Antonello Fassari (born 4 October 1952) is an Italian actor and comedian.
Life and career
Born in Rome, until the age of 18 years Fassari practiced gymnastics at a competitive level. In the mid-1970s he attended the Silvio D'Amico National Academy of Dramatic Art and then, from 1977, the Teatro Laboratorio directed by Luca Ronconi, with whom he later worked in numerous stage plays. Occasionally a singer-songwriter, in 1984 he composed one of the first Italian rap songs, "Roma di notte".
After several roles on stage, television and in films, his breakout came in 1991 with the Rai Tre variety show Avanzi. In 2000 he made his directorial debut with the comedy film Il segreto del Giaguaro, which was a resounding flop at the box office.
