Before becoming a famous comedian, actor, and impressionist, Stephen Sorrentino grew up on his family’s horse ranch on Long Island, New York, where his grandfather raised thoroughbreds. Being around the dogs and horses made him an animal lover and advocate from day one. “As a child, and even more so today, I feel a strong connection to all animals because you can look into their eyes and see so much kindness. They trust us, and we have an obligation to return that kindness by taking care of them,” he says.
The desire to defend animals extended to the times his father tried to take him hunting. “It all seemed so wrong to me,” Stephen says. He would throw rocks in the bushes where he heard the deer to scare them off. This saved their lives–but did not en-“dear” him to his dad.
“I believe that in order for animals to be treated well, there needs to be systematic changes to protect them through the law,” Stephen explains. His award-winning show features 180 signature impressions, music, and humor. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster, and all proceeds will go to ALDF.
If you can’t make the performance, stay tuned for Stephen Sorrentino’s upcoming reality show that will work to expose animal abuse. The show will shed light on animal cruelty, and remind people of their responsibility to provide animals with the love and compassion they deserve.
We hope to see you April 17!
