S. Frank Stringham
S. Frank Stringham (everybody just calls him "S."), is a multi-talented entertainer who will make you laugh and make you feel good about yourself!!
S. has been an entertainer in almost every kind of venue that you can think of; from musical theatre to the silver screen; from small classrooms to major convention halls; from the comedy clubs of Los Angeles to the vaudeville clubs half way around the world.
His talents come from a position of love...he loves to perform, he loves to laugh, and he loves to see others laugh. In fact, he has been accused of making people laugh who have never before laughed in their lives. His mission statement includes the four “L’s”...”to bring Love, Life, Light, and Laughter into the lives of everyone I come in contact with...” S. has over 30 years of professional experience in most fields of entertainment!
For over 20 years S. has been performing, using his talents as a singer, songwriter, playwright, balloon artist, comedian, actor, pianist, and Master of Ceremonies, for companies and producers like Sears, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, The Flying Elvi, An Evening At The Improv, Caesar’s Palace, NBC, FOX, ABC, and The Comedy Store; to awe audiences like Big Brothers and Sisters of America, The Children’s Miracle Network, Japan, Belgium, England, Air Supply, Budweiser, Martin Scorsece and many others.
S. was on America's Got Talent, and although he was buzzed off immediately (it’s difficult to put your head around what he does in less than 3 minutes), he got many gigs afterwards because of it. S. also has a friend/character that he introduces to audiences every once in a while, One-Eyed Jack (his eye is made out of balloons). One-Eyed Jack can sing, can transport himself, can do comedy, and he knows EVERYTHING.
When it comes to teaching, S. has been teaching music theory, voice lessons, piano lessons, and various other instruments (guitar, clarinet, violin) for over 35 years. He was also the music and theater teaching at American Heritage Academy in Las Vegas for over 10 years. There he wrote orchestra pieces and movie and stage musicals. On top of that, he did much of the choreography for the various productions throughout the years.
