Steve Solomon Plays 20 Roles in "My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish, and I'm Home for the Holidays"
Steve Solomon is one of America's best story tellers and dialecticians. He delivers his comedy in the form of three shows built around the premise that his mother is Italian and his father is Jewish. That's the perfect setup for delivery of a barrage of nonstop jokes and situations involving multiple dialects.
His shows are all one-man shows, but he takes on the persona of 20 different characters, including his parents, his sister, his daughter, and his doctor.
Solomon's first show was titled My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish, and I'm in Therapy. His second show continued the theme with ... and I'm Still in Therapy. His latest show, ... and I'm Home For the Holidays picks up where they other two left off and continues his hilarious impressions and stories.
In this show, Steve’s headed home to celebrate the holidays with his wildly dysfunctional family but he’s stuck at the airport with all flights canceled due to a storm….the phone calls begin–the chaos begins. We get to attend holiday dinner at Uncle Paulie’s where, if you’re under 55 you get to sit at “the children’s table.” Thirty five over-fed people and one toilet. Peace on Earth, Good will towards men and Where’s the plunger?
Here's a nine-minute clip with some of the funny bits from the show. It will be playing at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania from November 6 through November 17, and at the Smith Center in Las Vegas from December 5 through December 8.
