CONGRATS! YOU'VE FOUND THE PERFECT COMEDY ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR EVENT.
If "imitation" the sincerest form of flattery, then Steve Van Zandt really knows how to give a compliment! Renowned as one of America's premier Comic-Impressionists and Professional Voice Actors, Steve's award-winning talent and eclectic style of humor has been dazzling audiences all across America and beyond for more than three decades. A "Master of Mimicry" with a quick wit and captivating six-foot-five stage presence, Steve delivers a well-polished and hysterical stand-up comedy performance that can best be described as a rollicking roller-coaster ride of non-stop laughs!
Taking full advantage of his incredible knack for doing spot-on celebrity impersonations, Steve's live show is jam-packed with dozens of his hilarious parodies of the world's most celebrated personalities. He skillfully weaves together his vast and diverse repertoire of over 150 famous voices with funny and clever content (ranging from squeaky-clean to PG-13). Steve's material touches on every era and spectrum of fame - from iconic Hollywood actors, to political figures, media personalities and even singers! At one moment, he might take on the vocal and physical characteristics of a cocky Barack Obama, and in the very next moment Steve could become a snarling Jack Nicholson...an intimidating Robert De Niro...or a vocally-challenged Sylvester Stallone with jaw-dropping accuracy and side-spitting hilarity.
Thoroughly entertaining, uplifting and memorable, a performance by Steve Van Zandt is sure to be a huge hit with YOUR group as well!
