There are a few working pornstars that have the honour of being in the SAG-AFTRA. Tommy Pistol is one of those pornstars.
Tommy Pistol is an American male pornstar who has even dabbled his hands in direction, as well.
Known as one of the most entertaining performers on and off the screen, he is known for various porn parodies like Evil Head, Suicide Squad: An Axel Braun Parody and Pee-Wee’s XXX Adventure: A Porn Parody.
Tommy Pistol’s comedy roots
When Tommy Pistol co-hosted the 2015’s AVN Awards with Alexis Texas, everyone was praising the hosts. Doing so, he became the first male pornstar to host the AVN Awards in 20 years.
Most of these praises were directed towards Pistol as viewers found him to be charming and hilarious. It’s hard to find that in an adult performer.
His comedic roots were first discovered in 2012’s Pee-Wee’s XXX Adventure: A Porn Parody. The 2015’s AVN just cemented his position as the comedic genius of the adult film industry.
Growing up as Aramis Sartorio, Pistol worked as an actor with a sketch comedy group, Cheese Theater, in Queens, New York.
He pursued his comedy career for more than a decade before finally switching to the porn industry in 2005.
During this time, Pistol met with the founder of Burning Angel, Joanna Angel. As a result of this, Pistol went on to become the first male pornstar to be featured on the Burning Angel website.
The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol
In 2010, Tommy Pistol directed and starred in a horror-comedy film, The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol.
Pistol co-wrote the film with his wife, Gia Paloma.
The movie failed to connect with the audience and hence, failed to do well at the box office.
However, Pistol developed a knack for direction and went to direct a feature horror-porn, Beyond Fucked: A Zombie Odyssey.
Ever since then, Pistol has managed to garner a legendary status in the adult industry.
In 2018, he rocked the White House as one of his tweets got a like from The President’s daughter, Ivanka Trump.
People on the internet had a field day with this. As Sydney Leathers pointed out, “At least Ivanka has a good taste in porn actors.”
