Skip Griparis presents an extraordinary comedic and musical one-man stage
show, featuring satirical impressions of more than 45 stars of song, TV,
and the silver screen, from the 50's to the present.
Skip's remarkable, high energy tour de force showcases a unique blend of precise, sidesplitting impressions; clean, insightful satire; virtuoso guitar picking; an astonishingly versatile 3 1/2 octave vocal range that sends the folks home buzzing, "What a voice! And he looks like everyone he does!"
Skip's credits are extensive. He has headlined major comedy clubs across the country, from Dangerfield's in New York to the Ice House in Los Angeles. In his home town of Chicago, he once headlined the city's premier club, Zanies, four consecutive weeks, an achievement unmatched. A Chicago Tribune poll honored Skip as one of the top five comics in the nation.
Skip Griparis is a genuine master of classic rock, pop, soul, jazz and
country, so he needs no prerecorded tapes, no electronic tricks. Just
more musical fun than you ever thought possible from one guy and a guitar.
