ABOUT STEVE SOLOMON

Steve Solomon

STEVE SOLOMON (Author/Actor) A native of Brooklyn, Steve grew up in the multi-ethnic neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay. This was the perfect training ground for a dialectician and comedian. Steve learned at an early age how to use his gift for imitating accents to his advantage. He also realized that he was a prolific writer of jokes and stories; real jokes. He submitted dozens of his stories to periodicals, friends and stand up comics he knew in the business. With the coming of the internet and e-mail, Steve now had an outlet for much of his comedy writings. One e-mail full of his jokes became ten, ten became hundreds, soon thousands of fellow e-mailers were enjoying Steve’s humor; and so it went for over twenty years. To this day, Steve receives e-mail versions of his own jokes from all over the world. So, if some of the hilarious stories you hear “ring” familiar; trust me, they’re probably Steve’s. Using humor, dialects and sound effects in teaching, Steve was real life version of Gabe Kaplan’s “Welcome Back Kotter.” Eventually, Steve became a Physics teacher and an assistant superintendent of schools on Long Island, New York. He left his academic career behind and turned his attention to his latent love of making people laugh. As Steve puts it, “I decided to follow my heart and become an impoverished comedy writer and performer.” Steve’s show, the three-time award winning My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m In Therapy has met with rave reviews to sold out crowds throughout the country and became one of the longest running one-man comedy shows in history. Steve has written three additional sequels to his original hit: My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m STILL in Therapy and his hilarious holiday show; My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m Home for the Holidays! Steve’s shows are currently touring the United States, Canada, and South Africa and have received critical acclaim including winning The Connecticut Critics Circle Award, The San Francisco Drama Desk nomination, Broadway.com “Best new off-Broadway play. Steve’s latest creation, Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt... the therapy continues, is a compilation of the very best of Steve’s work as well as his new comedy material. One note: All the voices you’ll hear in the show tonight are Steve’s. Enjoy!
