! Compassion! and “Stephano” in Shakespeare's The Tempest at the Public Theater. Mario Cantone starred in the 2007 release of Sony's animated film, Surf's Up, and appeared in the hilarious film The Aristocrats. On television, Cantone can currently be seen as “Anthony,” Charlotte's wedding-planner-with-attitude, now that HBO’s Sex and the City is in syndication on TBS, E! and many other stations, as well as the Sex and the City movie franchise.
