Dramacow Tony Gagardo / TonyTalk - 57-year-old east Boston stunad with a BTR show and a thin grasp on reality

  • Sorry about the recent downtime. The database server is being autistic. The beatings will continue.

Tony lost his voice and is feeling sick; Alfonso will be filling in for him tonight.


Update: Monday's show was an unmitigated disaster: Tony called in with the host PIN and kicked Alfonso off for being too sexual, there were technical issues with BTR which led to Sven being on the air by himself for ~10 minutes, and Tony ending the show early after calling his listeners "a bunch of malcontents."

Despite all that, Tony is doing a show tonight at 9 to apologize.

Of course the show is much more amusing when all the callers and chat participants are relentlessly, nonstop breaking Tony's balls, but I can see how it's tough for him to summon the willpower to keep doing the show when there are fewer and fewer "serious caller" characters. To that end, I think that Incel Energy relay streaming/archive guy is encouraging the people who tune into his relay stream to go easier on Uncle T for a while.

I started doing a podcast on YouTube called Inner Circle Radio with a few guys from TonyTalk and TCR, which at the moment is basically a TonyTalk wrap-up show where we also talk about other BTR shows and whatever's on our mind.

I really need to start listening to uncle tony again, looks like ive missed a lot.

On the subject of how the embarrassing East Boston anecdotes/stories of Tony get leaked to the wider troll community, I think that aside from Jaybo, Sully Sullivan may be a real Boston local. In the story about how Sully accused Tony of being a pedo trying to hit on the 15 yr old girl working at the local pizza joint, Tony supposedly recognized Sully in person as "the big Irish guy" next in line to him who was joking with the girl about Tony. Though Sully might be stealing credit for the portapotty story, similarly to how Jesco stole the credit for taking a dump in Tony's Toyota Avalon and putting tiny condoms on the windshield.

I hope Benjamin Buford Fontaine III resurrection arc will be soon in coming. He is too good to die.

We did a tribute show on ICR that evening for him. I tried to get a hold of Kent Hopper to do a eulogy but he wasn't online.

Update: The guy who called in as Joshua Higgins has passed away.

Sadly, he was only in his 30s.

I'm late as fuck to the party, this guy is endearing as all get out though. I'm going to be sweeping through the recordings whilst gaming and what not. I'm torn though, the trolling is hilarious and obviously he can stop at any time but it seems like he legit has nothing else to live for at this point and this is driving him to an early grave. Again, late to the party so I'm sure I missed plenty.

It is very surprising to me that he is resilient enough to keep coming back after all he has gone through in the past year in terms of his real life circumstances. Loss of job, deaths of friends/family, personal injury and health problems, etc.

I think he is strong enough to endure 95% of the typical character trolls and ball-breaking calls. It's the remaining 5% of calls that physically hurt him (high pitch ear-rape, disgusting gross-out callers that make him vomit, emotionally painful insults against recently deceased family/friends, etc) that may eventually do him in.

Fortunately, in recent months, the latter type of call has become very infrequent to the point that there is maybe one such call for every one or two broadcasts.

I wasn't lying, spent my day listening to various Tony casts whilst rising up as a gamer and christ almighty this dude is resilient. I listened to his losing his job broadcast and it was endearing as fuck. I can't wrap my head around his tendency for almost vomiting due to a caller but to each their own, I honestly want to have a beer with this weird fucker. My GF even got some serious laughs out of this dude and she's not about this life at all.

I showed my gf TonyTalk once and someone in the Discord (Longfeather, I think) said "Congrats, if she can handle TonyTalk, she's a keeper."

I think he has a good combination of characteristics and quirks for universal appeal to anyone amused by the internet prank call show format (eg TCR/Ghost, Jesus Chatline/spinoffs, etc).

-Naturally funny voice and mannerisms; the contrast between the voice and the constant bragging about side-hitting prowess is comedic gold on its own
-quick enough to realize when he's being fucked with, but slow enough that the majority of the joke/prank can play out on air
-trusting enough to engage with character callers at face value
-bad at recognizing impersonations and spliced audio of regular callers
-almost always gives both regular and one-off callers adequate time to play out their gag or joke; really the only thing he will cut short is any of Rico's egregious "deeksuq" tomfoolery, he often even lets ear-rapes play out longer than they really should
-constant real-life drama with both regular callers (jaybo, sully) and non-participants (bitch of a sister, girlfriend of the week, etc)
-cats constantly fucking with him in the background

The only disappointing thing I can say about the show as of late is the length of the episodes. Tony used to do 2 hour shows, now he's down to only doing an hour a week. Maybe there's something personal that's preventing him from setting more time aside to the show, I don't know.
