Solomon brings new one-man show to Invisible Theatre

Steve Solomon

Steve Solomon, star and creator of one of the longest running one-man comedy shows in history, “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish & I’m in Therapy,” presents a new show next month at the Invisible Theatre.

In “My Mother’s Italian, My Father’s Jewish and I’m Home for the Holidays: The Therapy Continues,” Solomon is back with more wild stories and characterizations of his eccentric family and friends — the ones who drove him into therapy in the first place.

Solomon grew up in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, a multiethnic neighborhood that was the perfect training ground for a budding dialectician. Before turning his talents to theatre, he was a real-life version of Gabe Kaplan in “Welcome Back Kotter,” using jokes, accents and sound effects to teach physics on Long Island, N.Y.

Performances will be Monday, Dec. 19 and Tuesday, Dec. 20, at 7:30 p.m. at The Berger Performing Arts Center, 1200 W. Speedway. Tickets are $42. Call 882-9721 or go to and click on the Ovationtix logo.
