Steve Ivings is an Impressionist, Comedian, Actor, Writer, Director, Producer, and Recording Artist.
Experience: Steve began working on celebrity impersonations (including George Burns) when he was sixteen and very quickly became a popular and much-requested entertainer in his home town of Victoria, British Columbia. Now, after over thirty years travelling throughout Canada and the United States, performing at conventions, fairs, festivals and concerts, on television and on cruise ships.
Steve’s latest comedy venture is “mini-roasts”. With a few well-chosen bits of information about the guest of honour Steve creates a ten to fifteen minute speech on cassette or CD during which the birthday guest, retiring CEO or bride and groom get a few good natured shots from the likes of Sean Connery, Sylvester Stallone or Queen Elizabeth. If you’re looking for a bigger show, Steve has also produced, written, directed and performed in a number of variety shows ideal for a British Pub Night, a Las Vegas Casino Night or a Hollywood themed event.
Performance Style: Jack Nicholson describing his first date, Jimmy Stewart giving diet tips, Sean Connery expressing his love for the Scottish sport of curling…It’s all part of the fun when Steve Ivings unleashes his repertoire of over one hundred celebrity impressions onstage. Television personalities, politicians, movie stars, everybody’s a target for Steve’s quick wit and bang-on impressions. And the results are hilarious.
Steve has also created a number of “phonies”: guest speakers (the boring intellectual, the inebriated university professor, the nervous executive) who begin their keynote speech quite seriously but deteriorate to the point where the audience soon realizes they’ve been “had” and begin to join in the fun. Steve’s show is fast-paced and his talent to move from one celebrity voice to another is amazing. Combine that with Steve’s writing ability, giving him the opportunity to personalize his material for any particular group, and you’ve got a great evening of entertainment that will delight any audience.
