Steve Solomon’s My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m in Therapy

You don’t have to be Italian or Jewish to love Steve Solomon -- all you need to know is what it’s like to leave a family dinner with heartburn and a headache. Prepare to laugh until you cry as Steve brings to life over twenty wacky characters in a show that's one part lasagna, one part kreplach and two parts Prozac.

Background

Starring the author and Broadway star of the show, Steve Solomon. This show has now become one of the longest running one-man comedies in history! The show just celebrated its four thousandth performance.

In My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy! Using dialects, accents and sound effect, Steve brings to the stage dozens of wild characters we all relate to; all brought to life by Steve’s comedy magic. His four shows have had audiences in three countries guffawing since 2003. Almost one million people have seen his shows. The audience follows along on this wonderfully funny journey about growing up, mixed marriages, ex-wives, dogs, cats, dieting, and dozens of other side-splitting situations we can all relate to.

It’s described as “One part lasagna, one part kreplach, and two parts Prozac,” but you don’t have to be Jewish or Italian to love this show. All you need is to know what it feels like to leave a family dinner with heartburn and a headache! Thirty five people, one toilet and one plunger.

About the Author
For Steve Solomon, the road to a career in comedy began during his childhood in Sheepshead Bay, 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 his 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 three sequels, My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m STILL in Therapy! and My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m Home for the Holidays. He’s quite proud of his newest hit show: CANNOLI, LATKES & GUILT….the therapy continues! All four of his shows are currently touring.
