Armando Anto

Armando Anto was born and raised in France. He began studying classical violin at the French National Conservatory at the age of 5. After earning his BA in Finance, he turned his virtuoso talent into a business, embarking on a world tour of violin concerts. Performing and teaching his art for over a decade, Armando began implementing more and more comedy in his performances. Armando believes that in order to be successful, you have to surround yourself with successful people. This explains all the mirrors in his home.

He understood that laughing opens the heart and mind, and that people understand any concept better through humor. Following his twin muses, music and comedy, he has established himself as a standup comedian in Los Angeles. Armando feels he never spends enough time with himself.

For the last 10 years, Armando has been perfecting his unique style of comedy, utilizing his decades of classical violin mastery, his guitar skills, and even breakdance in his act. Discovered in Hollywood, he won first place in his very first stand up comedy competition. He now performs all over the US in various comedy clubs, colleges, competitions and theaters. Even when Armando brags, he is the best at bragging.

Armando Anto’s brand of comedy is widely accessible and works anywhere in the world. From New York to Texas, France to the Middle East, every audience understands the universal comedic language of music.
