Mario Cantone Biography

Mario Cantone is an American comedian, writer, actor, and singer with numerous appearances on Comedy Central including Chappelle's Show. He also played Anthony Marentino on Sex and the City.

For the Public Theater on Broadway, Canone played Stephano in Shakespeare's "The Tempest." Off-Broadway in Shakespeare in the Park, he played Grumio in "Taming of the Shrew."
