Steve Stubblejumpski is a character that was created by Robert Saik in 1986. Who is Steve? Steve is just an ordinary guy trying to cope in an age of the information high-way while waiting for a paved road to his farm. He is an old Ukrainian farmer who is married to Stella and runs a mixed up farm near Double Bumps (Two Hills, Alberta).
Experience: Robert Saik (a.k.a. Steve Stubblejumpski) is the President of a consulting and technical marketing firm which works with agri-business in Canada and the northern U.S. Robert has a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture from the University of Alberta and has been a practicing Agrologist since 1983. He has farming, retail, manufacturing, distribution and consulting experience that span North America, Europe, Ukraine, Russia, and the Middle East. He has also made two comedy albums—Mad as a Cow and Dry Humour: Laughing in the Face of Drought—and is working on a third. Steve goes on stand-up gigs about 70 times per year
Comedy Style: Steve uses good “clean” humour to entertain and get his point across on farming, travel, politics, hunting, fishing, family life, technology, and the internet. He bounds on stage with a fur hat with cucumbers under the flaps, grease stained overalls and mukluks and proclaims: “If you are going to tell Ukrainian jokes, you gotta be of Ukrainian decent like me. If you can’t laugh, you can’t farm. If I tell German jokes like ‘Oktoberfest lasts longer than a Ukrainian Wedding’, I’m likely to get the hook.” “The material for Steve comes from the work that I do during the day as president of Agri-Trend,” says Saik. “There is no end of issues and so Steve’s routine is always changing.”
