Award-winning comedian Steve Solomon is coming to the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater! For Steve Solomon, the road to a career in comedy began during his childhood in Brooklyn, where he picked up the many accents and dialects he heard on the streets of his multi-ethnic neighborhood. This self-professed “class clown” grew up to become a physics teacher and an assistant superintendent of schools. Steve used humor, dialects, and sound effects to inspire his students and tick off fellow administrators. Eventually, however, Solomon felt the irresistible urge to follow his heart and write comedy. He returned to his roots to write the autobiographical one-man show: My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m In Therapy! The show played for two sold-out years in New York City and has toured internationally in more than 100 cities. It spun off various sequels, the newest of which is Cannoli, Latkes & Guilt…the therapy continues, a compilation of the very best Steve’s work as well as his new comedy material. All four of his shows are currently touring.
