Stewie has logged many side-splitting performances in the big rooms of Las Vegas, Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, Atlantic City and all across the country and overseas.
Born in Brooklyn, Stewie grew up in the back of his Dad’s dance studio where music and performing became a natural part of his life. While attending Brooklyn College he worked for his father teaching tap and ballroom lessons. Not seeing much of a future in the dance business, Stewie took drum lessons and landed his first band job at sixteen, where he had the opportunity to observe many comics, a talent he knew he always possessed. It is here that he found his calling. He quickly started working out at Pips, a popular comedy club in Brooklyn, and soon was traveling the Playboy Circuit, the job where he really learned his craft.

When he is not performing in entertainment venues, he is working for corporations as a motivational speaker at conventions. He is also the current vice-president of the Friars Club in NYC, which keeps him relevant and sharpens his organization skills.
Stewie is a comic’s comic; he has the uncanny ability to ad-lib extemporaneously, which is why he is so often requested for private roasts.
