ABOUT TONY COHEN

I’m a comedy writer / director based in NYC and a graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU with a BFA in Film and Television.  I’ve also trained at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater and the Annoyance Theater for both sketch and improv and have done sketch and improv at the UCB, The Magnet, The PIT, The Del Close Marathon, The Annoyance Brooklyn, Toronto’s Big City Improv Festival and all over New York City.

 

I’ve worked with brands such as but not limited to TV Land, Zantac, Liberty Mutual and General Auto Insurance. My comedic work has appeared in the Huffington Post, Vulture, Funny or Die, Collegehumor, Whohaha and Laff.com. Outside of my filmmaking, my writing background consists of writing comedy screenplays and TV pilots. My screenplays have placed in the Nicholl Fellowship, The Tracking B TV Pilot contest, Scriptapalooza TV contest and the Austin Film Festival.

 

What else?  I love coffee and doughnuts, I’ve been frightened many times by raccoons and I’ve been told repeatedly that my eating habits will result in an early death. Want more? Reach out to me and we can have a chat.
