Meet Anthony (Tony) Bottagaro

Anthony (Tony) Bottagaro is a bestselling author, an entertaining and provocative speaker, and an engaging performer with his one-man show. Tony’s humorous and inspirational character portrayals of Mario the Peddler addresses many issues of interest today: accountability, responsibility, ethics, and social injustice (to name a few).


Mario the Peddler, a one-man show

If you are tired of the same old approach and are looking for something original, look no further than a Mario the Peddler show.

Mario the Peddler is a live 60-minute show based on the gutsy and humorous main character from The Poet, The Count, and The Peddler. The inspirational stage play that was written and is performed by Tony Bottagaro is filled with heartwarming stories with messages that both delight and challenge the audience. The memorable stage production provides a unique and innovative fundraising event for nonprofit organizations and an inspiring and motivational opportunity for associations, businesses, corporations, and colleges and universities.


Entertaining and Motivational Speaker

Tony also does an enjoyable and inspiration-filled customized version of Mario the Peddler to fit the requested length of the presentation for conferences, meetings, seminars, and corporate retreats. Tony appears with his bag of trinkets with his character portrayal of Mario, a New York City street peddler, humorist, and philosopher extraordinaire. In smaller venues, Tony often fields unrehearsed questions from the audience while in character. This interaction often sparks lively conversations that delight the audience.
