Ken started doing impressions very young, by cracking up all his friends at school by imitating his teachers. It started in 9th grade with an English teacher from Austria, Ken became Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a 35-year career was launched in Las Vegas. Ken’s parents have always been very supportive of his career choice. When he told them he had become a doctor, they were thrilled. They just never thought he’d be Dr. Phil and Dr. Ruth all in the same evening.
Ken has become one of the most versatile Comic/Impressionists on the scene today. He performs in venues across the globe from Theaters, Luxury Cruise Lines, and Showrooms from Hawaii to Atlantic City. With over 100 impressions in each show, spanning over 50 years of singers, comedians, politicians and show business luminaries, his universally received performance has something for everyone.
If you are lucky enough to see a Ken Block show, you will laugh, you will cry, but most of all, you will be entertained.
