CareerEdit

Sartorio started his career in Queens NY 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]

He entered the pornography business in late 2005,[2] after meeting with Joanna Angel, founder of alt porn company, Burning Angel. This meeting led to Pistol being the first male performer on BurningAngel.com.[citation needed] Angel was also responsible for choosing the moniker Tommy Pistol, after nixing Pistol's original idea of A-Mac. In 2010, Pistol (as Aramis Sartorio) wrote, directed and had the title role in the independent horror-comedy film The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol.[2] 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 20 years to host the annual AVN Awards in Las Vegas, NV, along with Alexis Texas.

Pistol, as Aramis Sartorio, has made several appearances in independent films, including Bethany, Jurassic City, and the lead role in Frankie In Blunderland. Since 2016, Sartorio 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 has enjoyed mainstream recognition when his minor role as 'The Cook' in Brazzers.com's Tatas Under Siege: An XXX Parody went viral on Twitter. Pistol has also been featured on Buzzfeed.com, Uproxx.com, and most recently Elle.com[3], as a tweet mocking Donald Trump was liked by his daughter, Ivanka Trump.

MusicEdit

Sartorio was once a singer for the metalcore band AmoreA.[citation needed] He also performed as DJ Tommy Pistol on for the soundtrack of his film The Gruesome Death Of Tommy Pistol.

Personal lifeEdit
