Tony Declan Slattery was a performer on the British edition of Whose Line.

Famous for his dirty mind, Tony often found himself as the host in Party Quirks and feuding with Clive Anderson, in one famous event screaming "Well F*** OFF" at him after failing to guess a certain quirk.

Tony had a particular knack of being able to draw attention to himself, often with his uncontrollable giggle which would manifest itself in the middle of a Hoedown. On one occasion (in a compilation of segments never aired) Tony's pants split in the middle of a game, something which Clive accused him of doing on purpose.

Tony's abilities in singing games dealt more with his lyricism, rather than any other talent. He was the drinker in the famous Bartender game in which he was "in love with an inflatable pig", a situation giving rise to the lyric "I've got a problem I'd like to report/When I see Porky Pig my pants distort".

His relationship onstage with Josie Lawrence was another running source of humour, as Josie tended to be strong enough to stand up to him. This was seen in one game of Helping Hands in which Tony provided Josie's hands and did precisely the opposite of what she wanted him to do (putting a cake on the head of a doll, for example). Eventually, as he was in the middle of massaging her breasts, Josie bit his fingers.

Tony and Josie were also involved in the Bartender game in which Tony was "angry about his middle name", which was revealed to be Declan. For lyrical purposes, this became Patricious. Josie, unable to resist the temptation, completed her verse with the lines "So be proud, Patricious. Come on, take my flattery. It's better than being called Tony Slattery". Greg Proops had once teased him a Hoedown about Sex.
