Steve Kramer

with Ziggy Klett

Steve Kramer started off by doing voice impersonations as a child. He got kicked off the school bus for impersonating both of his bus drivers and kicked out of several classes for impersonating his school teachers. Eventually, he moved on to impersonating celebrities such as Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, John Travolta, Gilbert Gottfried, and Sean Connery, just to name a few. Steve wanted to take advantage of his ability to impersonate others, so he started doing stand-up comedy in 1998. He taught himself how to play the guitar so he could add musical elements to his show as well, and in 1999, he mailed an audition tape from his home town of Kansas City to Warner Brother's Studios in Los Angeles for a sketch comedy show to be aired on national television that they were creating and casting for called "Hype". A few days later, Warner Brother's flew him out to Los Angeles to try out in person. More than 3,000 people auditioned for the show, so the competition was incredible. With only one spot left on the cast to fill, Steve had to audition right after Dane Cook. Talk about pressure! Steve landed the roll and co-starred with nine other extremely talented individuals including Frank Caliendo and "Chicken". He played President Bush, Keannu Reeves, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Justin Timberlake, Carson Daly, David Blane, Regis Philbin, and many others on national television. His headlining show is like something out of Vegas, filled with music, improv, and audience participation. Steve's second love is music. He is a one-man-band, so sometimes he argues and sleeps with himself.

Ziggy Klett

Ziggy Klett was born in the deep north. The youngest of six children, he is four generations deep into an evil brew of Catholic rage and Jewish guilt. Often ridiculed as a youth for sporting bizarre hairstyles and colorful Norwegian sweaters, he quickly developed a twisted sense of humor. As a prolific bed wetter, his imaginary childhood friend, Mr. Peanut, guided him skillfully through a peculiar childhood of dumpster fires and petty theft.

A shaving scandal involving the girl’s archery team marred junior high for Ziggy; high school lowlights include being named valedictorian of his summer school class, being selected most likely to be water boarded, an unfortunate period of incarceration for his involvement in a pyramid-marketing scheme of homemade Tasers. Luckily, all charges were later dropped and he did, eventually, graduate.

College was a continuous blur of raucous parties and sophomoric stunts. Then classes started. After graduating (sort of) cum laude, Ziggy spent a brief period of time teaching Driver’s Ed at The Sorbonne in Paris and English as a Second Language in Detroit.

Comedy came quite naturally to Ziggy because, frankly, there was nothing else left to do. His comedic style can only be described as a bizarre cross between Sam Kinison, Robin Williams and Yves Montaigne. He is fast and furious, deep and shallow, high and low, but, mostly, he is simply pure, unadulterated Ziggy.
