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.

 

My video 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? Check out my Twitter and Tumblr for some comedic writing and my YouTube page for more of my directing work.
