Tony Slattery

Tony is an actor, comedian and singer and is most well known for performance as a regular on the UK improvisational comedy version of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" for 7 seasons. Anthony is the youngest of 5 children in his family, which includes 1-sister and triplet brothers. After he completed High School at Gunnersbury Boy's Grammar School in West London, England he then won a scholarship to study medieval and modern languages at Cambridge University in England where he studied Spanish Poetry and French Literature.

He met Stephen Fry who was an aspiring young actor and whom invited him to join the renowned Cambridge Footlights comedy group and drama club, commonly referred to simply as the Footlights. The club was founded in 1883 as an amateur theatrical club in Cambridge, England that is run by the students of Cambridge University and now also the Anglia Ruskin University formerly known as the Anglia Polytechnic University. The Footlights won the first ever Perrier Comedy award at the Edinburgh Festival in 1981 for their production of "The Cellar Tapes". In 1982 Tony became the President of Footlights

Tony spent the early years of his career performing in local London clubs and pubs. He would also make guest appearances on UK TV shows and in 1982 he wrote and played several different characters in a made for TV version of the Footlights show titled the Cambridge Footlights Revue. His biggest break came in 1986 when he performed in the West End musical of “Me and My Girl”. He would go on to star in plays like "Radio Times", "Privates On Parade" and “Neville’s Island” which won him a Olivier award nomination for his performance.
