Doing stand up comedy for years, Steve Bluestein has finally come into his own as a playwright. His talent has been honed from years of pounding the boards in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Reno, Tahoe and countless comedy clubs across the nation.
In the last few years his career (which includes television, feature films, cable and personal appearances) has taken a new direction. After writing for Norman Lear, he joined the sit com staff of “THIRTEEN EAST” for NBC, then went on to “TOTALLY HIDDEN VIDEO” as a segment producer for Fox TV and “THE NEW CANDID CAMERA” for Universal. Moving behind the scenes, he was production coordinator for SURPRISE GARDENER on HGTV. And rounding out his talents, his design skills were featured when his home was seen on Kitty Bartholomew’s YOU’RE HOME (also on HGTV). Most recently, his play WHEN ONE IS GONE won the Chameleon Theater Circle playwrights’ award, was also a finalist in the Palm Springs Playwrights’ Festival.
His play Rest, In Pieces has been optioned for Broadway and most recently had a staged reading in New York City with Olympia Dukakis and Louis Zorich. To add to his list of credits, Steve has been cast in the lead of Sam Bobreck’s new play ANNOYANCE, which is in pre-production for a New York City opening.
As always, Steve returns to his first love Stand-Up comedy as often as possible. His last tour has taken him from Coast to Coast. Most recently he opened for Lanie Kazan in concert and once again returning to Laughlin, Nevada to the Riverside Casino and The Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas.
“A strong improviser, it is recommended you not sit up front if you don’t want to talk to this fast witted comedian. His stock and trade is his rapid wit and an ability to improvise on any subject at the drop of a hat. See his show over and over again, 80% of the material will be new.” “I have to do it that way”, says the comedian… “otherwise I get too bored to stand on stage!” Bored is something you won’t be, Steve is hysterical.
Steve Bluestein is a man for all seasons, a comedian for all audiences… he’s a must see!
