Born and raised in Luton, Bedfordshire, it was clear to see from an early age that Tony was meant to perform.


At the age of 12 he won a full scholarship to the prestigious Sylvia Young Theatre School. Tony has numerous television credits to his name, playing Frank Skinner's son in the ITV sitcom Shane and most well known for playing 'Matt' in the BBC3 comedy, Coming of Age.

Tony was also very fortunate to have played 'Gavroche' in the West End production of Les Miserables at the Palace Theatre. He even popped up in the 2012 feature film.


Tony is now focussing on his passion, singing. He has over 20 years of live performance experience. In 2014 he co-founded an original rock band, 'Exit Black'. Backed by BBC Introducing, they performed at many venues and festivals supporting the likes of PendulumPigeon Detectives and Toploader to name a few. Tony has also shared the stage with the likes of Tom Grennan and Myles Smith.

In 2001, Tony (aged 11) watched Robbie Williams singing swing songs live at The London Palladium and from then he was hooked. Two years later, Jamie Cullum released the album 'Twentysomething' and Tony fell in love with the genre even more. 

Now in 2024, Tony is back doing what he loves most. You can't book Sinatra or Buble, but you can book Tony Bignell! If you don't want just Swing/Rat Pack all evening, Tony also offers a Pop/Rock set, so can cater for pretty much any audience!
