Tommy Pistol (born July 2, 1976) is the stage name of American adult film actor and director Aramis Sartorio. He is known for his porn parody work, most notably as the lead actor in Evil Head, Pee-Wee's XXX Adventure: A Porn Parody, Taxi Driver: A XXX Parody, and Suicide Squad: An Axel Braun Parody.


Pistol started his career in Queens, New York, as a stage actor with sketch comedy group Cheese Theater, with whom he acted for more than a decade.[2] He also appeared in several short and feature films.[2] Pistol was also once a singer for the metalcore band AmoreA.[citation needed]

He entered the pornography business in late 2005,[2] after meeting with Joanna Angel, founder of the alt-porn company Burning Angel; this led to Pistol becoming the first male performer on[citation needed] Angel was also responsible for choosing the moniker Tommy Pistol, after nixing A-Mac, Pistol's original name idea. Credited under his given name, Pistol wrote, directed, and portrayed the title role in the 2010 independent horror-comedy film The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol;[2] he also performed as DJ Tommy Pistol on the film's soundtrack. Pistol continued to direct, and in 2013, he directed the feature horror-porn Beyond Fucked: A Zombie Odyssey. In 2014, Pistol won AVN's Best Actor Award for his role as Ash Williams in Burning Angel's Evil Head, the porn parody of the Evil Dead franchise. Pistol went on to star as The Joker in Axel Braun's Suicide Squad: An Axel Braun Parody, and other lead roles, including his 2018 AVN Best Actor Win for Ingenue.

In 2015, Pistol became the first male performer in twenty years to host the annual AVN Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, alongside Alexis Texas.[3]

Pistol has made several appearances under his given name in independent films, including Bethany, Jurassic City, and the lead role in Frankie in Blunderland. Since 2016, he has participated in the annual WIH Massive Blood Drive PSA, a collaboration between the international grassroots initiative Women in Horror Month and Twisted Twin Productions.

Pistol enjoyed mainstream recognition when his minor role as "The Cook" in Brazzers' Tatas Under Siege: An XXX Parody went viral on Twitter. Pistol has also been featured on BuzzFeed, Uproxx, and most recently,,[4] after a tweet mocking Donald Trump was liked by Trump's daughter, Ivanka.

In September 2022, Canadian horror directors the Soska Sisters announced the premiere of their new film On the Edge, co-starring Pistol, to take place at the London FrightFest Halloween festival on October 29. The film was shot and produced in Canada and also co-stars Jen Soska, Sylvia Soska and Mackenzie Gray. The festival synopsis of the film reads, "Family man Peter gets more than he paid for when he books a 36-hour session with the sadistic Mistress Satana who seems more intent on making him suffer for his sins. Is it blackmail? Is it torture? Or is it the Devil come for his soul? Will Peter’s faith save him from his own personal Hell or is he already damned? A brilliant depiction of how Kink Culture can heal past trauma and be a source for shocking redemption."[5]
