Out comedian Mario Cantone, who gets gay-married in his recurring role as Anthony Marantino in the upcoming Sex and the City 2 movie, cracked up the ladies on The View Christmas Eve with his right-on impersonations of Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The Italian-American humorist, who turned 50 this month but doesn’t look a day over 49, is not only a stand-up comedian but a successful writer and actor. Mario not only does guest appearances on The View, he regularly narrates campy reviews of awards shows on the program, much to our delight.
Born in Stoneham Massachesetts December 9, 1959, Mario Cantone is also a favorite guest of Opie and Anthony, a nationally syndicated radio show where his signature song “Getcha Balls Out” describes his personality to a T. You may recognize Mario’s distinctive voice on commercials as he currently narrates several popular advertisements, including Sunsilk and Hairapy.
