When you think Tony Roberts, don’t think just of the lantern-jawed motivational speaker. Think of Tony Roberts, the Detroit-born comedian who’s lighting up your TV screens with Bill Bellamy on “Mr. Box Office” and heading out on the Shaq All-Star Comedy Tour.
His DVD standup special “I’m Different” is available via Redbox and Netflix now. You can also find Tony on Sirius XM’s “The Foxxhole” show with Jamie Foxx. If you’d prefer to check him out in person along with comedy stalwarts like Gary Owen, you can do so during NBA All-Star Weekend this weekend in Houston, Texas. The Shaq comedians head to Dallas’ Verizon Theater at Grand Prairie on Valentine’s Day, then on to Houston for four shows February 15 and 16 in Houston at the Houston Arena Theater.
