Stereotypes are: dumb, a gateway to crippling imposter syndrome and a bit bloody Aussie.
Anthony Locascio spent his early life trapped in a prison of stereotypes. In Don’t Call Me A Wog he tells the story of his escape, his complex connection to his Greek and Italian roots and his love-hate relationship with ‘wog comedy’.
Join Anthony on an audio-visual exploration of one of Australia’s foremost ethnic slurs or badges of ethnic honour, and whether you should call him one... (don’t). Anthony Locascio is one of Australian comedy’s rising stars. Blending sharp joke writing with musings on his ethnic background, he has become known for his unique storytelling style. Anthony is a two time NSW RAW Comedy State Finalist (2018 & 2019), and has had two sold out runs at the Sydney Comedy Festival – Unaccounted in 2019, a show that festival artistic director Jorge Menidis described as “extremely impressive” and Confirmation in 2021, which sold out its run at the Perth Comedy Festival in 2021 that was cancelled due to a COVID outbreak.
He has also sold out the Sydney Comedy Store with back to back shows Mr Perfect (2019) and Confirmation (2020), and performed as part of the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala 2021 at Enmore Theatre.
