Zero Boy


   Entertainer and “vocal cartoonist” Zero Boy is an East Village icon renowned for his unique blend of sound and mime, the results being akin to a performed comic book.

   A prolific entertainer, his solo comedic routines have been featured throughout the U.S. and Europe in traditional theater, vaudeville, burlesque, festivals, standAup comedy, television, radio, film, digital media/art as well as benefits and special events.
   On television, his vocal acrobatics have been featured in Fox and Friends, Good Day New York and MTV. He has performed at Joe’s Pub, Town Hall, Cooper Union Hall, and at the New York Public Library as part of The Moth series.

   His talents have also been seen in Germany, Spain, Ireland, Russia, Italy, Denmark, Belgium, and Switzerland. His unique sound talents and character voices have led to performances on numerous radio shows. He regularly performed a special “Stump Zero Boy” segment on NPR’s The Next Big Thing, which gave listeners a chance to commission a short-form radio cartoon by emailing the station a one sentence scenario. He also wrote and performed several radio plays for Stage Shadows at The Museum of Radio and Television.
