BIOGRAPHICAL DATA

Oscar is originally from Cleveland, Ohio. He moved out to Las Vegas when he was nineteen years old and has been performing professionally since 1978, starring as half of the “Ain’t Brothers”. His stand-up comedy act consists of ADULT humor, a variety of impressions, anecdotes and Bernie, a parody on ventriloquism. We are billed as "The World's Worst Ventriloquist Act You'll ever see!" Bernie declares he wants to debate Triumph, the insult dog, in any political arena! Bernie is an obnoxious, politically incorrect, parrot puppet characterization of George Burns, complimented by Oscar doing Mr. Burns's voice. Mr. Burns, while performing at Caesar’s Palace, encouraged Oscar, by telling him that he had flopped in show business for 20 years before he made it. Oscar said, "That makes me feel good." Mr. Burns asked, "Why's that?" and Oscar said, "I flopped for 10, I'm half way there!" Mr. Burns laughed and said, "Never quit kid." Oscar was also the owner of Academy Award Productions, shooting freelance videography and over 100 videos on Oscar and Bernie Youtube channel. He has taped Jerry Lewis, Robert Goulet, Phyllis Diller, Mickey Mantle, Ernest Borgnine, Norm Crosby, Don Rickles and Sylvester Stallone, and many other comics at different events. Oscar moved back to Cleveland for family concern's in 1996 and came back to Las Vegas in 2004. Oscar is 6' tall and weighs 180 pounds; he has silver hair ( it's not grey! ) and brown eyes. Oscar’s hobbies are water and snow skiing, dancing and comedic glass collecting.  While living in Ohio, Oscar had been performing at numerous Clubs and Lodges in the Cleveland area, and recently was back in Cuyahoga Falls, at the new Funny Stop, for a week engagement. Oscar says,"I plan to produce a show of all puppeteers, titled "Guys With Dolls," and start a foundation, "Puppets for Patients," distrubuting puppets to children in hospitals. I'm also collaborating with people now to produce"The Blue Collar Cook" starring IBEW Chef, Tommy Klesch." Oscar provided the comic relief for Dave Roman’s creative thinking workshop "Fire Your Boss" at Lakeland Community College, and has released his eBook titled,"Sometimes...You Gotta' Kicka' Cab!" I now have a happy ending. Call 702-515-9162
