David Pasquesi

Tony the Knife Man
 

David Pasquesi met Amy back in Chicago about 30 years ago, since that time he’s tried to get to be a part of this show (a show which was not yet known to Amy). To while away the years until now, David worked at the Second City, Remains, Steppenwolf, Goodman and other Chicago theaters. He’s half of TJ and Dave, the improvisational duo. He’s been on the TV in Strangers with Candy, Veep, Lodge 49 and other shows. He’s done some films too..most importantly, Strangers with Candy. He’s thrilled to be in close proximity to Ms Sedaris: arms-length, striking distance.
