As one of America's premier comedian-impressionists, veteran funnyman and award-winning voice actor Steve Van Zandt has dazzled audiences from coast to coast and beyond with his hilarious and thoroughly-entertaining brand of stand-up comedy.
Described as "a master of mimicry with a lightening-quick wit and charismatic six-foot-five stage presence" by the New York Post, Steve combines his fresh and eclectic sense of humor with his amazing talent for celebrity impersonation to put his audiences on a rollicking roller-coaster ride of non-stop laughter.
Drawing from his vast and diverse repertoire of nearly 200 spot-on impressions, a typical Steve Van Zandt performance is jam-packed with an all-star line-up of priceless celebrity satire. At one moment Steve might take on the vocal and physical characteristics of a cocky Barack Obama...and in the very next, he becomes a snarling Jack Nicholson, or an intimidating Robert De Niro, or he transforms himself into a vocally-challenged Sylvester Stallone with uncanny accuracy.
From iconic Hollywood actors and political figures, to media personalities and even singers, no one is immune from Steve's good-natured parody that covers every era and spectrum of fame. The result is a hysterical dose of clean, crowd-pleasing comedy from start to finish.
Polished, uplifting and laugh-tested, the comedy of Steve Van Zandt will surely tickle the collective funny bone of your group, in the same way it has for hundreds of previous clients just like you! (References gladly provided upon request)
