Mario Cantone returns in the role of wedding planner extraordinaire, "Anthony Marentino," in the highly anticipated release of the Sex and the City 2.

"In the realm of outrageously joyful stand-up, there is the shrieking, windup-toy sensibility of Mario Cantone, a comedian of extravagant tantrums and extravagant gifts...he is a proponent of the comedy of outrage." ~ Peter Marks, New York Times

The celebrated New York stage actor and stand-up comedian, Mario Cantone gained critical acclaim with his Tony-nominated one-man show Laugh Whore, from its appearance at the Cort Theatre on Broadway to the Showtime special. The previous theatre season saw Cantone starring in the Tony-winning Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman. Four-time Tony-winner Joe Mantello directed both hit shows.

An accomplished stage actor, Cantone has appeared on Broadway in the role of "Buzz" in Terrence McNally's award-winning dramatic comedy, Love! Valor! Compassion! and "Stephano" in Shakespeare's The Tempest at the Public Theater. Off Broadway, Cantone was the original "Terry" in The Crumple Zone, played "Benny" in June Moon and "Grumio" in the Shakespeare in the Park production of The Taming of the Shrew.

He starred in the June release of Sony's animated film, Surf's Up and appeared in the hilarious film The Aristocrats. On television, Cantone can currently be seen as Anthony Marentino, Charlotte's wedding-planner-with-attitude, now that HBO's Sex And The Cityis in syndication on TBS, and he is also a frequent guest on The View. On Comedy Central, Cantone's performances have been featured on The USO Comedy Tour, The Dave Chappelle Show, and Premium Blend as well as his own special, Comedy Central Presents: Mario Cantone.

Cantone has performed his irreverent stand-up comedy at a wide range of venues, including Carnegie Hall, where he warmed up jazz great Shirley Bassey, to performances at Atlantic City "Resorts" and Caroline's on Broadway. Over the years his routines have included musical parodies of Judy Garland, Jim Morrison, Peggy Lee, Bruce Springsteenand 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 Rosie O'Donnell Show, and NBC's Ed. The actor was also featured in the films Quiz Show and Mousetrap. Cantone's other film credits include Crooked Lines (Cannes 2003) and Last Request.

Fernando Ventura and Greg Sherrell have been perking up morning commuters in the Bay Area after the best friends moved to San Francisco from Dallas four years ago to form Fernando and Greg in the Morning. The highly energetic pair form the only openly gay morning show on commercial radio; capturing high praise in the Bay Area and nationwide being named the top of their class by OUT Magazine, SF Weekly and San Francisco Magazine. The duo has been so successful, they have been approached by a Production Company to develop a cable reality show. You can hear Fernando and Greg every morning at MOViN 99.7 Monday-Friday 6AM-10AM and online. Check out the sideshow, but beware: This isn't for adults only!
