Sol Bernstein | Celebrity Comedian | UK

Sol Bernstein

Hiring a celebrity to endorse your brand, service or event is very simple. Contraband is the UK’s top booking agent, with friendly, experienced account managers who guarantee you the best deal possible. 
Sol Bernstein is available to book for a variety of corporate events. We work in direct association with his representative as his preferred booking agent.  

The legend that is Sol Bernstein escaped the Pogroms in Russia, the Nazis in Germany, and went on to become the world’s first all-round entertainer. He’s a song and dance man, a comedian, a magician, an actor, a jazz musician (Sol was rated “Best Triangle Player” in the USA in the 50’s by performers like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington). 

Sol Bernstein has performed two solo shows. The first one “Almost Alive” was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2003 and won “Spirit of the Fringe Award”, and “Almost Live 11″ in 2004.

Sol has performed all over the world at venues including The London Palladium, New York’s Carnegie Hall, The Paris Olympia, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and Scunthorpe Baths, but it’s at night clubs where Sol really comes to life. Put together his charisma, style, chutzpah and his catch phrase “why don’t you put on a tie” and you see the magic that is Sol Bernstein. Sol has worked with Elvis, Judy Garland, The Rat Pack, Lenny Bruce, Jack Benny, George Burns, Milton Berle, Doris Day, Tommy Cooper, Eric Morecambe and Eddie Large. 

Most young performers will mention Sol Bernstein as a major influence. A major influence to do what, we aren’t sure, but an influence never the less!
