By popular demand, PKH is thrilled to welcome back Sarge!
Sarge, born in Miami, raised in NY, Sarge is a one of a kind Jewish comedian who delivers one of the most entertaining and hilarious performances ever to hit the stage and he does it without reducing the level of his performance to profanity or vulgarity. He’s as funny as anyone you’ve ever seen. His rapid-fire, off-the-cuff style of observational comedy takes aim on his life and the world in general spoken in a phenomenal way that’s edgy but never over the line. Think a modern day Don Rickles without the insults.
Born in Florida during the tumultuous 1960s, Sarge was the son of a Jewish mother and black father. Shortly after birth, Sarge was put up for adoption and was taken in and raised by a couple living in Long Island, New York. An initial childhood interest in music blossomed into a fruitful relationship with the piano. However, growing up, the entertainer struggled with drug abuse and homelessness, eventually finding peace in 1990 and quitting his addiction cold turkey. From then on, Sarge decided to devote his life to helping others who are going through the same struggle. This personality-shaping experience was a crucial element of Sarge’s eventual decision to become a comedian, learning to therapeutically deal with trying situations through the outlet of comedy.
Sarge has been featured on HBO and Comedy Central, and has opened for celebrities like Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin and The Beach Boys. He has performed on some of the most renowned stages in show business, including Radio City Music Hall. Sarge got his first big break when he wrote, produced and performed for FOX network’s “Best Damn Sports Show Period.” When “NFL Today” host Greg Gumbel encouraged him to “be a comedian, you’re too funny, too creative and too bright not to go for a comedy career,” Sarge took his advice. It’s lucky for us that he did.
