Copy of NEW_HEAD_JPGSteve Solomon’s
award winning performances are a delicious mix of
comedy, cultures, and political incorrectness!

Steve Solomon has a busy South Florida winter ahead.  He will perform his Stand Up comedy at the Lyric Theatre in Stuart, on December 3rd; a prequel to his wildly successful My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish, & I’m in Therapy aptly and appropriately called My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m STILL in Therapy…the Chaos Continues…  will play from December 18th through December 22nd at the  Kravis Center for the Performing Arts – returning there by popular demand after last year’s sold out run; and his new show, Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt! The Therapy Continues… will open at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts and run from February 5th through February 16th.

STANDUP SHOT 1Solomon’s humor is universal, and universally loved.  Enhanced by his talent for impersonation and his mastery of different dialects – he does approximately 20 different characters and voices in his shows – his stories about his mixed heritage Italian/Jewish family resonate with everyone, no matter what their ethnicity, and have had audiences in stitches for over 3200 performances.  In fact his recent performances of Still in Therapy broke all box office and attendance records in the 28 year history of the Bristol Riverside Theatre in Philadelphia.

And as Solomon will tell you himself – he’s politically incorrect: bristol still steve on set
“Of course I am!  My entire family is politically incorrect; and that’s what helps make the shows so funny.  The very fact that we can go out to the theatre a spend an evening laughing at ourselves—and the antics of others – without fear of pending imprisonment helps make this the great country it is – or used to be before the hordes of  the politically correct police came banging on our doors.”

gpo_a2-d7k_8722He will also tell you his shows are full of stereotypes:
“Yep,” he says, in answer to his ‘politically correct’ critics “That was my life; stereotypical Italian and Jewish aunts who spent the entire day in house dresses stirring sauces and soup.   Since I’m describing my family as they were, why should anyone be offended by the stereotypes I portray when the people who ARE the stereotypes don’t get offended?

“In fact,” he continues, “Not once, in the 11 years my plays have been touring, have I ever received a complaint from a patron about how offended they were – indeed it’s usually the opposite.  I get dozens of e-mails and letters thanking me for the show and saying, ‘….that was my uncle….’  Or, ‘you nailed my Mom….’”  “…I think we grew up in the same house…”

Steve Solomon epitomizes the phrase ‘multi-faceted’.  He is an STAND UP SHOT 2 (4)accomplished pianist, composer, and lyricist; a member of MENSA, a painter and cartoonist (all his show logos are his own creations); a teacher – he has two Master’s degrees and an SDA and ABD degree in education and taught physics in Long Island, New York (where he eventually became Assistant to the Superintendent of Schools); and according to his wife he can fix anything except, according to Solomon, the way certain seniors drive in South Florida!

Solomon, who lives in Boynton Beach, is extremely happy to be performing again in his own ‘stomping grounds’: “Why do I come back to the Kravis Center or the Lyric or Coral Springs? The people! South Florida has some of the most sophisticated and delicious audiences in the country—they love to laugh and I love to perform for them. It’s that simple!”
