Anthony Steven Kalloniatis (born August 23, 1967)[1][2] is an American stand-up comedian and actor,[3] best known by his stage name Ant.

Ant performed at comedy clubs across the USA beginning in 1991. In 1995, he was a semi regular cast member on the WB series Unhappily Ever After, spending four seasons on the sitcom.

Ant appeared as a contestant on Last Comic Standing, competing in seasons two and three.[4]

He was the host of VH1 reality series Celebrity Fit Club and was a regular judge of talent on Steve Harvey's Big Time. His television series, U.S. of Ant, premiered on MTV Network's gay-targeted Logo cable channel in the summer of 2006. Ant also frequently appeared as a commentator on such shows as VH1's Best Week Ever and CNBC's Dennis Miller, and was a regular guest on The Tyra Banks Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well as The Howard Stern Show.

In 2007, he appeared along with Snoop Dogg as a guest star on MTV's sketch comedy show Short Circuitz.

Ant also appeared as a regular celebrity guest on the game show, To Tell The Truth, alongside Jackée Harry, Meshach Taylor and John O'Hurley.

In 2008, he was a contestant on VH1's reality competition Celebracadabra, where celebrities trained with established magicians, and competed in an elimination-format contest. Ant was eliminated in episode 2 and brought back in episode 4, but did not go on to win.

On September 30, 2008, it was reported that Ant was suing British presenters Ant & Dec for using the name 'Ant' in the United States. The suit, among other things, alleges trademark infringement and fraud. The suit was dismissed in May 2010.[5]
