"…A solid professional.", "…hilarious…",
"very appropriate for the corporate environment." These are quotes
from just a few of Milt Abel's corporate clients.
A stand-up comedian with over twenty years of professional experience,
Milt has performed everywhere from television to cruise ships, from
comedy clubs and college campuses to corporate events ranging in
audience size of twenty to two thousand.
After a B.A. degree in drama Milt went right into a stand-up career
and never looked back. He's made numerous television appearances,
several performances on An Evening At The Improv, and comedy
specials for PBS and Showtime, and he regularly performs for cruise
lines like Royal Caribbean, Holland America, and Princess.
Milt's style of stand-up comedy is clean, clever, and funny. His
humor has always been devoid of stereotypes, cheap shots, or laughter
at anyone's expense; in other words, never divisive or derisive.
With material focusing on everyday experiences about his wife and
kids, travels, and how we relate to the world around us; audiences
always come away feeling good about how they chose to laugh.
Milt is a writer as well; he's written for Dennis Miller's television
show and published a collection of humorous short stories, Stories
from the Delux. With his writing ability and performance skills,
Milt can make every show unique, enjoying the challenge of personalizing
each show with jokes for that performance's audience.
An expressive performer; The Denver Rocky Mountain News said, "Half
the show is watching his face as he tells his stories."
"I sincerely appreciate that you showed up early to learn about
our company, our people, and personalized your routine ... I have
had many employees come up to me with thanks and positive comments
about the job you did ... the bottom line is your routine was very
appropriate for the business environment and it was flat-out funny!"
