Glenn Singer: El Gleno Grande
Glenn Singer is a renowned specialist in physical comedy and audience interplay. He's an artist who makes you laugh out loud, over and over and over again. He's a man who, perhaps as a young boy out riding his horsey stick in the driveway, had an important life-altering realization: "Now this is what I need to do when I grow up...." It doesn't matter if the median age of his audience is seventy, seventeen or seven. It doesn't matter if Singer is solo in a grand proscenium theatre, one of a line-up of comedic headliners in an international vaudeville festival, trotting in front of sequins and tuxedos at a charity gala or headlining at Pebble Beach or The Americas Cup, the Legend of El Gleno Grande has universal and ageless appeal. Not since Trigger have four legs been so loved.
El Gleno Grande has now brought snorts of laughter on six continents during a career that spans almost 20 years. Television credits include America's Funniest People, the Statler Brothers, Showtime and broadcast specials in Germany, Japan, South America and Japan. Corporate clients span an international Who's Who including Universal Studios, Bosch, Caesar's Palace, Johns Hopkins University, the Tel Aviv Jazz Fest, United Airlines, Harley Davidson and World Cup Japan. Your evening with Glenn Singer and his equestrian spectacular can stand alone in a full 90-minute performance, can share the stage in a comedic double bill with your choice or his of the appropriate co-star, and can also serve festival formats with multiple synopsized repeat appearances.

A Presenter's Point of View
El Gleno Grande is like a Tickle Me Elmo experience. It's just laugh after laugh after laugh after laugh. Seeing an act that has such genuine, solid appeal to young and old alike is a too-infrequent occurrence in our business, and this performance is one of those moments of joy that helps us remember just how great it is to do what we do. This is a man who'll have folks falling out of their chairs from laughter. What's fun is to then ask them to describe the show to others — and watch them start to speak and just simply begin to laugh. Glenn Singer is a very, very smart and talented individual. And he rides one helluva steed.
