Written & Performed by Anthony DeVito
Anthony DeVito - New York, NY
V.7 - The Cinematheque 
NYC comedian Anthony DeVito's father died when he was just a baby. Armed with only one photo of the two of them, Anthony created a loving, gentle and caring vision of his father - the proud new dad. His father was all of those things. He was also a made man in an organized crime family. My Dad isn't Danny DeVito is a solo show about Anthony finding out who his father was. At 18, Anthony's mom told him the truth about his dad. Ten years later, he learned she hadn't told him everything.

My Dad Isn’t Danny DeVito

Anthony DeVito—The Cinematheque

Weaving together stories of his personal and family dramas with stand-up comedy based on the wild situations in the lives he describes, New York comedian Anthony DeVito creates a very warm and welcoming environment for stories that might otherwise be too dark for comfort. Deeply touching on the images fathers leave behind in their absence, heavy topics and situations have their tension defused by well timed jokes and irreverent punchlines. For anyone who hasn’t read the show’s description in the program and thinks this show could be for them, I would highly recommend checking it out without researching further. There are aspects of his life story that, while useful to advertise a show in the competitive Fringe market, are better explored and discovered through the way the show carefully uncovers them.

My Dad Isn’t Danny DeVito

Anthony DeVito—The Cinematheque

This relatively short performer pretty well divulges if he is indeed the famous Danny Devito’s son? Or not! Anthony shares his life as a DeVito telling the stories of growing up in New Jersey…and a father he never met. It was many females bringing up Anthony, starting with his mom, grandmoms, and aunts, but he never really knew his dad, who he imagined in his mind. It is also his mother who he gives credit to inspiring his venture into the entertainment biz. Also, it was the stories of his dad, thru his mom, that showed he is really no where near following his dad’s footsteps. Beautiful stories sharing the Italian connection, the culture and lifestyle with some good ol’ New York accents/slang.
