How it all started
Anthony Rodia is one of the hottest up-and-coming standup comedians in comedy. His comedy is refreshingly genuine, quick witted and TOTALLY RELATABLE!
A first-generation Italian American from New York, hit social media rankings with his infamous characters Uncle Vinny and Zia Lucia during the pandemic lockdowns. With the onset of quarantine, Anthony captivated his audience delivering a staggering 86 weekly videos. "Road Rage Wednesday" was the fans favorite! Which led Anthony to his incredibly successful ROAD RAGE TOUR in 2021.
Anthony tried a few open mics in his twenties, but ultimately took a different career path as a finance manager of a luxury car dealership.
In 2019, Rodia wanted to take his comedy to another level and live out his true passion, he decided to leave his day job to become a full-time stand-up comedian. He performed 100 shows in just nine months and within 3 years Anthony has gained a massive loyal fan base.
A lot of people asked questions like, “Will Zia Lucia and Uncle Vinny be at the show?”, "Do I have to be Italian to relate to your jokes?" But all we can say is Radia’s comedy will leave with stomach pains and tears in your eyes from laughter.
In 2021, Anthony launched Rodia Wines, which include a Zia Lucia's White Blend and Uncle Vinny's Red Blend. Rodia Wines are available in local retail stores and at Rodiawines.com
Rodia also host the weekly podcast, Little Bit of Laughs on Podcast On alongside his co-host and radio legend Goumba Johnny. Join Anthony and Goumba on Tuesday nights at 8pm Eastern on Facebook Live, as they get into hot topics, rants, pranks, and listener's questions and stories.
Anthony has appeared on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, FOX's Good Day New York, and Elizabeth & Elisa on News 12, he quietly claimed the throne of "King of Off the Boat Comedy."
Rodia is currently selling out comedy clubs and theaters across the country out on his Totally Relatable Tour.
