Synopsis

Canadian comedy icon David Steinberg's career influenced a generation, and now, after 25 years, he returns to the stage. Born in Winnipeg, he abandoned Yeshiva in Chicago to join the legendary Second City. He was a regular guest on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson and his standup shows placed him in the ranks of George Carlin and Richard Pryor. His comedy was too controversial, at times, resulting in the cancellation of "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour." His high profile directing credits include "Seinfeld," "Mad About You," "Golden Girls" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
