South Florida favorite Steve Solomon’s shows are Politically Incorrect –
and he’s proud of it!

Delray Beach, December 2014:
Steve SolomonSteve Solomon will bring his new hit show, Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt…The Therapy Continues… to The Delray Beach Center for the Arts’ Crest Theatre on January 3rd and 4th, 2015, and to the Lyric Theatre in Stuart on January 6th, 2015. Cannoli… is a perfect showcase for Solomon’s impressive comedic talent, his inimitable story-telling ability, and his funny and clever facility with words, accents, and sounds. The show is full of new stories – those familiar with Solomon’s earlier productions know his family consistently provides him with a goldmine of humor and humorous situations – as well as a compilation of some of the best of his earlier work. His previous shows include My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy, My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m STILL in Therapy, and Steve’s Holiday Show (and his personal favorite) My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish …. & I’m Home For the Holidays.

Steve Solomon’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 delighted and entertained audiences for over 4000 performances.

Steve SolomonAnd as Solomon will tell you himself – he’s politically incorrect:
“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 and spend an evening laughing at ourselves—and the antics of others – without fear of repercussion helps make this the great country it is!”

He 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.  Maybe they were stereotypes, but they were – they are – my family, and I’m only describing what I know… and love!

“In fact,” he continues, “Not once, in the 12 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….’”  Or “…I think we grew up in the same house…”

Steve Solomon epitomizes the word ‘multifaceted’.  He is an 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!
