Early Life

Anthony Anderson was born on August 15, 1970, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He grew up in Compton and attended Hollywood High School’s Performing Arts Magnet and Howard University.  Anderson’s first performance at stand-up comedy was a total failure. 

Hilariously, his first performance at The Comedy Act Theater was as “Tasty Tony, the One and Only, and if there’s another, he’s a phony.” According to him, this resulted in the audience taunting him off the stage before he could say anything.

Anderson persisted and met an actor named Guy Torry, who became his key collaborator during his early career. Despite the fact that most of his subsequent work has been in humor, Anderson has made it plain that he does not consider himself a comedian in the classic sense, but rather an actor who regularly works in comedy.
