Mario Cantone's one-man variety show "Laugh Whore" opened to a flurry of rave reviews, and took its final Broadway bows with a special taping for the Showtime network.

Just prior to that, Cantone starred on Broadway in "The Violet Hour," and left 'em dead in the aisles starring in the Tony Award winning "Assassins," by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman. This critically acclaimed, award-winning production was directed by Joe Mantello, who helmed Cantone's "Laugh Whore." Mario is also recognized as Anthony Marintino, Charlotte's wedding planner with attitude on "Sex and the City" and the "Sex and the City" feature film. He will also be seen in the "Sex and the City" movie sequel, planned for release in 2010. An accomplished stage actor, his Broadway debut was replacing Nathan Lane in the role of Buzz in Terrence McNally's Tony Award winning dramatic comedy, "Love! Valour! Compassion!" For The Public Theater on Broadway, Cantone played Stephano in Shakespeare's "The Tempest." Off Broadway in Shakespeare in the Park, he played Grumio in "Taming of the Shrew." Also Off Broadway he was Terry, in the original cast of "The Crumple Zone," and Benny in "June Moon." As a stand-up comedian he has performed at a wide range of venues, from warming up the great Shirley Bassey at Carnegie Hall to performances in Atlantic City, headlining at the Borgata, and at Carolines on Broadway. On Comedy Central, Cantone's performances are featured on "The USO Comedy Tour," "Chappelle's Show," "Premium Blend," "The Roast of Denis Leary" and "The Roast of Joan Rivers," as well as his own special, "Comedy Central Presents: Mario Cantone." Over the years his routines have included musical parodies of Judy Garland, Jim Morrison, Peggy Lee, Bruce Springsteen and Liza Minnelli. Cantone got his start hosting the local New York children's show "Steampipe Alley," where the comic slipped in sly pop culture innuendo that adults could enjoy. His other television credits include appearances on "Late Night with David Letterman," "Oprah," "Martha," "The View," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," "Men in Trees" and two films for the Lifetime Network: "Killer Hair" and "Hostile Makeover." He was also featured in the films "Quiz Show," "Mousetrap" and "Surf's Up." In addition to the "Sex and the City" sequel, Mario recently completed work on the upcoming film "Dirty Movie."
