Milt Abel is a solid professional in every respect. You will not see him pick on a group. His comedy is neither derisive nor divisive.
He first started performing in college, eventually writing, directing and acting in his own plays for students and faculty. After graduating with honors from San Jose State University, Milt Abel moved to San Francisco in search of a career in stand-up comedy and a reasonably priced apartment no easy task in San Francisco. "I'm beginning to think that Adam and Eve's real punishment wasn't so much that they had to leave the garden, as it was that they had to find another place..."
A headlining stand-up comedian for more than ten years, he has performed throughout the United States and Canada in venues ranging from corporate engagements to cruise ships, from television to bars masquerading as comedy clubs under names like "Ha Ha a Go Go."
When asked what got him into comedy, he replied, "The brochures were very alluring. There was also a campus recruiter who had set up a stand with a banner reading: 'Want to make people laugh at night and then sleep until noon?' Of course! That sounded great to me."
His favorite joke has been this: "A friend of mine spent his entire life trying to find the secret to immortality. You know what his dying words were? 'No, that's not it either.' "
Milt has appeared on PBS' "Comedy Tonight" hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, A&E's "Good Time Cafe," four spots on A&E's "Evening at the Improv," the Comedy Channel's "Comics Only" and "Two Drink Minimum" and Showtime's "Comedy Club Network."
What Others Say about Milt Abel --
"Our company has high expectations and your act and its presentation had all attendees laughing hysterically for over thirty minutes! You did a marvelous job adapting to the group and making it an intimate show. Everyone who attended commented on what a fun and entertaining event the company hosted and the main reason was Milt Abel!" -- Gary W. Fales, President
"Our Intel group had a great time and enjoyed your show tremendously. As our group consists largely of international cultures, it was quite a task to cross so many cultural barriers and succeed so well. I've been told that humor is a cultural identity, but you wouldn't know that during your performance. You made us laugh across the tables. I especially appreciate that your material was clean and non-offensive. You respect the audience and used the humor that touches us in universal ways: families, traffic, relationships. Many in the group felt this event was the best Intel had ever done! Thanks for an evening of laughter."
-- Karey Hart, Intel
